I’ve Got The Looks Spot On for Ramornie Handicap 2015

A smart gallop over the weekend from the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained I’ve Got The Looks has convinced the mare’s team she is spot on to return to form with a 2015 Ramornie Handicap win at Grafton Racecourse on Wednesday.

Team Snowden’s five-year-old daughter of Choisir is one of a capacity field of final acceptors released by Racing NSW for this year’s $150,000 Listed Crowe Horwath Ramornie Handicap (1200m).

Veteran hoop Robert Thompson replaces Blake Shinn in the saddle for the Grafton Cup Carnival’s sprint feature, I’ve Got The Looks drawn in barrier 11 but coming into 10 if the two emergencies fail to get a run.

She won two on the trot in Queensland earlier this autumn – winter season taking out the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) at the Gold Coast on Anzac Day before her Listed Junamo Stakes (1200fm) success at Doomben in early May.

Things went amiss for the Sydney-based mare however when she raced at Doomben again on May 23 in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m), I’ve Got The Looks only managing to finish three lengths away eighth behind the winner Peace Force.

Instead of stepping her out over more distance and taking her up in class for a shot at the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) in June, co-trainer Peter Snowden sent her for a freshen-up with an eye on returning for the Ramornie Handicap.

She finishes up her prep in Wednesday’s feature and is already dominating Ramornie Handicap betting markets after her excellent trackwork at Randwick on Saturday.

“She is in with a good chance and her form through the winter in Queensland was good,” Snowden told The Courier-Mail.

“She had a freshen-up after her last start with an eye of always targeting this race and she worked very well (on Saturday) so I feel she is back in good order again.

“She worked over 1000m and ran home the last 600m pretty solid and it was as good as she has ever worked.”

I’ve Got The Looks will carry 56kg in the Ramornie on Wednesday after weights were raised 1.5kg following the non-acceptance of original top weight Big Money; weights now led by Malavio (58kg).

That’s still a decent weight according to Snowden who said there were excuses last time over the 1350m in Brisbane.

“She just got too far back last start and we wanted to be in first four or five and she was third last at one stage,” he said.

“Back to 1200m is a different race and she is very well weighted.”

After Wednesday plans are to send I’ve Got The Looks out for a break before bringing her back towards the end of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Snowden meanwhile opted not to back-up WJ Healy Stakes winner Dothraki in the Ramornie Handicap after the Mossman four-year-old ran a luckless fifth behind Haussmann in the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) at Rosehill last Saturday.
