2015 San Domenico Stakes Hopes Race at Rosehill

A host of rising three-year-olds tracking towards a possible early Spring Group assignment in the San Domenico Stakes 2015 next month will face off at Rosehill on Saturday in the Bob Ingham Handicap.

One of the key support races on the Winter Stakes Day program, this year’s $85,000 Bob Ingham Handicap (1100m) is down to a dozen two-year-olds with King’s Troop the early favourite.

In the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au the Gerald Ryan-trained debutant pays $3.20 after coming up trumps with barrier one for his maiden start under race conditions.

A promising Redoute’s Choice colt, King’s Troop has had three Rosehill trials including a last start win over 904m defeating Inner Circle by an easy seven lengths on July 7.

It is that form the bookies are tipping him to bring to the races this weekend, although Ryan is warning punters of the value in the market.

“He’s only a little fella that’s taken a bit of time, we never tried him early,” he told Racenet.

“He had a trial back in February and pulled up shin sore so he went to the paddock.”

A $200,000 yearling buy, King’s Troop may have had the big margin to spare on the line in his latest trial but the winning time of 55.3 seconds was slower than half a dozen other heats over the same distance also for two-year-olds.

“He didn’t run an overly fast time,” Ryan said.

“And I’m not sure about most of the horses that finished behind him.”

Also high up the Bob Ingham Handicap betting markets are the likes of the John O’Shea-trained Street Cry colt Inner Circle ($4.40) in barrier three with James McDonald riding and market mover Voilier ($4.60).

Fourth in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) back in March, Inner Circle is heading towards a $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) bid back at Rosehill in September.

O’Shea could still remove him from Saturday’s race however due to the track conditions, the course a Heavy (8) on Thursday with more rain and a likely downgrade predicted.

Voilier meanwhile has internationally performed hoop Blake Shinn in the saddle, the Beneteau gelding having run second in February’s Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) and fifth to Vancouver when failing to beat home any of his rivals last time out in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) in early March at Randwick.

These gallopers are likely to head down the traditional Golden Rose path via the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) back at Rosehill on August 15, and with that in mind Ryan remains cautious about his galloper’s chances on Saturday.

“The San Domenico is on soon so the proven two-year-olds are starting to come back whereas my horse is on debut,” he said.

Other notable Bob Ingham hopes include Kevin Moses’s Zizou colt Zoutenant who won Wyong’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic before failing to fire in the lucrative Gold Coast edition of the same race in early January and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Hinchinbrook filly Carriages who also had her last start in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic in Queensland when eighth behind upset winner Le Chef.
