Rosehill Trial for 2015 Golden Rose Hope Press Statement

A Rosehill Gardens trial next Tuesday is set to be the official spring starting point for Chris Waller’s Golden Rose 2015 bound Group 1 winner Press Statement.

The Hinchinbrook colt, three years old on Saturday, is undefeated to date boasting a trio of wins from as many starts as a juvenile.

The latest and most important of those was also his first venture in not only Group 1 but black-type company when Tye Angland guided him to a three quarter length win over 2015 Crown Oaks hope Sagaronne in the JJ Atkins over the Doomben mile (1600m) on June 6.

That was also his sire Hinchinbrook’s first Group 1 success as a stallion.

Sent for a spell after the JJ Atkins success, Press Statement has reportedly come through his brief break in top order and is gearing up for a hit-out at Rosehill on August 4.

That will start the campaign of the $492,000 earner whose early target is the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) back at Rosehill Racecourse on September 12.

Waller has saddled up five Golden Rose starts over the years for a win and a third, his winner being Zoustar (2013).

Leading into the early Sydney Spring Racing Carnival major, Press Statement is likely to contest the traditional lead-up race – the $175,000 Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) on August 29.

Previously only holding Group 3 status, The Run To The Rose has produced the past three straight Golden Rose winners including the Bart & James Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown (2014) who completed the double last year.

Waller confirmed plans to give the galloper just the one run before the Golden Rose, the other possible stepping stone being the $125,000 Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) at Randwick on August 22.

The last Golden Rose winner to come via the Up And Coming Stakes a week before The Run To The Rose was Manawanui in 2011 who saluted in both races.

Futures Golden Rose betting at bookmakers around the country is firmly led by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Golden Slipper winner Vancouver who is set to trial against the likes of First Seal, Hi World and Kermadec in the second heat at Randwick on Friday morning over 850m.

Press Statement meanwhile can be found a little further down the futures Golden Rose odds at around $11 trailing other top fancies Pride Of Dubai and Mogador.

Peter & Paul Snowden’s Street Cry colt Pride Of Dubai was last seen completing the Blue Diamond Stakes – ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes Group 1 double during the autumn, while the John O’Shea-trained Lonhro colt Mogador is yet to win in black-type company.
