Stanley Launches 2015 Golden Rose Attack

A Golden Rose 2015 campaign is calling Brent Stanley’s highly credentialed youngster Attack The Line this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival following his debut in Melbourne on the weekend.

The Wanted colt turns three on Saturday and races for the first time in the second at Moonee Valley Racecourse taking on eight other colts and geldings of the same age in the $80,000 1PRINT Handicap (1000m).

Drawn a treat in gate four with ace hoop Damien Oliver in the saddle, Attack The Line has his maiden start on the back of a winning barrier trial from June 25 over 850m at Tatura.

In the month since that official hit-out the Sutton Grange-based Victorian trainer Stanley has been happy with the progression of his youngster who he has big plans for this season after labelling him the “best horse” he’s trained when speaking on RSN.

“He’s the best horse I’ve put a saddle on so I expect him to win,” Stanley said.

“He’s got a bit of a strenuous preparation in front of him if he lives up to what he has shown on the track.”

All going to plan Stanley hopes to give Attack The Line Group 1 assignments in both Sydney and Melbourne during the spring.

The first of those is the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Racecourse on September 12.

From there if he is living up to his potential the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over the mile in Melbourne on October 10 becomes the next logical elite level target.

“He’ll have a couple of runs and then head to Sydney for the Group I race (the Golden Rose) and then go towards the Caulfield Guineas,” Stanley confirmed.

In the Moonee Valley Race 2 markets at for Saturday Attack The Line, who is the only debutant in the line-up, is the market mover and equal $3.20 favourite with the rails-drawn Top Me Up.

Prepared by Team Hawkes, Exceed And Excel gelding Top Me Up has had two previous starts both in black-type company when second to Burnstone in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) in January and fourth to Of The Brave in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) in mid-February.

Stanley said he was leaving it up to Oliver where to settle Attack The Line in Saturday’s race but that he would be fast out of the gates.

“I’ll leave it up to Olly how the speed works out. He’ll begin good but if there’s a couple going quick he’ll be third if not, he’ll be in front,” he said.

“He’s just a professional. He’s just a good horse to have around the stable.

“He’s got to put it all together but he’s definitely a nice horse.”

Early Golden Rose odds at bookmakers around the country are clearly led by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Golden Slipper winner Vancouver who trials at Randwick this Friday.

Attack The Line meanwhile is paying around $26 even before his debut and is at $31 in futures Caulfield Guineas betting that is also led by $2.36 million earner Vancouver.
