Regal Roller then 2015 Cockram Stakes for Griante

David Brideoake has named the Cockram Stakes 2015 at the end of the month as the second-up target for his classy mare Griante following her race return in the Regal Roller Stakes at Caulfield this weekend.

A winner of six of her 18 starts to date for over $570,000 in prize money, five-year-old Good Journey mare Girante was last seen running second behind Avoid Lightning in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on April 11.

That followed a top autumn from the progressive galloper who won the Group 3 Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) second-up in early March before a brave third when defeated under two lengths by the winner Lucky Hussler in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley in Melbourne three weeks later.

She trialled at Cranbourne on Monday morning over 800m on a Heavy-rated track and caught the eye when third behind the exciting Rich Enuff, who won in a speedy 48.31 seconds, according to Brideoake who spoke to Racing Ahead on RSN.

“I am very happy with her, she has come through her trial yesterday (Monday) really well,” the Mornington-based Brideoake said.

“She has had a jumpout at Morington and she has had the trial at Cranbourne and we couldn’t be happier with her.

“[Jockey] Dwayne Dunn said that she was a little bit hot in the barriers, which was normal for her fresh up, and then when the gates opened a horse went under her neck.

“She got back to last but was very strong, he never moved on her and her sectionals were very strong late.”

Griante is now set to return on the weekend at Caulfield Racecourse on PB Lawrence Stakes Day in the $120,000 Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m), which attracted a bumper 23 nominations, and will carry 58kg with Steven Arnold booked for the ride.

From there she is set to return to the track on August 29 on Memsie Stakes Day and run in the $150,000 Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m), known this year as the William Hill Sprint Series Heat 1, before further spring plans are finalised.

“I believe that she is going the best that she has ever gone,” Brideoake said of Griante.

“We will go to the Regal Roller on Saturday then probably the Cockram Stakes in two weeks.”

Last year’s Cockram Stakes winner was the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Gregers who had run third behind Guelph in the previous year’s Thousand Guineas during the spring.

Brideoake is eager to test Griante in elite level company this time in, but is yet to confirm a Group 1 target for the mare.

“I will just pick and choose a little bit but ultimately she will take a shot at one of these Group 1 sprints through the spring,” he said.
