Crown Oaks 2015 Aim for Guineas Filly Payroll

Richard Laming’s Thousand Guineas nominated filly Payroll could press onto Flemington this Melbourne Cup Carnival and stepped right up in distance for a shot at the 2015 Crown Oaks this spring.

The three-year-old daughter of Not A Single Doubt has to date had four runs for a single win on debut at Sale over 1206m back in March.

Since then she has raced in a hat-trick of black-type races across three states, her best result being a second to Black Vanquish in the Listed Redoute’s Choice Stakes (1200m) in early May.

Her latest run saw her travel to Doomben in Brisbane where she failed to fire and ran 13th to Look To The Stars in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m).

The Clyde-based Laming has Payroll nominated for a return this weekend in Moonee Valley’s $120,000 Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) on Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes Day, a race for three-year-old fillies that has attracted a bumper 26 nominations.

Laming has since confirmed to Racing Victoria however that he won’t be accepting for his filly, instead saving her for a first-up run at Flemington Saturday week on Makybe Diva Stakes Day in the $120,000 Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m).

From there she could be tested over a mile on October 10 in the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse after a lead-up run in the $200,000 Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) on September 26.

Payroll worked alongside stablemate Refectory over 1000m at Moonee Valley on Tuesday morning and impressed Laming with her slick gallop that included a final 400m sectional in 24.33 seconds.

Currently in the pre-field Thousand Guineas odds, which are led by Peter Moody’s Group 1 winner Pasadena Girl ($7) who kicks off her spring in the Atlantic Jewel Stakes.

Payroll meanwhile is further down the markets at $51, a price that will improve should she win her next start.

After the Thousand Guineas all going well and connections could keep her going for a charge at the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) on the first Thursday in November.

“We’ll probably keep her for Flemington and the 1100m fillies’ race on Saturday week, which is then two weeks into the Thousand Guineas Prelude,” Laming said.

“The Thousand Guineas is the target at this stage so we’ll head that way but I’ve got the Oaks in the back of my mind.

“She’s such a natural, big striding filly and I think she’ll definitely get the mile but there’s just something there that indicates that she might get a trip.

“She’s come back bigger and stronger, she didn’t have a hard preparation and (jockey) Dwayne (Dunn) said she felt terrific and she didn’t really get out of second gear today.”
