Gold Symphony Scratched from 2015 Golden Rose Field

An elevated temperature has bought the end to trainer Peter Moody’s bid at a maiden Golden Rose win with his in-form three-year-old Gold Symphony scratched from Saturday’s Rosehill Gardens feature.

There are now only eight horses in the mix for this year’s $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), Moody’s Reward For Effort colt Gold Symphony paying $21 through as one of the genuine outsiders in betting at the time of his withdrawal from the field and markets.

The consistent galloper has so far won three of his four starts including both runs this time in at Caulfield taking out the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) – Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes (1200m) double in August.

He had made the trip from Melbourne to Sydney as the sole Victorian-trained runner in the Golden Rose Stakes field and was drawn the inside alley meaning the eight remaining runners all come in one gate for Saturday’s clash.

The updated Golden Rose odds on Rosehill Race 6 (3:45pm) for Saturday afternoon are led by the John O’Shea-trained Exosphere ($3) and the firming JJ Atkins winner Press Statement ($3.20) representing Chris Waller – the duo having run the quinella in the Group 2 The Run To The Rose last time out.

The Run To The Rose has produced the past three Golden Rose Stakes winners including Hallowed Crown who completed the double last spring.

The other single figure hope in Golden Rose betting this weekend is the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Speak Fondly ($4.40) who the punters have come for since the confirmation the Hong Kong-based jockey Brett Prebble is over for the ride.

The daughter of Northern Meteor has won her past two on the trot beating home fields of fellow fillies in both the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) at Randwick this time in.

She also won the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill back in mid-March and will jump from barrier three this weekend, the last Golden Rose winner to salute from gate three being Manawanui (2011).

Only two fillies have beaten home the boys in the Golden Rose Stakes in the past 15 years with Dandify (2000) and Forensics (2008) giving Speak Fondly a hoodoo to overcome as Waterhouse shoots for her first win in the race.
