Kimberley Star Narrowly Leads Tea Rose Stakes 2015 Betting

Gai Waterhouse’s consistent up-and-comer Kimberley Star is narrow favourite in a wide open 2015 Tea Rose Stakes betting market for the three-year-old fillies’ feature on George Main Stakes Day in Sydney this weekend.

The daughter of Star Witness has run top three in all but one of her nine runs to date, a lovely record she’ll be looking to add to on Saturday in the $175,000 Group 2 Coolmore Tea Rose Stakes (1400m).

Running as Randwick Race 5 (3:05pm), this year’s Tea Rose Stakes field features 14 hopefuls and Kimberley Star is drawn wide in barrier 10 for jockey Blake Shinn to overcome.

Despite the barrier the bookmakers at are taking no chances on the recent Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) runner-up and last start Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) third placegetter who currently pays $4.80 to win on the weekend.

Four of her rivals follow closely in the markets including a trio of $5.50 second picks with Ottoman, early firmer Perignon and Flamboyant Lass.

James McDonald stays aboard John O’Shea’s Exceed And Excel filly Ottoman who is a Group 3 winner at the track and is second-up after returning with a nice third in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) on September 5.

She is midfield in barrier seven while the Gerald Ryan-trained marker mover Perignon has a gun gate three draw with Hugh Bowman in the saddle second-up in the set weights clash.

Runner-up to Speak Fondly in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill in mid-March, Ryan’s daughter of Snitzel was beaten by the same filly in the Furious Stakes when a distant second crossing nearly three lengths away.

Flamboyant Lass has a wide barrier 11 draw to overcome, Waterhouse’s other top fancy in the Tea Rose searching for back-to-back wins after a big 3.3 length victory in easier company over 1000m at Warwick Farm late last month.

Waterhouse also prepares the returning Sempre Libera ($7) who Josh Parr rides from barrier two for the nicely-bred Medaglia D’Oro filly’s first run since a fifth to Blueberry Hill in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes (1200m) at Doomben back in May.

Outside of the hopes under double figures are a number of other class fillies at juicer odds to win the 2015 Flight Stakes lead-up this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival including lightly raced $15 fancies Pearls and Sofia Rosa drawn in barriers eight and five respectively.

The O’Shea-trained Pearls won at Gosford on debut in mid-August before a second at Canterbury over 1200m at the start of September, Saturday a real test for the daughter of Exceed And Excel.

Sofia Rosa also has just her third career start in the Tea Rose Stakes, the New Zealand raider prepared at Cambridge by Stephen Marsh with two runs back home leading up to her Australian debut including a 1200m win on August 29 from a wide barrier 13 of 16 draw.
