Kingdoms Tops Colin Stephen Quality 2015 Field

Third placed in last year’s The Metropolitan, Kingdoms is back heading towards the same Sydney Spring Racing Carnival Group 1 via a run in the 2015 Colin Stephen Quality at Rosehill Racecourse this weekend.

Last year Brian Smith’s Brisbane-trained High Chaparral gelding ran third to Opinion in the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick and he is in the mix for Saturday week’s feature again this year.

Currently rated a $41 chance in The Metropolitan futures odds at he will be out to further his claims of another run in the mile and a half classic with a good effort on Saturday as one of nine in the mix for the $125,000 Group 3 Dilmah Tea Colin Stephen Quality (2400m).

Tye Angland has the ride on Smith’s six-year-old who is yet to win from four previous Rosehill runs and who goes up from the 56.5kg he carried to a close fifth when beaten only one and a half lengths in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) last time out on September 12 to the 58kg top weight on Saturday.

Following Kingdoms in the Colin Stephen Quality field and weights this year is the John Thompson-trained Tremec (57.5kg), the Zabeel seven-year-old to get the inside run from barrier one.

He drew the same gate last start however and finished a failed 14th beating home no rivals when defeated over 25 lengths in the Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.

That was his second dead last finish from as many starts this time in too after a 16th in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), Tremec’s latest win being back in early April on a Heavy track in the Group 2 Chairman’s Handicap (2600m) at Randwick.

Coming off far better lead-up form is the Gai Waterhouse-trained import King Kinshasa who won his Australian race debut at Hawkesbury on August 29 over 1800m before a credible fourth beaten under a length by Silverball in the Kingston Town Stakes.

Stablemate Bohemian Lily, a $26 shot in the all-in The Metropolitan betting markets, also looks set to return to form third-up in the same race, Tim Clark aboard the daughter of O’Reilly in gate four.

Four-year-old Bohemian Lily races at the track for the first time and can improve on a Hill Stakes ninth when she goes up in distance and gets the firmer ground this weekend.

Another mare to watch is Peter Moody’s flying Testa Rossa four-year-old Amelie’s Star who has won her past three on the trot including her latest on September 9 over the 2400m at Warwick Farm by nearly eight lengths.

Other notable Colin Stephen Quality hopefuls this season include the Kris Lees-trained Newcastle Gold Cup third placegetter from last Friday over 2300m Rio Perdido and Chris Waller’s Choisir seven-year-old Reigning.
