2016 Belle Of The Turf Stakes Target for Just A Blur

Just A Blur could be tested back in Group company next month in Gosford’s Belle Of The Turf Stakes 2016 if the Canberra-based mare runs well in easier class at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday.

Prepared by mother and son trainers Barbara Joseph & Paul Jones, the five-year-old daughter of Dane Shadow was a dual acceptor on Saturday’s Sydney race card but will run in Race 4 – the $85,000 TAB More Than Just Winning Handicap (1500m).

She shoots for her maiden win at a track the mare has had three previous runs over and is on a short back-up after a luckless 11th of 13 runners at Randwick last weekend in a Benchmark 85 over a mile.

The other option last Saturday was the Group 2 Villiers Stakes at the same track and distance, and while Joseph has no regrets not testing her in that company she does wish she had kept the mare at home.

The fence wasn’t the place to be at the meeting and jockey Michael Cahill failed to get a clear run from barrier two aboard Just A Blur who eventually crossed 4.2 lengths off the winner Caped Crusader.

“I hated taking her home after that run,” Joseph told AAP.

“She is better than that. She was on the fence where she doesn’t like to be in the worst part of the track.

“The ground was shifty and she hates that.

“We did nominate for the Villiers but she would have been the first emergency so I was happy to go to the other race even though the horse she beat at Goulburn (Moral Victory) ran a great race (crossing 1.9 lengths away fourth).”

Just A Blur gets the chance to atone on Saturday with apprentice Koby Jennings taking over for Cahill in the saddle bringing her weight down from 61kg to 56kg in the Benchmark 77.

“Koby was my apprentice for two years when he came down from Darwin,” Joseph said.

“But when he couldn’t claim in the country everyone said it was time for him to go to the city.

“He’s a lovely kid and I’m hoping he can give me a Christmas present for old time’s sake.”

Odds at Ladbrokes.com.au for Rosehill Race 4 at 2:30pm (AEST) tomorrow are led by the Chris Waller-trained four-year-old Cauthen’s Power ($3) and market mover Mary Lou ($3.50) coming off a second to Caped Crusader from December 5.

Instructions to Jennings will be to get to the outside of the track where Just A Blur will hopefully get a much clearer run than last start.

“I hope the pace is on and she can do what she does best,” Joseph said.

Further down the markets at $15 is Just A Blur who could back-up on January 8 at Gosford Racecourse in the $125,000 Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m).

“We can look at the Belle of the Turf at Gosford next month,” Joseph said.

“That’s a Group Three and obviously we want to get her some black type.”
