Gai Waterhouse now prepares the five-year-old daughter of Bel Danoro who has been racing competitively for the Sydney-based Tulloch Lodge stable since her move there early last year.

A winner on debut back in New Zealand in February of 2013 she was Group 2 placed twice and Group 1 performed when fifth to Costa Viva in the Group 1 NZ Thousand Guineas (1600m) that year before transferring to Australia.

She debuted down under in March last year running a brave second to Zanbagh at Kembla Grange in the Group 3 Keith Nolan Stakes (1600m), but failed when last past the post crossing 15th to Rising Romance in that autumn’s Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m).

Returning with another first-up second in January this year she has since posted a summer win at Randwick over the mile and a number of other minor placings in non-black type company over the past few months.

This time in she has had two November runs at Rosehill when second to Typhoon Jolie over 1200m on a Heavy (9) track and third past the post behind subsequent Group 2 Villiers Stakes winner Happy Clapper over 1500m on a Good (3) last start.

Role Model did it tough from the outside barrier 13 of 13 draw in that November 28 run and will hopefully have an easier time this Saturday for her first Brisbane assignment.

She jumps from a gun gate two draw in the 14-starter field for Doomben’s $175,000 Listed Treasury Casino & Hotel Bernborough Handicap (1615m) with Boss taking over in the saddle.

There are five single-figure hopes in the latest Bernborough Handicap odds at, where punters can lock in Best Tote or SP + 20% on the race on Saturday, including $6 chance Role Model.

The Robert Heathcote-trained, Craig Williams-ridden Hopfgarten is the narrow $4.80 favourite ahead of his last start conqueror Traveston Girl ($5) who is out to complete the Brisbane Summer Racing Series Triple Crown coming off a winning Recognition Stakes – Brisbane Handicap double.

The Waterhouse team is hopeful of her mare’s chances in the strong summer sprint line-up with Role Model out to return to her former top performances as a filly.

“She is a well-bred mare and we are keen to get a black-type win beside her name,” stable representative Mark Newnham told AAP.

“She isn’t eligible for the Magic Millions and there aren’t that many black-type races around for mares over 1600 metres at the moment.”

Boss has a strong book of rides at Doomben on Saturday with other key mounts including $3.20 favourite Hudson County in the first who dons the blinkers here, last start Ipswich winner Venecia ($8) in the sixth, the Liam Birchley-trained Gun Case ($6) in race eight and Glacier Express ($13) in the last who shoots for three wins on the trot.
