The Vanity Ideal for Alaskan Rose

Mike Moroney has been thrilled with the form and classy displayed by Alaskan Rose since her first-up run this time and is confident the mare is up to the standard of the talented field confirmed for Saturday’s Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) at Flemington.

Alaskan Rose has produced a number of commendable effort through her short racing career since first appearing on course in August; posting two race wins from only five starts.

While failing to make anything of an impact when eleventh in the featured Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield in October, Moroney believes the daughter of Encosta De Lago is far-better positioned in the 2016 Autumn Carnival and is confident she is primed for a big performance in the 2016 The Vanity.

“We think she’s up to them, but in saying that you don’t really know until you try them,” Moroney told Racing Ahead.

“I think last time when we did try the better-class horses we weren’t quite right, but this time we are.

“It will be interesting to see where she measures up. It’s certainly going to be a tell-tale race for her tomorrow.”

Alaskan Rose jumped from the gates well in the Andrew Guy Plate (1100m) first-up on January 30th; receiving a good run in transit but fading momentarily in the final straight to finish sixth behind he likes of Heatherly.

Moroney is confident the step-up to 1400m coupled with her allocation of the ideal barrier 3 will play directly into Alaskan Rose’s strengths in The Vanity.

“At the 250m mark she was losing ground on them and looked as though she was going to be disappointing, but then she picked herself up and found the line nicely,” Moroney said.

“It just meant the 1100m was too sharp for her, but stepping up to the 1400m and a nice barrier draw should give her every chance I think.”

Alaskan Rose debuted to racing for consecutive wins in minor Melbourne sprints in August, but failed to handle the late pace when eighth in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) in her only other start prior to the Thousand Guineas.

Ladbrokes.com.au currently rates Alaskan Rose a $9 chance in 2016 The Vanity betting markets.
