Tsaritsa Likely 2016 Tattersall’s Tiara Starter

Premier Sydney horseman Chris Waller is likely to have just the one acceptor for the Tattersall’s Tiara 2016 on Saturday with his Queensland Guineas winning filly Tsaritsa.

On Monday Racing Queensland took 23 nominations for the Australian racing season’s final elite level, the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) running at Eagle Farm Racecourse this weekend.

Two come from the stables of the prolific Waller who won the weight-for-age feature for fillies and mares three years ago with Red Tracer (2013) and who leads the Group 1 training tally for the season with 15 winners.

He confirmed one of his two entries this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival, Telepathic, was unlikely to take on the Group 1 field after her ninth first-up behind the David Pfieffer-trained Cradle Me in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) a fortnight back.

“Telepathic is more likely to go to an 1800 metre race on the day,” Waller said, speaking of the $100,000 Listed Tattersall’s Open (1830m).

His classy Dane Shadow three-year-old Tsaritsa also ran on Stradbroke Handicap Day at the Eagle Farm track and caught the eye making it three wins on the trot with success in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m).

Waller said on Sunday he was awaiting a final call on her Tattersall’s Tiara acceptance based on the nominations, but he has since confirmed Jim Byrne for the ride in place of Joao Moreira.

“She galloped on Saturday and has shown she has come through her last race really well,” Waller said of the youngster.

The last filly to complete the Queensland Guineas – Tattersall’s Tiara double was Pear Tart (2012) and since then all subsequent winners of the latter came off a last start victory.

Azkadellia leads all-in Tattersall’s Tiara betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.50 to bounce back from her last start 10th as the beaten favourite in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

She represents last year’s winning horseman Ciaron Maher who completed the Stradbroke Handicap – Tiara double with Srikandi (2015) and Nicholas Hall has been announced to replace Damien Oliver in the saddle.

If successful, Azkadellia will be the third Tattersall’s Tiara favourite in as many years to complete the double joining Cosmic Endeavour (2014) and Srikandi 12 months ago.

Also coming out of this year’s all-female Queensland Guineas trifecta into the Tattersall’s Tiara field is the Kevin Kemp-trained third placegetter Sold For Song.

The Toowoomba-based Collate filly was beaten only 1.6 lengths by Tsaritsa in the Group 2 after a brave run from barrier 18 of 18.

Apprentice James Orman will continue his association on her this weekend in her toughest test to date, Sold For Song after her first win since the Listed Gold Edition Plate (1200m) at Doomben back in December.

“She’s a big chance to head to the Group One,” Kemp said of Sold For Song who was also nominated for the rescheduled $125,000 Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1400m) as a back-up on Tatt’s Tiara Day.
