Palazzo Pubblico Prepares for Tattersall’s Tiara Twist

Sydney horseman Matthew Smith has named fellow NSW visitor Danish Twist as the one for his hopeful Palazzo Pubblico to beat in Saturday’s Tattersall’s Tiara 2016.

Last time out Smith’s four-year-old daughter of Conatus travelled home to Randwick and ran sixth to the Kris Lees-trained Danish Twist in the Listed June Stakes (1100m).

Both mares are now among the 23 nominations taken on Monday for the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Queensland on Saturday.

In the June Stakes Palazzo Pubblico and her hoop Peter Wells did it tough from the outside alley 14 of 14, while the Lees-trained winner got a gun run from gate six.

That was four-year-old Dane Shadow mare Danish Twist’s fourth win on the trot and followed on from her good win at Scone in mid-May’s Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m).

She is back up to that distance again on Saturday in the Tattersall’s Tiara and currently pays $7.50 as the third favourite in all-in betting at

Palazzo Pubblico meanwhile is a $41 roughie in those same futures Tattersall’s Tiara odds to turn the tables on her last start conqueror and return to her previous winning form, which could be a tough ask according to her trainer.

“I think Danish Twist is a star in the making,” the Warwick Farm-based Smith told AAP.

Before the June Stakes defeat Palazzo Pubblico won first-up over 1100m at Rosehill in late April before Michael Cahill guided her to victory over Serenade in the Listed Bright Shadow Handicap (1200m) at Doomben on May 21.

She is back in Brisbane for the Tiara test, her first ever Group race assignment, and accomplished local hoop Cahill is back in the saddle for her 19th career start.

Palazzo Pubblico shoots for her seventh win and races over 1400m for just the second time.

Smith is using the race as a guide to where to place the mare next campaign during her spring bid.

“She has only raced at 1400 metres once before so we are taking a punt on the distance,” he said.

“We are on a seek-and-find-out mission with her but we want to have a go.”

That 1400m run was back in January last year when Palazzo Pubblico was prepared by Sam Kavanagh and saw her finish fourth to Mardi in the Rosehill assignment.

Azkadellia is the firm favourite to atone for her Stradbroke Handicap loss last time out and win the Tattersall’s Tiara on Saturday after a pleasing gallop on Tuesday morning.

The official Tattersall’s Tiara 2016 field and barriers are out on Wednesday so stay tuned.
