2016 Thousand Guineas Hope Missrock “A Star”

Trainer Robbie Laing has described his Thousand Guineas 2016 bound filly Missrock as “a star” ahead of her return to racing as a three-year-old this time in.

The young daughter of Fastnet Rock has notably improved over her winter spell according to the Cranbourne-based Laing.

A beautifully bred daughter of Fastnet Rock, Missrock has won two of her four starts to date both in Black-Type company.

The first was a Caulfield success on debut last October in the Listed Debutant Stakes (1000m).

She was back in the winner’s stall first-up this April at Randwick in her first Sydney run during ‘The Championships’, taking out the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m).

Missrock did that not at peak fitness Laing told Racing Victoria this week and he can’t wait to see what she does this campaign in far better physical condition.

“She went into that run [the Percy Sykes Stakes] just months after fracturing her pelvis and she had a lot of wasted muscle over her hindquarters and now she’s built up again nearly back to normal,” he said.

Originally Missrock was scheduled to resume racing in the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield in mid-August, but Laing has been patient with the filly and delayed her first-up run.

He still has the same major aim in sight, a shot at a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival classic in the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse on October 8.

Laing has only had one previous Thousand Guineas starter, but is full of confidence in Missrock this season.

“She’s a star,” he said.

“Whatever she did in the autumn, she is lengths better.

“She’s nearly 16.2 [hands].

“She’s a whopping, big filly and she just seems to have improved so much it will take a good filly to beat her this time in.”

The current Thousand Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by the Chris Waller-trained Omei Sword who won the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) first-up in Sydney last Saturday.

Missrock looks good value then at $21 in pre-field Thousand Guineas betting.

The next round of 2016 Thousand Guineas acceptances close on September 6 followed be second declarations a fortnight later and the final field on October 4.
