Street Smart Derryn Raids Golden Rose Field 2016

The sole Victorian visitor in the 2016 Golden Rose Stakes field this weekend in Sydney is the Lindsay Park-trained Derryn who co-trainer Tom Dabernig as described as being more “street smart” than his earlier runs.

A three-year-old son of Hinchinbrook, the nicely-bred colt is one of 14 final acceptors for Saturday’s $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Racecourse.

He is trained at Euroa by David & Ben Hayes in partnership with Dabernig and has had three runs to date.

Two back he won over 1000m at Caulfield in a two-years-old handicap in late July before making his three-year-old debut at Randwick on August 20.

Derryn lined-up in the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) and was far from disgraced crossing just a neck back for second to Divine Prophet in the Golden Rose lead-up.

“I think it [Saturday] will suit him, he has had the benefit of a race on the Sydney leg now and that should be beneficial,” Dabernig told Racing Victoria on Tuesday.

“We probably rode him a fraction close last start but this Saturday we can just let him find his rhythm and allow him to hit the line.

“We rode him quiet from the gate at Caulfield first-up, he has got a good turn of foot and I think third-up going in to the race, he is a little more street smart.”

The Team Hawkes-trained Up & Coming Stakes winner Divine Prophet is also engaged for a rematch in the Golden Rose on Saturday.

Jockey Tommy Berry retains the ride on Divine Prophet on the weekend from barrier 10 chasing the Up & Coming – Golden Rose double last achieved by Manawanui (2011).

Divine Prophet currently pays $4.80 in the latest Golden Rose Stakes odds at, while Derryn is at $13 to turn the tables on his last start conqueror.

In the Up & Coming Stakes Derryn was ridden by Tim Clark who stays aboard in Saturday’s Group 1 after his first Golden Rose winning ride.

Derryn jumps from a mid-field barrier seven draw, a barrier that hasn’t produced a Golden Rose Stakes winner in over 30 years.

Rival hoop Berry meanwhile is also disappointed with the barrier 10 draw of Divine Prophet, despite having ridden Epaulette (2012) from that exact gate for his victory in the race four years ago.

“It is not ideal, we would have liked to be a bit closer but now it looks like we might be spotting a few of the main chances a bit of a start,” Berry said.

“He was able to reel them in last start but this race is going to be much tougher than his first-up run.”

Omei Sword leads early Golden Rose betting at $3.50 for Chris Waller and Brazilian hoop Joao Moreira, the Silver Shadow Stakes winning filly looking to become the first female champ of the race since Forensics (2008).
