Waller Rates His Tea Rose Stakes 2016 Fillies

Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller is out to decide the Spring Racing Carnival paths of a trio of his smart fillies this weekend on the back of their 2016 Tea Rose Stakes run at Royal Randwick.

Last Saturday Waller confirmed plans to head towards the $500,000 Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on Epsom Handicap Day, October 1, with his High Chaparral filly Omei Sword after her brave second to Astern in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

“Omei Sword has already stepped up and said she is a Flight [Stakes] horse,” Waller told The Sydney Morning Herald.

He will now use Saturday’s $175,000 Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) as a guide to the 2016 Flight Stakes and potential $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) claims down in Melbourne on October 8 for three of his other fillies.

“You let them show you what they can do on the track,” Waller explained.

“The races are there for them but I never say, ‘this is my Oaks filly, this is a Guineas horse’.

“It was the same with Winx; we let her come through as a three-year-old and find her level.”

The Tea Rose Stakes field is down to 10 hopefuls after the early scratching of the James Cummings-trained Savvan (2), markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for which are led by the Waller-trained Foxplay ($3).

Waller will also saddle-up Awoke ($8.50) and Sezanne ($11).

Drawn in barrier three with Hugh Bowman aboard, Foxwedge filly Foxplay earned top spot in the Tea Rose Stakes odds after her smart 1.8 length first-up success in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.

She now chases the Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes double last achieved by Streama (2011).

“These fillies get their chance,” Waller said.

“Foxplay was good winning last time but I’m mindful she is a little, light filly.”

Early money is coming for stablemate Awoke in Tea Rose Stakes betting, the market mover out to atone for 11th when 14 lengths off Foxplay in the Furious Stakes.

“Awoke was a ‘forgive’ in the same race [as Foxplay], just put a line through that run, and she will race well,” Waller said of the daughter of Rip Van Winkle.

The outsider of his three Tea Rose runners, More Than Ready filly Sezanne sees her first stakes’ field on Saturday after back-to-back Canterbury wins in August.

“Sezanne steps up to this company, so we will find out more about her,” Waller said.

“After Saturday it will be clear about where they will go, it is very much one run at a time.”

Waller is yet to prepare a Flight Stakes winner, but prepared the Thousand Guineas champ Amicus (2014) two years ago.

Omei Sword is the $3 favourite in futures Thousand Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au despite the unlikelihood of her backing up on successive Saturdays off a Flight Stakes run at home.

Foxplay is at $13 for the Thousand Guineas, while Awoke and Sezanne can be found further down the markets at $31.

Back Waller’s fillies at the right price this weekend and over the coming weeks through Ladbrokes.com.au!
