Jorda To Step Up in 2017 San Domenico Stakes

Godolphin head trainer James Cummings is looking for Golden Rose nominated filly Jorda to step up in maturity when she takes on the boys first-up in Saturday’s San Domenico Stakes 2017.

Nine three-year-olds remain in the mix for this year’s Group 3 $150,000 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) after the early scratching of the Lindsay Park-trained Tulip who will instead represent the stable at Moonee Valley in an easier assignment.

A single-figure fancy in the updated San Domenico Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, dominated by Blue Diamond placegetter Pariah ($2.30), Jorda ($6) now gets the rails run from barrier one with Tulip out.

Jockey Glyn Schofield rides the untapped daughter of Exceed And Excel who had just the one start as a juvenile when winning the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) on debut at Randwick last October.

She looked well behind her rivals in the mounting yard that day, as noted by then Godolphin trainer John O’Shea post-race, but raced far better than her condition suggested.

Jorda won a Randwick trial over 735m this July in her first public appearance of the year after the stable shelved an earlier Blue Diamond Stakes campaign during the autumn.

She trialled again at the track on August 8 running just over two length back eighth behind Dixie blossoms over 1000m.

Cummings is pleased with how the filly has progressed in recent weeks and is hoping she shows up first-up taking on the more experienced field in the San Domenico Stakes.

“As you’d expect in the San Domenico, some of the more promising sprinters are resuming, colts like Pariah, but if this little filly who has a big action, is able to be within striking distance on the turn, then I certainly think she can run well here,” Cummings told Racenet this week.

“She’s an exciting filly if she’s able to make that step up to maturity.”

Jorda could be in line for a big spring already holding a trio of Group 1 nominations including the $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 23.

All-in Golden Rose Stakes 2017 odds have Jorda listed as a $34 outsider, markets led by fellow Saturday rival Pariah along with Gerald Ryan’s Golden Slipper fourth placegetter Menari.

Cummings has tasted previous Golden Rose success having co-trained the 2014 winner Hallowed Crown in partnership with his late, great grandfather Bart Cummings.

Godolphin also have the filly nominated for both the Group 1 $2 million Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and the Group 1 $500,000 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield in Melbourne on October 14.

To back Jorda this weekend in Sydney at the right odds and for all the top early Group 1 race markets over the coming months head to Ladbrokes.com.au.
