Roomooz Moves Towards Thousand Guineas 2017

Tony McEvoy’s returning filly Roomooz kicks off her 2017 Thousand Guineas campaign this weekend at Moonee Valley in a star-studded race featuring the likes of Tulip and Limestone.

The daughter of Fastnet Rock is one of seven remaining hopefuls in the $120,000 Johnnie Walker Plate (1200m) that is also the spring starting point for the Lindsay Park-trained Golden Slipper placegetter Tulip.

Confirmed for the Melbourne feature after being withdrawn from Sydney’s Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) field, Tulip leads the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.80.

Further down the odds punters can find the McEvoy-trained Roomooz at a quote of $6 for her delayed three-year-old debut from barrier four with Luke Currie to ride.

“I was planning to run her in the Quezette [Stakes, last Saturday] and as Catchy was going there, I thought ‘do we need to?’” McEvoy told AAP this week.

“I’m so pleased we waited the extra week as the filly has really appreciated it.

“She’s ready to go.”

During her juvenile preparation Roomooz posted a win on debut at Morphettville on New Year’s Day before two credible Caulfield runs in February.

The first saw her finish fourth in the Blue Diamond Prelude behind Catchy, before she ran fifth behind the same gun Lindsay Park-trained filly in the Group 1 $1.5 million Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Beaten just over four lengths in the Group 1, Roomooz races for the first time since on Saturday tracking towards a return to Caulfield Racecourse on October 14 in the Group 1 $500,000 Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Futures Thousand Guineas odds online have Roomooz paying $21 with the Blue Diamond winner Catchy the current $9 top elect for the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day feature.

McEvoy has saddled up five fillies in the Thousand Guineas over the past 30 years without success, something he hopes to change with Roomooz this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The horseman also has a couple of genuine chances for the Group 1 $2 million Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on the same day with the undefeated Royal Symphony and the up-and-coming Azazel.

Royal Symphony is the $6 favourite in all-in Caulfield Guineas betting at race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au and will next be seen having a Flemington jump out on Friday morning.

The Domesday colt has won all three of his career starts to date, including a Flemington black-type over the mile by over four lengths last start in early July.

Stablemate Azazel meanwhile pays a more generous $34 in the futures Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas odds and has his next start at Moonee Valley on Saturday in the Listed $120,000 McKenzie Stakes (1200m).

Snitzel colt Azazel has saluted in two of his five starts so far including a first-up win over 1000m at Flemington on August 5, which McEvoy believes he has taken nice improvement from.

“His coat has come. He’s physically in better shape and he’s very positive about himself,” McEvoy said.

To back McEvoy’s Group 1 Guineas bound three-year-olds over the spring at the best prices head to Ladbrokes.com.au today.
