Perry’s Prince in June Stakes Tilt

Newcastle trainer Paul Perry believes Prince Braeman has his hoof on the til and is ready to break his year long winless streak.

It has been over a year since Prince Braeman was able to salute the judge, but a last start third behind Jest Crewsin has Perry thinking the horse is ready to deliver.

“We probably took a bit of time with him this campaign and I thought his run the other day was good,” Perry said.

“He needed that and it should have improved him. He looks great, the horse.”

Prince Braeman will be looking to rediscover the form that saw him take out the listed Chief de Beers Handicap at Doomben last year during the winter carnival.

That day he was able to beat home proven stakes performers First Command, Black Prince and Cardinal Virtue, but since then it has been a lean run.

His best run in recent times, before the third behind Jest Crewsin in the Candana Handicap, was in the Cameron Handicap at Newcastle where he finished second behind Kenny’s World, beating home the likes of Chasm, Pinwheel and Star of Octagonal.

Prince Braeman, who will be ridden by apprentice Taylor Lovelock-Wiggins, is having his fifth start of his current campaign, but Perry does not believe that has taken the edge off the six year old gelding.

“I think he’s still fresh enough for Saturday and the 1100 should suit him,” Perry said.

“He’s way up to that class, he’s an honest horse and never runs a bad race.”

Perry also has Diva Dior racing at Randwick on Saturday.

Diva Dior is one win from one start and will line up in the Bates Bikes Handicap over 1200m.

“She’s a real nice little filly, I thought she’d be hard to beat when she won the other day.” Perry said.

“It was a good win, a soft win. We’ll know more about where she’s headed tomorrow but she’s always shown us something.

Diva Dior is a $6.00 second favourite in the first race of the day from Randwick, while Prince Braeman is $8.50 in what is a very open June Stakes market.
