Anthony Cummings expects three fillies to race in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill on Saturday, one of which is well put together.
Randwick’s trainer has a Champagne Stakes-winning talent girlfriend ready to defy history with a million-dollar feature for 3-year-olds.
No filly has won the Golden Rose since Forensics won the postponed race in 2008.
Cummings said, however, that the weight of the 2022 form is a strong indication that the filly will thrive in Golden Rose, which is typically foal-dominated.
It was Golden Slipper-Sires’ Produce Stakes double winner Fireburn running from behind after Goldolphin’s rising stars In Secret dashed in Group 2’s Run To The Rose.
“I think the filly (the one to beat) and James’ filly In Secret proved that point the other day,” Cummings said.
“Fireburn’s first run was good in her sectional.
“She’s Extreme also ran well, so I think it’s probably three people.
“The Golden Mile has had an impressive victory over the Ming Dynasty, but it hasn’t been the typical strong formline in recent years.
“Typically, they need more horses, so there seem to be three mares left to fill the standings.”
In Secret is a clear $2.70 TAB favorite for Golden Rose, Fireburn is $9 and She’s Extreme is a $10 trio outsider.
She’s Extreme showed different form than the other two fillies after a good run from the back of the field to finish third and 3.5 lengths away from North Star Lass in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m). passed the line.
“Her first up run was very good and she’s been doing it ever since,” Cummings said.
“She has done a great job, recovered very well from the gallop and is ready.
“A draw is kind to us, so obviously that helps a lot, which means we get a more competitive field position from the start, and from there the best horse wins.
“Hopefully that’s who we are.”
Tommy Berry continues partnership with She’s Extreme.
