Timeform Recap - Tatt's Tiara

Tycoon Tara has led all the way to claim victory in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1350m) at Doomben on Saturday, the final Group 1 of the carnival.

Returning with a midfield finish in the Group 2 Dane Ripper the start prior, Kerrin McEvoy had no issues in taking Tycoon Tara Horseform to the lead from barrier 3 and was able to control the race throughout.


Pinching a break at the top of the straight, the Peter and Paul Snowden trained runner did enough to hang on by a head over Prompt Response Horseform in second with In Her Time Horseform not far away in third.

The rising seven-year-old mare has really gone to another level since joining the Snowden stable and returned a Timeform figure of 113 on Saturday, her highest since running to 114 when runner up in the Tristarc Stakes last year (114).

The oldest mare to win this race in history, Tycoon Tara ran to the same Timeform figure as 2016 winner Miss Cover Girl, the lowest winning rating since La Sizeranne in 2006 when the race was a Group 2.

Whilst this was the first Group 1 win for the daughter of Written Tycoon, she has now claimed six black type victories and amassed just under $1.5 in prizemoney.

Team Snowden has now claimed four Group 1 wins this season with jockey Kerrin McEvoy enjoying his ninth Group 1 success of the season, his best year to date.

With Tycoon Tara nearing the ripe age of seven it is unclear what the future holds and with a Group 1 win under the belt now may head to the breading barn.

Of the beaten runners, Prompt Response was very good in second and also ran to a Timeform figure of 113, a new career peak and six pounds above her win in the Group 2 Dane Ripper.

With improvement still to come in her four-year-old season, the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained runner is certainly one to follow going forward.

In Her Time endured another luckless effort to finish third and ran to a Timeform figure of 110, seven pounds below her effort in the Stradbroke Handicap the start prior in what was a much tougher Group 1 assignment.

Religify

Religify Horseform has claimed his third listed win of the carnival with a terrific victory in the G.H. Mumm Quality (1615m), now having won three of his four starts this campaign, only failing on a heavy track at Eagle Farm.

Carrying 60.5kg, Hugh Bowman pushed forward to settle on the speed from the wide draw and proved too strong once again, winning by just under a length from Payroll Horseform in second with Man Of His Word Horseform not far away in third.

The Chris Waller-trained runner who has now won 13 of his 30 starts ran to a Timeform figure of 114, two pounds below his previous peak achieved when winning at Randwick earlier in the year.

Religify, who will now go for a spell ran four pounds above his previous win in the Wayne Wilson Plate and would expect him to now progress to some group races during the spring.

Previously called the Winning Edge Stakes, run over 1800m at Eagle Farm, it’s hard to really compare Religify to previous winners of the race but he certainly looks one to follow going into the spring in lower Group races.

Purning Passion

The final race of the day saw Burning Passion Horseform pick up his first black type success when proving too strong in the Group 3 W.J Healy Stakes (1200m).

Settling around midfield, Burning Passion made good ground along the rail on the turn, taking the lead inside the 300m to claim a half a length win over Irish Constabulary Horseform in second with Too Good To Refuse Horseform third.

Burning Passion returned a Timeform figure of 105, equal to his previous best achieved when winning at Rosehill in November of last year.

The James Cummings-trained runner has now won his last two starts and will be the final feature race winner for the stable before Cummings begins with Godolphin.

Burning Passion ran two pounds below 2016 winner Into The Red and well below 2015 winner Dothraki who ran to 114.

In what was only a modest Group 3 race, Burning Passion is the second lowest rated winner of the race since 2006, a race dominated by colts and geldings.

Of the beaten runners, Irish Constabulary returned to form in second and ran to a clear new career peak Timeform figure of 102 with Too Good To Refuse in third running to 100.

Deploy was certainly below his best in four running to 98, considerably below the 107 he ran to when winning the start prior.

Sky Racing Tattersall's Tiara FM , 1350m
Race Synopsis: After four unplaced runs this preparation, five-time Group winner Tycoon Tara returned to form to record her first Group One victory here. She began well from her good barrier (3) and then travelled along nicely, setting a reasonable tempo. She grabbed a break rounding the home turn and although tiring nearing the post, last to win well. The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained mare Prompt Response raced in eighth place, between runners in a packed field. Tommy Berry angled her for a run on straightening, getting a split at the 200m and she then came with a solid finish, just failing to overhaul the winner by a long head for second, looking a little unlucky. The favourite In Her Time was slowly away from her wide barrier (12) and was second last in the 16-horse field in the early stages before making a wide move from the 700m. She was then widest of all at the home turn, went to fourth at the 200m and then kept running on gamely for third, staging an excellent effort after a really difficult trip. Sold For Song was back in tenth place, on the rails, got along the inner at the home turn and battled on nicely on the rails for (1.8 lengths) fourth while French Emotion did well in running on (wide out) after being 12th at the home turn for (3.3 lengths) fifth.
