August 28th, 2015

Chris Waller has been thrilled with the class displayed by Japonisme this time and the colt has remained clear $2.45 favourite in 2015 Run To The Rose betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Exosphere ($4.60) and Press Statement ($5).

Will Japonisme continue his undefeated run this time through the 2015 Run To The Rose or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Press Statement ($5)

The only Group 1 winner confirmed in the Run To The Rose field, Press Statement has been charged with overcoming a race-high 60kgs but is more than capable of saluting at great odds this weekend. Debuting with consecutive and commanding wins in a pair of Sydney minor sprints in autumn, the Hinchinbrook colt never appeared in doubt in his black type debut last time out on June 6th; producing a monumental turn of foot to take out the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m). Press Statement has been confirmed to be partnered by Tye Angland and is more than worth consideration for a Run To The Rose Stakes bet.

2nd

Exosphere ($4.60)

One of several leading three-year-old contenders for Godolphin Australia this season, Exosphere has trialled well in the lead-up to his racing return and is worth consideration for a 2015 Run To The Rose Stakes bet at current odds. Returning this year for success in the Valentines Day Maiden Plate (1000m) on February 14th, the Lonhro colt made a successful transition to black type racing when taking out the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) a fortnight later, but failed to fire in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) last time out.

3rd

Japonisme ($2.45)

Japonisme is yet to taste anything but success through four starts this time, but faces a pretty formed field in the 2015 Run To The Rose and will need to muster a career-best performance. Taking out three minor sprints, including the Tradie Magazine BM72 (1100m) by four lengths on August 1st, the Choisir gelding beat a good field to the line in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) a fortnight ago and will leave from the rails draw this weekend.
