While he is the first to concede that promising filly House Of Cartier faces a monstrous assignment at Ellerslie, coach Nigel Tiley isn’t moving in an opposite direction from the battle.
Fruitful in lady organization at her last begin, House Of Cartier will handle the major group when she has her spot in the Gr.2 Cambridge Stud Eight Carat Classic (1600m).
The little girl of various Group One champ Shez Sinsational made a tremendous impression when she sat three-wide before fueling to triumph over 1400m at Pukekohe, in a race where the frame has piled up well in the next weeks.
“She was entirely noteworthy on her home course and I see that the two ponies that completed in the placings have gone on and won since,” Tiley said.
“I’ve generally thought she had a pinch of class about her, in spite of the fact that I immovably trust she will be a greatly improved prospect in the fall.
“It’s a gigantic advance up on Boxing Day, however I think she merits her place in the field.”
Albeit attracted unadroitly hindrance ten in the 12-horse field, Tiley trusts figure rain could play into his hands.
“She will be a starter in spite of the wide draw,” he said.
“She was continually going to return toward the begin, as she isn’t the sort you can hustle along ahead of schedule, so in the event that we get the rain they are anticipating, being drawn somewhat more extensive may end up being to support us.
“There seems to be great speed in the race, so I will search for her to complete off pleasantly in the last stages.”
Securely through the race Tiley will ease up on the Alamosa filly as he looks towards her significant pre-winter objective, the Gr.1 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai New Zealand Oaks (2400m) at Trentham in March.
“She will require a break at some stage, so we may pop her out for a couple of days after Wednesday,” he said.
“Obviously, on the off chance that she turned out and won it serenely, we should seriously mull over the Royal Stakes (2000m) on New Year’s day, however that is extremely a longshot at this stage.
“I simply figure she will have such a great amount to offer in the harvest time that on the off chance that we can stay tolerant with her now, we will receive the rewards at that point.”
Tiley will likewise play a patient diversion with amazing adolescent Qiji Spirit who made a decent clench hand of his raceday make a big appearance when running second at Awapuni on Saturday.
“He’s not by any means a characteristic two-year-old, yet he had done as such well since his preliminary win at Avondale that I thought he was prepared to go to the races,” he said.
“It was a super exertion as he drew wide and got into an unbalanced position amid the race before completing it off extremely well at the business end.
“He got beaten by a really decent steed and ought to have taken a lot of advantage from the race and trek away.
“He is qualified for the Karaka Million, so we will get him home and perceive how he recuperates before choosing in the event that we endeavor to get him into the race.”
The Karaka Million 2YO (1200m) will be kept running at Ellerslie on January 26.
