The 2008 Tea Rose Stakes Replay:
The Group Two 2008 Tea Rose Stakes run over 1400m is on tomorrow Saturday the 20th of September at Rosehill, and with a relatively small field, it appears on paper to be a one horse race; with Samantha Miss a short $1.65 favourite.
HOWEVER… For the sake of tipping something different, or giving you something to throw in your multiples; I’m going to tout the chances of Bart Cummings trained INDIRECT. Now on form, Samantha Miss should take out the Tea Rose Stakes with relative ease; but there was something about Indirect’s last start in the 2008 Golden Rose Stakes, where he was unplaced behind Duporth. He was badly ridden by P Robl, boxed in on the fence in the home straight with nowhere to go. I could be wrong, but to me he looked as if had he had some space, he would have been right in it at the finish.
So yeah I’m by no mean tipping Indirect as a certainty, but I will certainly be having a few dollars on him to upstage Samantha Miss in the Tea Rose Stakes 2008.
