Dear Demi will wear the #1 saddle cloth in Saturday’s Coolmore Classic at Rosehill and at the $21 odds she currently sits at she has to be seen as overs in the betting. View our preview of Dear Demi’s chances in the Coolmore Classic 2015.
Settled close to the speed in her return race, the G3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m), from where she stuck on well to run third behind Danesiri and Cosmic Endeavour, last week’s winner of the G1 Canterbury Stakes.
Ran eleventh (3.9 lengths) in this race last year after a similar first up effort but was caught back and wide in a race dominated by those on speed.
Her second up record suggests that effort was an exception to the rule but will have to be at the very top of her game to overcome another poor draw and 58kgs.
