Overreach set to back up for a girls' day out in Sires

Gai Waterhouse is leaning towards backing up Golden Slipper winner Overreach in the Sires' Produce Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.

Waterhouse said Slipper third-placegetter Sweet Idea was also a chance of running, while Shadad and Florid Affair, a winner at Warwick Farm last week, were certain runners in a filly-led attack on the group 1 by the stable.

"It will be a girls' day out," Waterhouse said. "We won't make a final decision on Overreach and Sweet Idea until Wednesday, but they have both come through the Slipper really well.

"I don't mind backing them up and Overreach has just been too brilliant for them so far, so why not run her? I don't think the 1400 metres will be a problem for her and they all need to make a couple of lengths up on her."


Overreach gave Waterhouse her fifth Golden Slipper but it was jockey Tommy Berry's first, which was achieved with a great ride.

"Tommy did a wonderful job on her and it was great to see a young man achieve that," Waterhouse said. "He has been a good listener and is a very good judge of speed in a race. We have seen that on Overreach in her career so far and how he rode her on Saturday was outstanding, and I don't think anyone could have done a better job."

Berry is leading the Sydney jockeys' premiership with 51 wins and with Waterhouse's support he could add the riders' title to the four group 1 races he has won this year. "Tommy doesn't need my help. I think everyone knows what a great jockey he is and if they didn't, they just had to look to what he did on Saturday," she said.

Waterhouse will back up Tulloch Stakes runner-up Hippopus in Saturday's Australian Derby.

"Nash [Rawiller] will ride him and I think the step up to the Derby distance [2400m] will really suit him," Waterhouse said.

More Joyous will be nominated for the T.J.Smith but Waterhouse said a run was unlikely.
