PRINCESS POSH READY FOR TIARA BID

PRINCESS POSH READY FOR TIARA BID

Princess Posh is reported to have done well since her late scratching from the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) and will make her fourth outing in Group 1 company on Saturday.

The Kris Lees-trained mare was considered a top lightweight hope in the Stradbroke after her second to The Bostonian in the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m), but she was an eleventh-hour scratching from the contest having been judged to be lame.

However, Princess Posh worked on the course proper between races at Doomben last Wednesday and pulled up in good order.

“She ran a smart time at Doomben and the vet went over her and gave a thumbs-up,” Lees’ Queensland manager Mel Eggleston said.

“She is bucking her brand off up here. Kris believes a month between runs won’t do her any harm.”
