Horse Betting: Some Wealth from this Princess
Wealth Princess has missed a place just once in her career, and even more importantly, she is unbeaten second-up, which is where she is at in her campaign on Saturday.
Wealth Princess is no stranger to recording strong performances in Brisbane, and Brad Thompson believes she can repeat the dose on Saturday.
Now in the care of astute trainer Darren Weir, the six-year-old mare heads to Doomben to contest the Group Three Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m).
She has already been supported in early markets, off the back off a slashing first-up run when second in the Wangoom Handicap at Warrnambool on May 2.
The daughter of San Luis eased in betting on the slow track, and was brave when narrowly edged out by shrewd wet tracker Second Effort in that race.
Wealth Princess has been well-travelled since arriving in Australia this time two years ago from New Zealand.
From May 2010, she ran four times in the sunshine state, including a win in this race last year, along with an impressive close-up second to Melito at group one level in the Winter Stakes.
Lightly-raced, she has only been to the races on 12 occasions - mostly due to a tendon injury that sidelined her for nearly two years following the Winter Stakes.
She has missed a place just once in her career, and even more importantly, she is unbeaten second-up, which is where she is at in her campaign on Saturday.
Michael Walker, who rode her during her her 2010 Queensland campaign, will take the ride from the favourable barrier of number three.
