can justify high praise in Golden Rose Stakes
The James Cummings trained colt Kementari is regarded
as one of the leading two-year-olds in training this
season and he has the opportunity to win the first
Group One of his career in the Golden Rose Stakes
next month when he steps up in class at Rosehill Racecourse
in Sydney where he looks a good bet to come out on

If you are having a punt on the leading two-year-old
race or any other action from Australia, including
daily meetings such as Scone, then Kementari is currently
top price of 8/1 on Oddchecker for the race and
that looks good value as once the final declarations
are in for the race, he is likely to be a lot shorter.
Kementari made his debut back in May at Canterbury
Park. He ran very green on his debut, but connections
were very pleased with his second-place finish behind
a Darren Beadman-trained horse named Malahat. On his
second outing at Randwick, the two-year-old was much
more professional and he showed his class as he settled
early and pulled away from the field in the closing
stages to record a victory by four lengths. His owners
will already be planning some of the leading races
for his age category at the back end of 2017, while
they may also be looking to tackle some of the biggest
in Europe for his three-year-old campaign.
One of the biggest dangers to Kementari's chances
in the Golden Rose is likely to come from Catchy who
is already a Group One winner after landing
the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield back in February.
After that success, the two-year-old went into the
Golden Slipper at Rosehill as one of the fancied runners,
however, he was very disappointing as he finished
last of 16 runners over the 1200m contest.
Invader is another Group One runner who is entered
at Rosehill and has to be respected. This colt's biggest
win so far
came at Randwick in the Inglis Sires' where he
got the better of Summer Passage in a close finish
to the 1400m race.
It is Kementari though who gets the preference in
this two-year-old race as he remains unexposed and,
if you believe the talk coming out of the yard, he
could be something special so the Golden Rose may
be the first step towards proving that superiority.
