The 2017 Tattersall’s Tiara Form Guide is essential reading for racing fans and punters ahead of the feature race at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane on Saturday afternoon.

Some of the Brisbane Winter Carnival’s best fillies and mares have been confirmed in a capacity Tattersall’s Tiara field, however we have analysed each horse in detail, in order to help you find the race winner.

Stradbroke Handicap runner-up In Her Time is set to start race favourite in the 2017 Tattersall’s Tiara, but is sure to face plenty of resistance from the likes of Prompt Response and Bonnie O’Reilly.


Madotti has yet to find peak condition this time, but is more than up to the class of the Tattersall’s Tiara at her best form. Saddled by in-form trainer Matt Dunn, the Falvelon mare produced several outstanding results through a recent summer campaign, including a career-best win in the Magic Millions Quality (1300m). Last seen finishing a lacklustre tenth in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1350m), it would take a huge effort and steep turn in form for Madotti to be crowned the Tattersall’s Tiara winner.

Danish Twist

Danish Twist has produced several smart performances and results between disappointing runs this time, but she is another mare who is capable amongst this company if she produces her best on Tattersall’s Tiara Day. A multiple stakes winner last autumn and winter, the Dane Shadow mare resumed this year for a credible fourth in the Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m) in early February and while failing to beat a runner home in the Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m), stormed home to finish an agonizingly-close third in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) most notably on March 11th. Sure to have taken plenty of benefit from her first-up run for seventh in the Dane Ripper Stakes, Danish Twist will be partnered by young hoop Koby Jennings.

In Her Time

In Her Time flew home to finish a close second in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) a fortnight ago and is undoubtedly the mare to beat in the Tattersall’s Tiara field. Winner of both the Breeders’ Classic and Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) in February, the Time Thief mare ran a credible fifth in the Coolmore Classic before returning from a freshen-up for fifth in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m) on May 13th. In Her Time is undoubtedly in career-best form and will be extremely tough to beat once more in the Tattersall’s Tiara.

Egyptian Symbol

One of two for trainer Bjorn Baker in the Tattersall’s Tiara field, Egyptian Symbol has produced a number of outstanding results through recent seasons, but will need to be at her best to win a maiden Group 1 on Saturday. Comfortably taking out the Wyong Magic Millions 3&4YO Guineas (1200m) in summer, the Stratum mare resumed from a freshen-up for fifth in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide on May 6th. Arriving in Brisbane for a close second in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1300m) three weeks later, Egyptian Symbol placed seventh in the Stradbroke Handicap at her most-recent appearance.

Tycoon Tara

Tycoon Tara is more than capable of winning a race like the Tattersall’s Tiara on her day, but is another mare who will have to improve drastically to complete the feat on Saturday. A multiple black type winner through her outstanding spring campaign in 2016, the Written Tycoon mare has finished seventh in both the Group 1 Darley Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) and the Dane Ripper Stakes at her two most-recent starts, but does have the notable advantage of Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle on Saturday.

French Emotion

Plenty of hype has followed French Emotion’s racing career through recent seasons, but the mare has largely failed to live up to the billing and she will need to produce a career-best performance to go close in the Tattersall’s Tiara. Storming home to finish second behind I Am A Star in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) most notably in spring, the Snitzel mare finished second in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) and won the Vobis Gold Distaff (1400m) most notably in autumn and returned from a freshen-up to finish twelfth in the Dane Ripper Stakes a fortnight ago. Jockey Hugh Bowman is a huge boost to the mare’s chances and she is capable of a smart run at long odds.

Miss Cover Girl  

Miss Cover Girl stormed home to win the Tattersall’s Tiara in 2016, but the mare has not been at her best this time and faces a big task in defending her crown on Saturday. The daughter of Monashee Mountain resumed for a smart third in the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m), but has since failed to figure in either of the Glenlogan Park Stakes or the Listed Hinkler Handicap (1200m). Damian Browne will have plenty of options from a wide draw, but she will undoubtedly have to be close to the pace when the field straightens to be a winning chance.

Miss Gunpowder

Miss Gunpowder has found terrific form this time in and should be right in the finish of the Tattersall’s Tiara, if she continues on her recent trajectory. Completely luckless and blocked for a run in the final straight of the Robert Sangster Stakes, the Pendragon mare flew home to finish a close second in the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) before arriving in Brisbane for a smart win in the Hinkler Handicap. Drawn ideally in barrier 7, Miss Gunpowder will be partnered by Like Nolen.

Sold For Song

Sold For Song has performed out of her skin throughout her entire racing career and while she isn’t considered a leading contender in this Tattersall’s Tiara field, is more than capable of a tough and eye-catching performance. Fifth in the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) on May 6th, the Collate mare was caught in transit before running sixth in the Listed Bright Shadow Quality (1200m) and has since placed third in the Glenlogan Park Stakes and fourth in the Dane Ripper Stakes. Drawn ideally in barrier 5, Sold For Song is worth consideration as an each-way chance in Tattersall’s Tiara betting markets.

Bonny O’Reilly

Bonny O’Reilly has been outstanding for Bjorn Baker this time in and is not without a chance of being crowned the Tattersall’s Tiara winner on Saturday. Winning a pair of Sydney sprints upon resuming this time, Bonny O’Reilly made a successful transition to black type racing when a comfortable winner of the Listed Helen Coughlan Stakes (1200m) on June 3rd and was last seen running a handy third in the Dane Ripper Stakes. She will undoubtedly require early luck to find a position on pace from a wide draw, but she is sure to receive a great ride from Jason Collett.

Bidii Babe

Bidii Babe went amiss last time out and it is tough to see how she will far amongst this Tattersall’s Tiara field on Saturday afternoon. working to the line well to finish fourth in the Silk Stocking, the Not A Single Doubt mare flew home to beat several notable rivals in the Bright Shadow Quality, but failed to produce anything when thirteenth in the Dane Ripper Stakes. In-form hoop Jim Byrne will take the ride, however Bidii Babe probably faces too great a task this weekend.


Nancy has been more than capable of a top-line performance at black type level throughout her entire racing career and she should lay a good account for herself once more in the Tattersall’s Tiara. Second in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) on February 13th, Nancy progressed to fourth in the Group 3 Wenona Girl Quality (1200m) and third in the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m), before arriving in Queensland for second in the Silk Stocking. Last seen finishing seventh in the Hinkler Handicap, the Big Brown mare will be partnered by leading Queensland hoop Jeff Lloyd and is not without a chance.


Kinshachi was unlucky to be denied by stable mate Maternal in the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) last weekend and is primed for another big performance in the Tattersall’s Tiara. Posting five wins and a further seven minors through her fifteen career starts, the daughter of Commands has performed admirably amongst strong company throughout her entire 2017 campaign and could receive the run of the race from barrier 2 in Saturday’s feature.

Prompt Response

Prompt Response carries winning form over plenty of this Tattersall’s Tiara field into the feature race and should prove tough to beat in the race with only 55.5kgs in tow. Resuming this year for a close second in the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) during The Championships, the Beneteau filly ran fourth in the Group 3 JB Carr Stakes (1400m) and placed second in each of the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) and Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) prior to the Dane Ripper. Drawn ideally in barrier 8, Prompt Response will be partnered by Tommy Berry in the Tattersall’s Tiara.


While taking her position in the Tattersall’s Tiara with a month between runs, Eckstein carries winning form into the feature race and is certainly not without a chance here. Beating Winning Rupert to the line when third in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) in January, the I Am Invincible filly resumed for fourth in the Listed Denise’s Joy Quality (1100m) before taking out the Glenlogan Park Stakes (1300m) last time out. Eckstein is weighted well as a three-year-old and is primed for another big run.

Rare Occurrence

The final filly confirmed in the 2017 Tattersall’s Tiara field, Rare Occurrence will be partnered by in-form apprentice Tiffani Brooker, but will need plenty of luck and a big run to go close. A strong and consistent performer in a handful of minor Brisbane sprints this time in, the Star Witness filly made a competitive transition to black type company when third in the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.


Maternal held on to win the Gai Waterhouse Classic at Ipswich last weekend and is unlucky to have missed a place in the Tattersall’s Tiara field. Winner of a minor Doomben sprint over 1350m on Doomben 10,000 Day, the Street Cry mare failed to fire in the Helen Coughlan Stakes, but responded with her impressive black type run last weekend. Should she gain a start, she’ll need plenty of early luck from a wide and awkward barrier.


Savoureux’s form has been inconsistent at best this season and the mare faces a huge task on Saturday, should she gain a position in the starting Tattersall’s Tiara field. Fifth in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) most notably on April 8th, the Nadeem mare failed to fire in either of the Silk Stocking or the Green Options Racing BM95 (1200m) on May 27th.

Girl Sunday

Girl Sunday steps up sharply in grade on Saturday and is another mare would will need plenty of things to go her way, to be crowned the Tattersall’s Tiara winner. Eleventh in the Silk Stocking, the Encosta De Lago mare has since contested two races in Sydney for only fair results.

All Over Bosanova

All Over Bosanova is probably unlucky not to have made the Tattersall’s Tiara field and she is a genuine lightweight chance, should she break into the running contingent. The Court Command filly beat an excellent field to the line in the Daybreak Lover Stakes last time out, including Tactical Advantage.

My True Love

My True Love currently sits as fifth emergency for the Tattersall’s Tiara and probably won’t get a start in the feature race. The filly has returned to racing in excellent form this season and ran a pleasing second in the Dane Ripper Stakes last time out.
