The Clarry Connors trained mare will be aimed towards all the major feature races including the Group 1 $2.65m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield, the Group 1 $3m Sportingbet Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley and the Group 1 $6.2m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 5.

Dear Demi will line up in a star studded trial on Friday which includes Group 1 winners, the Guy Walter trained  Appearance and Chris Waller’s pair Beaten Up and Hawkspur.

Conners will then ship the Dehere mare to Melbourne to prepare for her Spring Carnival debut in the Group 2 $220,000 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) for mares at Flemington on September 7.

The Grand Slam winning jockey then missed out on the rides during the Brisbane Winter Carnival which saw her collect one win in the Group 3 $175,000 Hidden Dragon The Roses (2000m) at Doomben on May 18 for Luke Nolen.

    what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your content is not good, but suppose you added a title that grabbed a
    person’s attention? I mean Dear Demi to head straight to Melbourne for Spring Carnival – HorseRacing.com.au is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles
    to grab people to open the links. You might try adding a video or
    a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more
