Ottoman has been largely ignored heading into the 2015 Golden Slipper, but trainer John O’Shea believes that the talented filly can bounce back to her best in the Group 1 at Rosehill Gardens this afternoon.

Ottoman went to the top of Golden Slipper betting markets when she stormed home from the tail of the field to win the Place Multi Plate (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on December 20, but she has been unable to record a race win since she was given a brief stint in the spelling paddock.

The Exceed And Excel filly started the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on February 21 as favourite, but she died on her run late after doing plenty of work early and could finish no better than fourth.

She produced a better performance in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m), but she was unable to finish over the top of English in the final stages of the race and her Golden Slipper odds drifted substantially.

O’Shea told Sky Racing HQ that Ottoman has had absolutely no luck in her three race starts to date, but he believes that she is set to receive the run of the race from an inside draw and represents good value at her current lengthy quote.

“When you go through her runs she has had no luck at any stage,” O’Shea said.

“She got squeezed out at her first run, she got posted three deep in her second run and James had to go back a lot further than we would have liked the other day at Randwick, but it was essential that we had a positive run coming into the Slipper.

“It was a slowly run race and he basically had to let her slide along from the 650 and she made a long run and was still there at the death.

“Today she gets one out one back or one our two back and I can see her coming to a peak.

“She is going to get the best run she has had in a race this prep and I thought earlier in the week when they put up $50 it was ridiculous.

“She is going well.”

Ottoman is currently available at 2015 Golden Slipper odds of $34, while Vancouver ($3) remains a clear favourite from Exosphere ($4.20), Headwater ($12), Ready For Victory ($14), Furnaces ($15) and Haptic ($16).

    Everything composed made a great deal of sense. However, think about this, what if you wrote a catchier title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., but suppose you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write news headlines to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.|

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!
