Undefeadted three year old Rebel Dane proved today that he is ready to take on the big names during the rest of the Sydney Autumn Carnival with a sensational last to first win in the Group 2 $175,000 Royal Sovereign Stakes(1200m) at Rosehill.

Rebel Dane put in a remarkable performance to come from last after settling back further in the field than Jason Collett has intended.

“I had a couple of plans going into the race, plan A didn’t go to plan so plan B had to do,” Collet said.

“He tries hard, he’s quite unreal really, I don’t know if I’ve ridden horse like that. He really wants to win you know.”

“I felt confident at the furlong but Nathan’s horse seemed to kick back.”

Nathan Berry on Urquidez looked to have the Royal Sovereign in their keeping but Rebel Dane was able to gather them in right on the line to take his record to four from four.

Winning trainer Gary Portelli now has plenty of confidence as he heads towards some bigger goals and a possible clash with Gai Waterhouse’s super colt Pierro later in the Autumn.

“He might be alright eh,” Portelli said.

“Before the race we thought we would be outside the leader. To be back running last and have to come around the whole field and to do that, mate this might be the best one I’ve ever had, so fingers crossed.”

“There’s some big names to take on from here Pierro etc, I think today, the way he raced today, if things go to plan next time who knows.”

The Group 2 $200,000 Hobartville Stakes(1400m) at Rosehill on March 2 is the next logical step for Rebel Dane where he will meet some of the best three years in Sydney, including Pierro who will be kicking off his Autumn campaign.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

    Getting to the the basis of a problem starts with figuring out the the premise. While could seem ambigious but many hard times start from the premise, not the conclusion.

    Along with the whole thing which appears to be developing within this particular subject material, all your points of view are actually very exciting. Nonetheless, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It looks to me that your commentary are not totally justified and in actuality you are generally yourself not even wholly certain of your argument. In any case I did enjoy reading it.
