Co-trainer Adrian Bott considers the Tulloch Lodge three year old Siege Of Quebec is well over the odds for the Group 2 $200,000 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

The lightly race Siege Of Quebec is marked at $11 for The Run To The Rose at Ladbrokes.com.au and he showed plenty of pace last start to lead the field into the straight before being run down by the Gerald Ryan trained Menari in the Listed $150,000 Smithfield RSL Club Rosebud (1100m) at Rosehill on August 12.

Menari is the $2.40 favourite for The Run To The Rose ahead of the Peter and Paul Snowden trained San Domenico Stakes winner Pariah is also well fancied in the betting at $3.60.

Bott naturally thinks that the first two colts in the betting are the ones to beat but he considered Siege Of Quebec’s run in the Rosebud was outstanding after running some quick mid-race sectional times.

“It showed the class the horse has. It was a high pressure race and he was entitled to put up the white flag but time and time again we’ve seen how tough he is,” Bott told Racing New South Wales News.

“Obviously Menari and Pariah are the ones to beat. They’ve had a little more experience under their belts than what we have but I don’t see why the huge discrepancy in the market.’’

“It was a huge effort in the Rosebud to drop back from 1400m to 1100m in a short amount of time.”

Siege Of Quebec’s second in the Rosebud was the Fastnet Rock colt’s first defeat from three starts after winning a 1250m two year old maiden on debut on the Beaumont track at Newcastle on June 27 followed by a win in a 1400m two year old Handicap at Rosehil on July 15.

Tim Clark has retained the ride on Siege Of Quebec who has drawn barrier five in The Run To The Rose field that has been reduced to ten runners following the early scratching of the Chris Waller trained Qiji Phoenix.

Another solid performance from Siege Of Quebec in The Run To The Rose will see the Bott and Gai Waterhouse trained colt take his place in the Group 1 $1m De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill on September 23 and will also see his price shorten up from his current quote of $26 at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Menari sits at the top of the Golden Rose market order at $5.50 just ahead of Pariah at $6.50 and The Run To The Rose result will certainly affect the Golden Rose market.
