Trainer Ben Smith has already pencilled in a Spring Carnival program for In Her Time who will step out as the favourite for the Group 1 $500,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1350m) at Doomben on Saturday.

The four year old mare has been installed the $3.30 top pick at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Group 1 for the fillies and mares on Saturday and Smith has his eyes set on some the Group 1 sprints over the 2017 Melbourne Spring Carnival.

“All going well she’ll kick off in the (Group 1) Manikato Stakes in Melbourne,” Smith told Racing Queensland News.

“It all depends on her where she goes after that but I’d love to run her down the straight at Flemington in the Darley Classic.”

The Group 1 $1m Manikato Stakes (1200m) is run at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate eve on October 27 while the Group 1 $1m Darley Classic (1200m) is run down the Flemington straight on the last day of the four day Melbourne Cup Carnival.

In Her Time has risen up through the ranks in quick fashion and after only thirteen starts is a two time Group 2 winner as well as running second to Impending in the Group 1 $1.5m Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben on June 10 at her latest outing.

“She’s only had 13 starts and is still new to the racing game,” Smith said.

“She had a couple of problems with cardiac arrhythmia early in her career but she’s over it now.

“She first got it in the (Group 2) Tea Rose at her second start when she ran a long last and then she got it a second time in her next preparation.

“I gave her a long spell and let her mature and there’s been no further problems.”

In Her Time burst onto the scene during the 2017 Sydney Autumn Carnival with a surprise win in the Group 2 $200,000 China Horse Club Breeders Classic (1200m) at Randwick on February 4 and then proved that to be no fluke with a win in the Group 2 $200,000 Ranvet Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill a fortnight later.

Smith then tested In Her Time at Group 1 level and she performed well to run fifth to Heaven’s Above in the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on March 11.

In Her Time has only had two runs in Brisbane and a month prior to running second in the Stradbroke Handicap ran a solid race to finish fifth to Redzel in the Group 1 $700,000 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10000 (1200m) at Doomben.

Josh Parr rode In Her Time in the Doomben 10,000 and gets the ride again in the Tattersall’s Tiara but will have to be at his best after the mare drew barrier sixteen in the original draw but will jump from gate thirteen in the final sixteen horse field if all the emergencies fail to gain a start.

“The barrier won’t worry her so long as she’s travelling,” Smith said.

“It’s not the end of the world. She jumped from 12 in the Stradbroke and she comes into 13 if the emergencies don’t run.”

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Prompt Response is on the second line of betting at $6.50 for the Tattersall’s Tiara ahead of Glenlogan Park Stakes winner Eckstein at $9.50.
