Trainer Guy Walter will stick to his plan and run stable star Streama in the Group 1 $350,000 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on September 21 after the mare went around in a Randwick barrier trial this morning.

Streama and stable mate Toydini finished second and third to the David Vandyke trained Arabian Gold and Walter was happy with both their efforts.

“Yes, I was happy with both of them and they will progress now as planned,” Walter told Racing Network.

Streama wasn’t pushed out, but made up ground in the straight, and did enough to keep her in prime condition heading towards  her next assignment in two weeks time.

While Toydini will probably run in the Group 3 $150,000 Cameron Handicap (1500m) at Newcastle on September 18.

Group 1 winner Streama was heavily backed at her first run from a spell when a nose second to the Kiwi Veyron in the Group 2 $175,000 Pro-Ride Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on August 24.

Walter had originally planned to run the Australian Oaks winner on Saturday in the Group 2 $175,000 Tattersall’s Club Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick but had a change of heart and will only give her one more run leading up to the Group 1 $500,000 The Star Epsom (1600m) at Randwick on October 5.

“We are happy enough with her, she is in very good shape despite the fact that it was a tough run first-up,” Walter said on Sky Racing Radio when he decided not to run in the Chelmsford.

“She came through it pretty well but the main aims are the George Main and the Epsom.

“She doesn’t need another run at this point, she has been up a long time and is very fit.”

Streama is currently on the third line of betting for the Epsom at $11 with the Gai Waterhouse trained Carlton House just behind the Chris Waller trained Sacred Falls at $9 and her stablemate Toydini at $9.50.

In the Autumn, Streama was beaten two and a half lengths when fourth to Sacred Falls in Randwick’s other glamour 1600m race, the Group 1 $2m BMW Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick.

The Stratum mare was then Group 1 placed twice at Eagle Farm during the Brisbane Winter Carnival in the $1.36m AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) and the $500,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m).
