Classy filly Tulip has held her spot at the top of the betting after being confirmed a starter in the $120,000 Johnnie Walker Plate (1200m) at The Valley on Saturday.

The Lindsay Park trained Tulip was also an acceptor in the Group 3 $150,000 TPG Telecom San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday but the Pierro filly won’t be making the trip to Sydney from Euroa, but instead will be heading to Melbourne.

“Tulip will run in Melbourne,” co-trainer David Hayes said.

“Her trial form has been exceptional putting a line through Formality and Catchy. I expect her to race well, she is a winner at the track and I think she will love the distance.”

Tulip sits at the top of the market order at Ladbrokes.com.au at $2.70 for the Johnnie Walker Plate and with Craig Williams in the saddle will now jump from barrier six in the field that has been reduced to seven runners with the scratching of her stablemate Madeenaty who will head to Sydney to run in the San Domenico Stakes.

Tulip is a two time winner from six race starts and earned a start in the Group 1 $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 18 with her win in the Group 3 $175,000 Chandon S Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill the week before.

A brave run in the Golden Slipper saw Tulip finish third behind She Will Reign and Frolic in the Golden Slipper before going on to run fifth to Invader in the Group 1 $1m Inglis Sires’ (1400m) at Randwick on April 1.

Tulip will be resuming in the Johnnie Walker Plate at The Valley and has the benefit of a recent 1000m barrier trial at Cranbourne when she ran second, sandwiched in between stablemates Formality and Catchy.

Formality resumed for a win in the Group 2 $200,000 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at Randwick last Saturday while Blue Diamond Stakes winner Catchy was narrowly beaten first up when second in the Group 3 $150,000 Quezette Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield last weekend.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more
    than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I think that what you published made a great deal of sense.

    But, think on this, what if you were to create a
    killer post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you
    added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Tulip to take her place in Johnnie Walker Plate – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda plain. You could glance
    at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write article titles to get people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
