The Chris Waller trained mares are two of the eleven entries for the fillies and mares Group 2 feature this weekend with the Australian Turf Club extending nominations until 11am on Tuesday September 22, 2015

Waller will also nominate Catkins for the Group 1 $400,000 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday but said that the grey mare will probably stay in Sydney to run against the fillies and mares.

“We will also nominate Catkins (for the Sir Rupert Clarke) and see what weight she gets,” Waller told AAP.

“But she is more likely to run in the Golden Pendant at Rosehill.”

Catkins and Winx both resumed from a spell for a win and progress to the 1400m of the Golden Pendant with high fitness levels.

Crowd favourite Catkins was able to run down the Gai Waterhouse trained Echo Gal and the odds on favourite Bounding when she won the Group 3 $125,000 Irresistible Pools Sheraco Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on September 12.

While Queensland Oaks winner Winx continued on from where she left off in the Winter with a last to first win in the Group 2 $200,000 Theo Marks Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on the same day.

Waterhouse has also nominated two mares for the Golden Pendant, Queen Of The Turf winner Amanpour and new stable acquisition Arabian Gold.

Amanpour was having her first run back after winning the Group 1 $1m Cellarbrations Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick during the Sydney Autumn Carnival when eleventh to Winx in the Theo Marks.

Arabian Gold also has had one run back for the Spring and at her first outing for the Waterhouse stable ran fourth as favourite to Hooked in the Group 2 $175,000 Tattersalls Club Tramway Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on September 5.

Peter Moody has nominated Abidewithme for the Golden Pendant after the well performed former Kiwi trained mare scored first up for the leading Caulfield stable in the $80,000 Cape Grim Beef Plate (1400m) at Caulfield.

Consistent front running mare Two Blue will be given her chance at Group 2 level after finishing second to the Waller trained She’s Clean in the Group 3 $125,000 Suez Tibbie Stakes (1400m) at Newcastle last Friday.

The Kristen Buchanan trained mare has been a good money spinner for the stable, recording one win and five seconds from her last seven starts.

Other mares in the first round of nominations for the Golden Pendant are Berry Delicious and Slightly Sweet from the Jason Coyle stable, the Ron Quinton trained Peeping, Matthew Smith’s Royal Adventure and Vergara from the Anthony Cummings stable.
