Oregon's Day's form impresses Price

Trainer Mick Price believes Oregon's Day is in with a good chance of winning a Group 1 race when she runs in Saturday's Doomben Cup.

Price has been boosted by the news that Darren Weir's Gailo Chop will not be running at the weekend, which should bolster Oregon's Day's chances of landing the spoils.

The mare is also coming off a last-start victory in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on 5th May, so understandably, hopes are high.

"The pleasing part about her is she's got that genuine distance in her between a mile and 2000 metres and that opens up a heap of options for her," Price said.

"The way she finished off the Hollindale was really pleasing. I think 2000 metres, around Doomben will be great for her and I think she'll be a live chance to win a Group One."

Oregon Day is 5/1 to win the Doomben Cup, with Ambitious 7/2 and Tom Melbourne 8/1.

Meanwhile, Secret Agenda will contest the Darley Goodwood at Morphettville and Price is again confident after she galloped well on Saturday morning under Dom Tourneur on the Morphettville Parks track.

Secret Agenda ran second to Shoals in the Robert Sangster Stakes at Morphettville on 5th May and has had no issues since then.

"She's trained on well since her Sangster run and will take her place in the Goodwood, no problem," Price said.

Elsewhere, Price will also run Miss Admiration in the Group 3 South Australian Fillies Classic (2500m) and She's So High in the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville.
