Paul Snowden rates Denpurr, who debuts in Saturday’s Surf Meets The Turf Plate on the Kensington track, as one of the stable’s best juvenile fillies.
Snowden added that Denpurr, a daughter of Denman, a horse that won nine of his 12 starts, including the Golden Rose, under his father Peter’s care, held her own against stablemate Paceman in trackwork.
Paceman made a most impressive debut last week at Rosehill.
Snowden noted that Denpurr is a “balance up, run-on” athletic type of filly with a “good head and race sense” about her.
“I expect her to run well,” Snowden said.
“I think from (barrier) nine she will balance up mid field and she will be doing her best work late.”
Denpurr wasn’t extended in her public trial at Randwick on October 31 when third, about 0.7 lengths behind Right Of Way, which last Saturday finished second behind Paceman at Rosehill.
“She certainly hasn’t gone backwards since. She’s had a couple of pieces of work since then,” Snowden said.
“She worked with Paceman and held her own against him.”
Sportsbet.com.au has Denpurr an $8 chance in its market that has Godolphin’s Italy, a runner-up on debut behind Mine Two at Randwick, as the $2.80 favourite.
