Guy Walter won’t be surprised if another sit-and-sprint race unfolds when Streama tries for more Princess Series success on Saturday.

Streama came out on top in a slowly-run Furious Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm and Walter is thinking there could be more of the same in the Group Two Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill.

“They’re the same fillies, basically,” Walter said.

“It’s possible (it will be another slowly run race). I don’t know who is going to lead.”

Walter said first thoughts were for Streama to be ridden quieter in the Furious, but with no speed on jockey Hugh Bowman made the right decision to park outside the leader Florentina.

“Things went her way last start through a brilliantly-judged ride from Hugh Bowman,” Walter said.

However, Walter said the Furious offered no real guide to how Streama would handle a distance rise in the final two Princess Series races – the Tea Rose and Group One Flight Stakes (1600m).

“One aspect with that race (the Furious) was that she didn’t get a chance to learn to settle because they went so slow,” Walter said.

Streama, to be ridden by Bowman again, came up with the rails draw when a final field of 11 was declared.

While there are some questions to be answered on Saturday, Walter couldn’t fault Streama’s work on the course proper at Warwick Farm on Tuesday, boosting is confidence the filly can claim her third stakes win in just seven starts.

“I think she’ll be hard to beat again,” the trainer said.

Silver Shadow Stakes winner Pane In The Glass, who was unsuited by the slow tempo in the Furious, is among a competitive Tea Rose field which includes Elite Falls, Anise, Florentina, Shared Reflections and New Zealand filly Dowager Queen.

Walter will also be represented in the Group Three Gloaming Stakes (1800m) by Doctor Doom, who jumps in grade after winning easily over 1600m at Goulburn.

“He won well at Randwick (in a maiden three starts ago) then didn’t have much luck in his next start at Rosehill,” Walter said.

“Last start he won very nicely in a small field at Goulburn and gave me the impression that he likes to bowl along.

“Obviously it’s a big rise in class on Saturday but I’m confident that he can run well.”

Walter’s Rosehill team is rounded out by Hood, who resumes in the Jim Beam Handicap over 1200m with Bowman to ride.
