Underrated mare Jen Rules has raced without the bookies respect this preparation but it’s done little to dent the confidence of trainer Paul Snowden ahead of Saturday’s Group 3 Daily Press Nivison (1200m) at Randwick.
The Snowdens’ daughter of Redoute’s Choice is chasing a well deserved stakes triumph third-up after racing consistently this preparation when placing in black type company at massive odds both starts.
As much as $81 was put up when markets opened when Jen Rules rattled home to finish within a length of Haut Brion Her first-up in the Group 2 Sheraco Stakes, with the latter going on to run fifth in last Saturday’s The Everest.

She then started as a $21 elect second-up when placing third behind the classy Subpoenaed and Emeralds, which won the Group 3 Angst Stakes at her next start.
All of her work at home before both runs told the Snowden, who trains with his dad Peter, to expect a strong showing and Saturday is be no different with Jen Rules rated an $8 chance with TAB.com.au.
“I can’t fault her,” Paul Snowden said.
“She has had an outstanding preparation albeit without winning.
“She has been going down to some good horses like Haut Brion Her first-up from a break.
“They have been solid performances and she has been going around at double figure odds every time she steps out.
“She has been going well at home so it’s no surprise to us to see her racing well.”
Jen Rules will be ridden by Sam Clipperton.
Snowden indicated a smash and grab trip to Melbourne for another stakes assignment at the back end of the spring could be on the cards for Jen Rules if she is to come through the Nivision.

The stable also have promising filly Mura Mura making her debut in the Forum Group Kirkham Plate (1000m).
She heads to the race with a trial victory under her belt which has seen her installed as the $3.80 favourite in the two-year-old sprint.
“She has trialled well but has drawn awkward so we will have to see how it plays out when they jump,” Snowden said.
“We will head to the races and see what we want to do with her after she runs but she is a nice natural talent.
“She has a good attitude and has never been a drama.
“I think she is a filly that is going to improve over time.”
The Snowdens finish the day with Bound To Win ($21) and Misteed ($41) both outside chances in the Southern Cross Benchmark 88 Handicap (1200m).
