Her most recent result prior to Saturday’s race was a second placing behind Royal Descent in the Group 1 ATC Oaks.

Trainer Clarry Conners’ foreman, Dale Harris, was at the track to witness Dear Demi win the 2013 The Roses.

”She was nice and fresh after the ATC Oaks, where she copped a lot of criticism after being beaten so far,” he said.

”We thought her ability would get her through today and it has.”

Dear Demi was ridden by jockey Luke Nolen in the 2013 The Roses.

”Initially we asked Luke (Nolen) to try and be a bit positive out of the barriers, but he couldn’t,” Harris said.

“We reverted to plan B – ride for luck.

”Dear Demi pulled up enormous from the trial she had before coming north and has settled in really well here. Hopefully she can win again in a fortnight.”
