Not since Denman ($2.30 fav) scored for Peter Snowden and Kerrin McEvoy in 2009 has a favourite saluted in the Golden Rose.
In fact, only one favourite in the past five years has managed to run a place.
That honour went to the Anthony Cummings-trained Smart Missile ($2.10) when runner-up behind Ron Leemon's Manawanui in 2011.
The other four favourites have disappointed.
In 2014 it was Peter Moody's filly Bring Me The Maid sent out at $3.50 but finished eighth behind Hallowed Crown.
Fast 'N' Rocking was $4.70 favourite in the 2013 edition but finished tenth behind Zoustar.
Punters rallied for filly Nechita in the 2012 Golden Rose but she followed a long line of failed fillies when sixth behind Epaulette as the $2.50 favourite.
Remember Masquerader? He was the $3.70 favourite in 2010 but finished seventh behind Toorak Toff.
Exosphere is currently $3.10 favourite for the 2015 Golden Rose with Sportsbet.
And if you're thinking Speak Fondly will roll the favourite, keep in mind that of the 29 fillies to contest the spring edition of the Golden Rose, only two have been placed.
