Dunn Returns To The Kingdom Of Fife

There’s few more prized rides in Australia at the moment than that of My Kingdom Of Fife.

The English import is yet to be beaten from three runs in this country all of which have come at Group level.

Nash Rawiller was meant to be aboard his next start in the Doomben Cup but after getting suspended the mount has been handed back to Dwayne Dunn.

While Dunn isn’t glad that Rawiller was suspended as such, he makes hasn’t hesitated in the slightest to re-take the ride.

“Nothing is more disappointing than me getting the drag off him,” he said.

Dunn rode My Kingdom Of fife in his debut race in the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude.

He was a 150 to 1 hope going into the race but his blistering turn of foot astonished everyone in attendance.

Dunn was overlooked for his next two starts including the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes triumph and the Group 3 Hollindale Stakes on the Gold Coast.

He was clearly irritated by the snub but is chomping at the bit to again prove his worth to trainer Chris Waller, who according to Dunn, was caught off guard by his first up victory.

“When he had his first start and Chris put me on he said he’s just going through his paces, I think it surprised him that he got up and won,” he said.

Dunn says he always knew the horse was a much better chance than his odds suggested.

“He got half way around and started to travel up nicely, Glyn Schofield trialled him before me and said this is an above average horse, his trial was a lot better than it looked,’ he said.

The Doomben Cup though will be entirely different with My Kingdom Of Fife to start as a favourite with plenty of expectations now on him.

“The distance is ideal for him and obviously a lot of the big guns have probably been up to their top but he’s on the way up and looks very hard to beat,” he said.

It’s not the only big ride coming up for Dunn, but he’ll have to find his very best to grab a win on his others.

Count Encosta will line up in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap at Doomben tomorrow but struggles to deliver on the faith being showed to him.

“Every time he goes around you think next start, next start,’ he said.

“Horses with good pedigree deserve to be in these races and they can get in and put their hand up in the grand finals.”

Dunn also has a ride in the main event tomorrow, partnering No Evidence Needed in the Group 1 BTC Cup.

Coming up against Black Caviar she’s the extreme outsider of the field and while being realistic, Dunn isn’t about to give up just yet.

“I think very shortly she’ll be winning a Group 1 race,” he said.

He says being a part of the atmosphere in front of 20,000 at Doomben tomorrow will inspire him to have a red hot go.

“It’s great for us to be part of it, obviously there’s more and more pressure every time she races,” he said.

“It’d be great to be the one who causes the upset.”
