Super talented Gai Waterhouse-trained gelding is odds-on favourite to continue his unbeaten run this Saturday when he lines up in the Listed $150,000 2012 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m).
The son of More Than Ready has opened at $1.75 in the bookmaker.com.au market and will be out to extend his sizzling run of form to five consecutive victories.
Waterhouse stable jockey Nash Rawiller has ridden the three-year-old to his last two wins and he will again be in the saddle when he runs from barrier seven in Saturday’s feature event.
There is some rain forecast for Saturday but it shouldn’t worry the up-and-coming star who proved last start he can run in the wet when winning by nearly two lengths in the Listed South Pacific Classic.
Second on that day was Sacred Pins and the Chris Waller-trained gelding gets a chance to exact some revenge when running from two gates inside the favourite (5).
A winner of three of five starts, the son of Pins is second favourite to take top honours on Saturday and is currently paying $5.00.
John O’Shea-trained filly Bound To Blush ($7.50) is the only other runner in the 10-horse field to start under double figures and she comes into the race with good results on the board.
She has a promising early career record of three wins from five starts and was last seen running second in the Listed HB Carr Stakes at Randwick last weekend.
Providing value for the punters is promising Ad Valorem colt Uate who is paying $14.00 but needs dry conditions on Saturday or faces a likely scratching.
The winner of three of nine starts showed again last start that he struggles in wet conditions when he finished 10th in the Gosford Guineas on a slow track.
Named after the Newcastle Knights star winger, Uate showed glimpses of his early career form in a first-up effort in the Maurice McCarten Stakes when he finished second by half a head to Title.
He will run from barrier nine in what is the seventh race of the day at Hawkesbury this Saturday.
