Super Cool No Certainty for 2013 Australian Derby

Super Cool may have ran second to Fiveandahalfstar in the Group 1 Victoria Derby over 2500m at the Spring Carnival but trainer Mark Kavanagh is not yet convinced he is the right horse to contest the Group 1 2013 Australian Derby (2400m) at Randwick in April.

Super Cool

Mark Kavanagh thinks Super Cool could be more suited to middle-distance races rather than genuine staying trips

The gelding has returned to work ahead of the 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival and 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and while Kavanagh is yet to work out a plan, he believes he could be better suited to middle-distance races.

“I don’t know about the 2400 really. At the end of the day I know he ran second over 2500m…but I think he is probably more a mile or 2000m horse,” Kavnagh told Sky Sports Radio.

“I might very well be wrong, he might develop into a stayer. We’ll let him tell us.”

Kavanagh said it was still early in the youngster’s preparation but was not concerned by an uninspiring trial at Werribee this morning.

“He ran second last in a field of seven or eight…he always does that,” Kavanagh said.

“He wasn’t knocked round, he’s a lazy horse.”

Kavnagh is leaving his autumn options open with the son of Fastnet Rock who showed his ability when knocking off highly-rated New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel to win the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2000m).

The experienced trainer is happy to be proven wrong but his initial thoughts are that “class” got him home for second over the staying trip of 2500m in the Victoria Derby.

While Super Cool will be one of Kavnagh’s big players in the autumn, unbeaten mare Atlantic Jewel will play no part despite making good progress in her recovery from a tendon injury.

“She’s healed up enough to say that it’s worth giving her a rehabilitation preparation to see where it takes us,” Kavanagh said.
