British General Heads 2013 John Dillon Stakes Field

Dan O’Sullivan’s in-form gelding British General heads a 10-horse field for the Listed 2013 John Dillion Stakes (1400m) which will take place at Caulfield on Saturday.

The five-year-old is chasing a fourth consecutive win but will have to adapt to a new venue after being a dominant force at Flemington during the summer so far.

British General heads the field for the John Dillion Stakes 2013 at Caulfield

He will be chasing his second straight black-type success after winning the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes on January 12.

Out to exact revenge on British General is Dash For Viz who has finished runner-up in their past two match-ups.

The Robbie Griffiths-trained galloper is yet to win this preparation but has finished in the minor placings four times from seven starts.

Due to carry the topweight of 60kg is Heath Conners-trained mare Invest who will be having her first start since an unsuccessful Spring Carnival.

The four-year-old was a Group 1 winner last autumn in the Schweppes Oaks at Morphetville and also won the Group 3 Roses in Queensland but failed to measure up against the older horses in four unplaced spring starts.

Apart from British General, there is only one last-start winner in the field with Le Remas facing a step up in class after winning a mid-week handicap at Sandown-Hillside on January 16.

Peter Moody has entered four-year-old Group 2 winner Highly Recommended who like Invest has failed to rediscover the form showed during his three-year-old career.

The son of Fastnet Rock won the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes in March but in four starts in open company is yet to finish better than sixth.

Others in the John Dillon Stakes field include Chester Manifold Stakes third placegetter Under The Eiffel and Kane Harris-trained gelding Future Solution.
