Shanghai Warrior Has 2013 Doncaster Mile Aim

Pat Hyland is hopeful talented gelding Shanghai Warrior can remain trouble free for a 2013 Autumn Racing Carnival preparation and is aiming him at the Group 1 2013 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick in April.

The four-year-old was on fire in the late winter and early spring with some big wins including in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap before a trachea problem saw him finish towards the back of the field in both the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality and the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Hyland has always had a big opinion of the son of Elvstroem and is confident he can return to the winner’s circle this campaign.

A winner of five of 11 starts, the exciting sprinter-miler will kick off his Doncaster campaign this Saturday in the Group 3 2013 Rubiton Stakes (1100m).

The Cranbourne trainer admitted Shanghai Warrior is not at 100 per cent for the first-up hit-out but is confident he can still run a big race.

“He’s not 100 per cent yet but he’s forward enough to go well,” Hyland told Racing Network.

Hyland said he hasn’t quite worked out the full autumn plan but outlined the Doncaster as the major goal.

Possible lead-up options include the Group 1 2013 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) and the Group 1 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m).

Shanghai Warrior occupies the second line of betting in the Rubiton Stakes with last-start winners Adebisi and Rescue Mission joint favourites at $3.

Queensland gelding Adebisi is coming off a strong win in the Listed Razor Sharp Handicap at Warwick Farm in December while Rescue Mission will be chasing back-to-back wins at Caulfield after a victory on January 26.
