2013 Australian Guineas All Too Hard for Super Cool

Mark Kavanagh will avoid a clash with star colt All Too Hard and bypass the Group 1 2013 Australian Guineas (1600m) with Victoria Derby runner-up Super Cool.

The Australian Guineas is the biggest three-year-old race at the 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival but Kavanagh will avoid the half-brother to Black Caviar and aim Super Cool at the Group 2 2013 Alister Clark Stakes.

”I don’t fancy taking on All Too Hard in the Guineas,” Kavanagh said.

The Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) will take place at Moonee Valley on March 18, a track and distance at which he achieved the biggest success of his early career.

The three-year-old gelding ended New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel’s unbeaten record when winning the Group 2 Mitchelton Wines Vase in October before finishing second to Fiveandahalfstar in the Derby.

A son of Fastnet Rock, Super Cool will resume against Fiveandahalfstar and eight other three-year-olds this weekend in the Group 2 2013 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

Kavanagh has ruled out a trip to Sydney this autumn and outlined his likely second-up task as the Group 2 2013 Autumn Classic (1800m) at Caulfield on February 23.

The well-regarded trainer is not expecting too much from Super Cool this weekend and is simply looking for a positive performance heading towards his other autumn targets.

”I don’t expect him to do a lot over 1400m and he will probably need to get up to 1800m next time before showing his best,” Kavanagh said.

The emerging stayer is an $8.50 chance at bookmaker.com.au for the Autumn Stakes with Darley colt Knoydart the $3.60 favourite ahead of Mick Kent’s exciting prospect High Shot ($4.40).
