Blinkers for It’s A Dundeel in 2013 Randwick Guineas

New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel will wear blinkers for the first time in Saturday’s Group 1 2013 Randwick Guineas (1600m) at Warwick Farm in an effort to race closer to the speed.

The talented three-year-old has reeled off some stunning finishes to claim victory five times from eight starts but has always come from the back of the field.

The move was made with the Warwick Farm track in mind, as the small, tight-turning venue is difficult for backmarkers.

Trainer Murray Baker’s son Bjorn, who is overseeing his program at his Warwick Farm stable, said it wasn’t an unusual move.

He said Murray Baker had applied blinkers in the past to well-regarded gallopers Lion Tamer and Harris Tweed.

“It’s the first time for Dundeel and hopefully it makes him more tractable,” Baker told AAP.

“He gets too far out of his ground and he can’t do that at Warwick Farm.”

After a strong spring campaign that took place entirely in Australia, It’s A Dundeel produced an eye-catching run first-up to finish fourth to Pierro in the Hobartville Stakes.

There will be no Pierro to tackle on Saturday but the task remains difficult as to win he will have to overcome Hobartville Stakes runner-up Rebel Dane and Australian Guineas winner Ferlax.

The Gary Portell-trained Rebel Dane was only narrowly beaten by Pierro which was his first defeat in five starts.

Ferlax, trained by Jim Conlan at Mornington, came from the obscurity of victories at Benala and Sale to score a surprise victory in the $500,000 Australian Guineas on March 2.

A total of 16 horses have been nominated for the Randwick Guineas which is the only Group 1 race taking place this weekend.
