Sheer Talent On Trial for Sydney Campaign in 2013 Alister Clark Stakes

Mark Kavanagh-trained colt Sheer Talent can book a ticket into some of the autumn’s big three-year-old races with a strong performance in the Group 2 2013 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

Kavanagh is keen to take the three-year-old to Sydney for the Group 1 2013 Australian Derby next month but admits Friday night is a crucial step on the road to getting there.

“He is nominated for the big races in Sydney but, who knows, after Friday night I mightn’t be worrying about Sydney,” Kavanagh told News Limited.

Sheer Talent has already hinted that bigger things could be in store by winning the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes and running third in the Group 1 Australian Guineas.

Kavanagh takes confidence out of the Guineas run as he believes his charge had to do it the hard way, getting plenty of bad luck in running.

The Flemington trainer believes the Redoute’s Choice colt is on an upwards spiral and should take improvement out of the Guineas run but he does have one concern.

With just seven horses in the field, Kavanagh is worried the race could become a “tactical nightmare.”

“It just might turn into a walk, trot and canter,” he said.

Taking on Sheer Talent on the back of a huge Guineas run is Hvasstan.

The Peter Gelagotis-trained colt produced the run of the race to come from the back of the field and fly home for fourth.

Gelagotis is confident his charge will appreciate the rise in trip in what will be his final start before heading to Sydney to contest the Rosehill Guineas and the Australian Derby.

“The distance is right, the timing is right and our horse is right,” Gelagotis said.
