Al Aneed Continues Road to 2013 Stradbroke Handicap – Fred Best Classic

Mick Price’s talented colt Al Aneed can further press his claims ahead of the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap when he lines up in the Group 3 2013 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben on Saturday.

The More Than Ready three-year-old signalled his potential for a big winter campaign when running on strongly for second behind Academus in the Gold Coast Guineas.

Al Aneed worked at Doomben this morning in preparation for this weekend’s three-year-old sprint and Price was pleased with his efforts.

“His work suggested he’d handle the heavy and the trip away seems to have cooled his colty brain down,” Price told AAP.

“He’s trained on, he’s thrived.”

Larry Cassidy took the ride in the Gold Coast Guineas and remains on for his second-up test.

To taste success this weekend the progressive three-year-old will have to defeat Gold Coast Guineas winner Academus and last year’s two-year-old winter star Sizzling.

The Gold Coast Guineas was Academus’ first start since November but he picked up where he left off after winning the WA Guineas in Perth.

Sizzling, one of Queensland’s top gallopers, had little luck throughout the Gold Coast Guineas when fifth and is being set for the Stradbroke.

The Kelso Wood-trained colt has won six of 14 starts and was a shining light in 2012.

A son of Snitzel, Sizzling went through his two-year-old winter campaign unbeaten which included winning the Group 1 TJ Smith and the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

Other horses nominated for the Fred Best Classic include Magic Millions Guineas winner Saluter and Darley’s Complicate.
