2013 Grafton Guineas Chosen Target for Doomben Winner

A tight win at Doomben on Wednesday has earned the Scott Morrisey-trained Gold Coast youngster Chosen Talent a possible shot at stakes glory in the Grafton Guineas 2013 next month.

A progressive Choisir three-year-old, Chosen Talent scored their third career win at start number 10 this week when Luke Rolls rode them to a narrow victory in the $17,000 Ross Smith Class 3 Handicap (1350m) in Brisbane, just a short half head separating them and the runner-up Believe In Heart.

While they are still making their way through the ranks, Morrisey is hoping they can step up in class making the next move towards an eventual black type assignment which he had planned to hand down to them earlier.

The trainer blames unsuitable track conditions and his decision to run Chosen Talent, a horse he’s had a high opinion of since their winning debut at Eagle Farm last November, on said wet tracks for the gelding’s less than impressive record to date.

“He’s a horse I’ve got a lot of time for but he’s been stuffed around by wet tracks and me,” Morrisey said.

“I was looking at starting him in better races over the carnival and I sent him around here on a heavy track which he didn’t handle.

“It was the wrong thing to do. I should’ve scratched him and taken it with a grain of salt.”

That start was a first-up effort at Doomben on April 17 where they finished a well beaten seventh to the Graham Pollock-trained State Of Wealth failing to let down on the Heavy (9) course.

Morrisey is currently looking at the $50,000 Grafton Guineas over the mile in country New South Wales for Chosen Talent next up, the benchmark 75 handicap one of the key support races of Ramornie Handicap Day on Wednesday July 10 during the Clarence River Jockey Club’s prized Grafton Cup Carnival.
