Cummings Happy With Cluster for Caulfield Guineas 2013

They may be one of the outside chances in Saturday’s 2013 Caulfield Guineas but trainer Anthony Cummings is confident Cluster is in the right form to challenge the favourites in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival classic.

A 14-horse field of three-year-olds was accepted for this year’s $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1400m) today, one of which was Cummings’ Fastnet Rock colt Cluster.

Current Caulfield Guineas odds on that final field are led by the Peter Snowden-trained Long John and Tony Vasil’s Prince Harada racing for the first time since their fifth in the Golden Rose a month ago.

At the other end of the markets is one of the outside chances in Cluster who pays around $21 to score an upset Caulfield Guineas result.

Despite having had five starts to date Cluster remains a maiden, although they came close to breaking that status last start at Moonee Valley on September 27.

There they ran in the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) when stepping up to the mile for the first time, doing well to come within half a length of the winner Divine Calling to finish a brave third.

It was a much improved run from their eighth to Chris Waller’s Coolmore Stud Stakes favourite Zoustar, winner of the Roman Consul Stakes over the weekend in emphatic fashion, in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) when beaten only three and a half lengths.

Now Cummings is hoping they can improve again when racing at Caulfield Racecourse for the first time in the Guineas where they get another go at the 1600m this time at elite level.

“I’m really happy with Cluster, he has done everything right since his Moonee Valley and he will do a good piece of work at Caulfield trackwork (this morning) to have him ready for the Guineas,” Cummings told The Daily Telegraph early Tuesday morning.

Cluster is Cummings’ sole Group 1 representative in Melbourne on Saturday, but in Sydney he has another shot at snaring a Group 1 trophy with Drago to run in the $400,000 Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick.

There’s a chance he could also back-up his Lucky Owners colt Thunder Fantasy in the race after their brave fifth to Spring Champion fancy Rock Hero in the Listed Dulcify Quality Handicap (1600m) over the weekend.
