Ryan Pleased With Dothraki Ahead of Queensland Guineas

Returning to the track in arguably career-best form this time in, trainer Gerald Ryan is understandably pleased with the results chalked up by talented colt Dothraki in 2014 so-far, and is confident of continued success in this weekend’s Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse.

Finishing third amongst classy competition in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben last time out, Ryan revealed Dothraki appeared somewhat fatigued when lining up for his fourth start this time in, but is confident he has returned to peak condition ahead of the Queensland Guineas.

“It has been his aim all the way along,” Ryan told Racing Ahead.

“The only negatives that I could have about his preparation this time in was that his first three runs were on heavy tracks and I think going into the Fred Best he might have been a little jaded.

“We have backed off him since, freshened him up and taken him to the beach a few times and he seems bright and well.

“I didn’t see him work Tuesday morning, but he worked at the Gold Coast and worked really well and this morning he just did a bit of pace work up the straight.

“He is back on a firm track, the last time he ran over 1400 he won on a firm track at Flemington and I am happy with him going into the race.

“I think that it is a very competitive race and there are a few chances in it and he is one of them.”

Contesting an impressive total of three race victories and a further six places over just 13 competitive appearances on track, Dothraki returned to racing with an impressive turn of foot to finish third in the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) on April 4th, and has continued to build in form and condition in finishing fifth in the well-contested Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m) on April 19th before holding on to win the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) prior to his appearance in the Fred Best.

Allocated the ideal inside barrier, Dothraki is currently sole occupant of the third line of betting for success in the 2014 Queensland Guineas, at particularly generous $7 odds.

A standout performer over the early Autumn Carnival, Hucklebuck is outright favourite to claim the Queensland Guineas at odds of $4.60, ahead of Havana ($5.50).
