Shooting To Win Doubtful for 2014 Caulfield Guineas

Current Ladbrokes.com.au $21 Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) odd Shooting To Win is unlikely to line up at the Caulfield race on October 11th, according to trainer Peter Snowden.

Snowden doesn’t believe the three-year-old is mentally ready for the trip to Melbourne, even if he can trump Scissor Kick in Saturday’s Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens, leaving the autumn racing season open as his time to shine.

Shooting To Win proved he can compete in the top race after a fast-finishing 1½ length third place in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) behind Hallowed Crown and Scissor Kick but Snowden thinks the colt still has some maturing to do, all-but ruling out the Guineas.

“I was very close to sending him down to Melbourne this week with Cluster to run in the Guineas Prelude and then on to the Guineas,” Snowden said to TVN.

“I was tempted and had to think long and hard about it.

“It has taken him a while to pick things up, to see him produce what he can at home on the race track and I thought going to Caulfield he might get lost.

“Therefore we decided to keep him here in Sydney. If he runs well on Saturday (in the Stan Fox Stakes) I would give it some thought.

“Just mentally I don’t think he is quite there yet, ability wise he works as good as Epaulette and all those good horses.

“I think in another six months he would be ready, maybe not just yet.”

The Stan Fox is set to include Scissor Kick, Scratch Me Lucky, Modoc, and Bachman – all of whom ran against Shooting To Win in the Golden Rose.

“He (Shooting To Win) looks in great order, the 1500m is a help to him as well, he has had a nice prep and produced a career best run last start but the way he has pulled up says it wasn’t his grand final,” Snowden said.
