2015 Queensland Guineas On Horizon for Good Project

Top Sydney trainer Chris Waller found success at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday thanks to Good Project, who won the Tab Place Multi Handicap (1600m).

Good Project was firm favourite to win the mile race out of the six starters and the three-year-old gelding justified his favouritism, winning a head from Sam Kavanagh’s Invinzabeel. The pair were locked in a battle for first place while Ron Quinton’s I Am Impressed was two and a half lengths off in third place.

Hugh Bowman delivered the winning ride and had to settle back of the small field after a strong early tempo set by Invinzabeel.

It was a tough win for Good Project, who had to dig deep in the final stages to down Invinzabeel and Waller believes the gelding has showed he has what it takes to step up in class during the winter, suggesting the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) at Doomben Racecourse on June 6.

“There isn’t much on the radar at the moment for him at the moment and he is creeping up in the weights for the restricted races,” Waller told TVN.

“I’d imagine a race like the Queensland Guineas, something like that could be ideal for him.

“He has done a good job this campaign and deserves a break.”

Good Project has won just two of his twelve career starts but placed in a further seven, including his past six starts.

The colt began his campaign with a second last finish in a Benchmark 73 over 1400 metres at Royal Randwick before a fast finishing second in the Bill Gilmour Tennis Centre Plate (1350m) at Rosehill Gardens two weeks later. This was followed by a further three placings in the following months.

Good Project started his year with a runner-up finish in a Benchmark 70 on January 1. He was all the way back near the tail after jumping and pulled right to the outside some seven lengths off the leader at the turn. The colt did well to sweep up the middle of the track and get close on the line, just three-quarters of a length behind winner God’s In Him.

The colt will now head to the spelling paddock for a well-earned break before potentially travelling north to Queensland in the winter.
