Hunter Has Right Disposition for Australian Guineas 2015

A new stable acquisition for Mornington horseman Wez Hunter, Disposition is set to follow the traditional path into the 2015 Australian Guineas this Melbourne Festival of Racing as per the request of his owner Bob Peters.

Formerly prepared in Perth the three-year-old Reset gelding joined Hunter in Victoria this year after a terrible trip that saw his travel companion, Group 1 Railway Stakes winner Elite Belle pass away on the flight.

The pilot did a U-turn after the tragic event with Disposition making the trip the following day.

While Hunter only received one of the two Perth expats he was to take over the training of, he’s had to put the sad loss of a great mare behind him and focus on the new season campaign of Disposition.

A winner of four of his six starts to date back in WA, Disposition has already amassed over $400,000 in prize money.

He has enjoyed dual Listed wins at Ascot in the Belgravia Stakes and Fairetha Stakes and also two Group seconds.

The first was in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) when half a length off Rommel last November one run before his devastatingly close second behind the Chris Waller-trained Sydneysider Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) on December 6.

Disposition was super impressive that run, his first up over the distance, having to go forward from a wide barrier 13 draw before settling on the rails two off the leader.

He and the state’s premier hoop William Pike travelled well before he took the lead 200m out fighting back against the challenges to just go down by a nose on the line.

That’s the kind of guts and talent Hunter is hoping to see from the Peters Investments-owned youngster as he embarks on his maiden Melbourne campaign this autumn.

The $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington Racecourse on March 7 is the major target, Disposition one of 122 three-year-olds nominated for the classic this week.

Leading up to that Hunter will go via the races the horse’s owner wants him to with the $150,000 Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on February 21 his likely first-up assignment.

“He’s settle din really well,” Hunter told TVN on Thursday morning.

“Bob’s keen to go into the CS Hayes and onto the Australian Guineas.”

Hunter said the horse was pretty forward already and so will have a trial next week before kicking things off.

“He’ll have a trial next week but he’s pretty forward so he’s not going to take a lot,” he said.

“He’s just a racehorse. He’s not much to look at but he’s just a nice package.”

Our preferred online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au is set to open futures Australian Cup betting markets shortly with Peter & Paul Snowden’s Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win the likely favourite.

Based on what he has shown in Perth though Disposition shouldn’t be far off the top fancy in the all-in Australian Cup odds.
