Chivalry Ramps Up 2015 Australian Guineas Preparation

Mark Kavanagh’s Chivalry was one of a handful of talented gallopers that returned to the racetrack on Friday morning, enjoying a jumpout at Flemington Racecourse.

The three-year-old colt narrowly won his 800 metre trial against a talented field that included stable mate Magicool and the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained pair Afleet Esprit and Girl Guide.

“That was a strong trial and I thought that he went pretty well, he travelled wide and finished off strongly,” Kavanagh told Racing Victoria.

“He’s matured a lot and really done well during his break and he’s a much more athletic horse this time in work.”

Chivalry won the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) first up in the spring before running second to Merion in the Listed Living Legends Stakes (1400m). The colt then ran unplaced in all of his next three starts, including the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

The Fastnet Rock colt is due to resume in a three-year-old handicap over 1300 metres at Sandown Racecourse on February 14 before targeting the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 7.

“He holds a nomination for the Australian Guineas and we’ll just see where he takes us after that,” Kavanagh said.

Listed UCI Stakes (1800m) winner Magicool also impressed Kavanagh in the jumpout. The colt is in the middle of a cobalt investigation but is still being aimed towards the Group 1 ATC Australian Derby (2400m) on April 4 at Royal Randwick.

“I was surprised by the amount of pace he showed and he finished off strongly too,” he said.

“He looks to have improved since the Spring and he’s nominated for the Australian Guineas but there’s certainly Sydney and even Brisbane as an option.”
