Dunn to Ride 2015 Blue Diamond Hopefuls at Rosehill

Following jockey James McDonald’s exodus from his racing partnership with Team Hawkes in favour of Godolphin, Melbourne-based jockey Dwayne Dunn has been called to Sydney to partner Hawkes stable’s two first starters at Rosehill.

Dunn rides extensively for the Hawkes brothers in Melbourne and was happy to travel interstate to partner both Mawahibb and Lake Geneva in their debut races on Saturday.

Mawahibb is one of six two-year-old colts tackling the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) while Lake Geneva will race against nine two-year-old fillies in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m).

Both juveniles remain in contention for the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) and $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) in the autumn but will need to impress in their respective races on Saturday to continue on the path.

“It’s a bit two-edged whether they stay up in Sydney or they bring them down for the Diamond,” Dunn told Sky Racing.

“That’s why John (Hawkes) wanted me to get a feel of them, for the Diamond and the Slipper.”

Mawahibb is a half brother to last year’s Golden Slipper winner Mossfun and appears to have inherited the winning genes after impressing Dunn in a jumpout in Melbourne as well as winning a barrier trial in Sydney on January 20 where the colt found enough ground and ran a good time in a nice piece of work.

He is a $4 shot in the Canonbury Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au.

“The colt has been down here (in Melbourne) through the system,” Dunn said.

“He’s shown us he is a top quality galloper and I’m expecting him to run really well.”

Lake Geneva is an $8 chance to win the 2015 Widden Stakes after running second in a trial last week.

Back either juvenile to win their debut race on Saturday to receive a $250 bonus match on your first bet. Just quote code: BETBONUS.
