One of three Group features on the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Day program, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) attracted a bumper 24 three-year-old colts and geldings at nomination stage on Monday.

It is a start-studded list of potential starters, the bulk of which head towards the $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) back at the track on March 7.

One of those is Kavanagh’s locally-trained Street Cry colt Chivalry who is also nominated for the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) also held at Flemington but on March 14.

Early Australian Guineas odds at have Caulfield Guineas champ Shooting To Win as the $8 favourite just ahead of Lucky Liberty at $9 while Chivalry is at a slightly longer $17.

He is then rated a $26 chance in futures Australian Cup betting, markets led by the now Kris Lees-trained Melbourne Cup winning German import Protectionist at $4.

Chivalry hasn’t won since a successful first-up effort at Caulfield last August in the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) where he was very fresh after a six month spell following a fast finishing eighth to Earthquake in last year’s Blue Diamond Stakes.

He had a solid but unremarkable spring campaign after that with his most notable efforts being a fifth in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and a fifth to Moonovermanhattan in the Group 2 The Vase (2040m) in October.

His first-up run this time in then took place on February 7 at Sandown-Hillside in the William Hill Plate (1300m) where he ran fourth to Profit Share.

He and jockey Damian Lane ran wide during the race sitting sixth in the eight-horse field, one off the rails.

He made ground turning for home and threatened late but was disadvantaged by the early moderate tempo.

That run is one he should be able to improve on this weekend in the CS Hayes Stakes according to Kavanagh who is keep to step him out over the 1400m.

He’s had two Flemington runs for two seconds and has a good second-up record of one win and a second from two starts.

He also galloped well on the steeplegrass at Flemington this morning over 1200m alongside Oltre Finioto where he ran the distance in 1:15.60, including the final 400m in 22.58 seconds.

Fellow CS Hayes Stakes hopeful Merion also worked at Flemington alongside a stablemate this morning, the Michael Moroney-trained O’Reilly gelding having run third in the same race Chivalry resumed in a fortnight ago.

His workout bud was Zazparella and the pair ran 1:16.33, the final 400m in 23.62 seconds, Merion getting past the mare on her inside in the final 75m of work.

Moroney’s Al Maher five-year-old Zazparella is also down to run on the weekend at Flemington nominated for the $80,000 #Flemington Handicap (1600m) for fillies and mares.
