Punters will get to see how the three-year-old gelding is faring ahead of the $500,000 feature race this Saturday in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington. Lucky Liberty is one of 24 three-year-old colts and geldings nominated for the race.

The gelding earned his high place in the 2015 Australian Guineas market after winning his third race from as many starts on January 31. After winning his maiden on December 28, Lucky Liberty was successful in two Benchmark races the following month. However the 2015 CS Hayes Stakes will be his first test at black-type level racing.

Trainer Henry Dwyer believes Lucky Liberty’s talent will help him measure up on Saturday in his toughest race to date.

“I think he’s up to that class,” Dwyer told Sky Racing.

“With the condition he’s in we’d have to go in with some confidence.”

Dwyer is so confident in the three-year-old gelding’s talent, he was considering putting him in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) last Saturday, which was won by Peter Moody’s Dissident.

However he decided to give the gelding a week’s rest, believing the three weeks from his last start win into the CS Hayes would work in his advantage in the long run.

“To sustain that for another five weeks to the Guineas from his last run was going to be a pretty big ask so I just thought having that quiet week in between would help him out a bit,” he said.

“And he’ll be 100 per cent for the Guineas.”

Dwyer may be confident in Lucky Liberty’s ability but there’s no denying the fact that the gelding will face some tough rivals in the CS Hayes.

Promising Perth galloper Disposition will get his first start in Melbourne under the care of new trainer Wez Hunter, Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) runner-up Stratum Star is nominated along with Mark Kavanagh’s Chivalry, Michael Moroney’s Merion, Gai Waterhouse’s Wandjina, and Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) runner-up Delectation.

The final field for the race will be released on Wednesday following which the live betting market will open at Ladbrokes.com.au.
