Barrier “Big Advantage” for Disposition in CS Hayes Stakes 2015

Jockey Craig Williams is looking forward to getting aboard Perth expat Disposition in Saturday’s 2015 CS Hayes Stakes at Flemington where he says a good barrier is a “big advantage”.

In one of the hot form races of the weekend, the $150,000 Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) features 13 runners with original acceptor Kermadec racing in Sydney instead.

Wearing the number one saddlecloth is the now Wez Hunter-trained Reset gelding Disposition who jumps from barrier seven, coming in one after the early scratching.

Disposition makes his interstate debut in the CS Hayes Stakes, a traditional lead-up race for three-year-old colts and geldings heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) back at Flemington Racecourse on March 7.

Hunter’s recent stable acquisition is one such youngster with 2015 Australian Guineas plans to back-up next month, the former Western Australia galloper paying $11 in the latest markets for the Group 1.

For Saturday’s CS Hayes Stakes, a race whose winner last to go on to complete the double with an Australian Guineas success was Dash For Cash (2002), Disposition is the $5.50 equal second favourite.

Three horses are batting for favouritism with market mover Stratum Star ($5) currently topping the CS Hayes Stakes odds.

Disposition and second favourite for the Australian Guineas, the undefeated Lucky Liberty are then next on $5.50.

To date Hunter’s runner has had six runs for a tidy record of four wins and two seconds.

All of those starts have been in Perth however, the form of which needs to now hold up in Melbourne.

Two back he ran second to Rommel in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) last November.

Then last time out punters got a taste of just what Disposition was capable of when he finished just a head back from the Chris Waller-trained Sydney visitor Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot on December 6.

He’s first-up then this weekend and Williams is looking forward to the ride, saying his Kingston Town form was positive looking ahead at the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival features.

“I’m really looking forward to riding him, he’s got great form in Western Australia and you can see his formlines measure up through a horse like Moriarty,” Williams told Racenet.

“I’ve ridden him in a barrier trial and been very impressed with him.

“He’s had another jumpout since then and he’s drawn a nice barrier which is a big advantage.

“He’s a very exciting horse, he’s definitely an Australian Guineas contender.”
