Barry Campbell’s Mossman three-year-old Admiral earned his trip to Victoria for a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) after an upset win over The Cleaner in the Listed George Adams Plate (1600m) at Launceston last Wednesday.

The team already had him nominated for the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival classic with an eye on making the trip after Admiral’s smart runs this time in including a victory in the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) at Hobart in January.

Beating cult local galloper The Cleaner, third to Hucklebuck in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington last spring, further cemented the Australian Guineas ambitions.

In the George Adams Admiral, now a winner of nine of his 12 starts, was ridden by his regular jockey in Tasmanian Brendan McCoull who is the only hoop to have ridden the up-and-coming galloper under race conditions.

A suspended McCoull won’t make the trip across for Saturday’s test however with the Spreyton-based Campbell more than happy to book Dunn, after his maiden Australian Guineas victory, for the ride.

“The big riders win the big races, he’s a great rider Dwayne, so we’re lucky to get him,” Campbell told Racing Victoria.

Currently sitting second in the Victorian Metropolitan Jockeys’ Premiers, Dunn continued his ace season last Saturday with a Group 1 win aboard Shamal Wind who defeated stablemate Under The Louvre to hand Robert Smerdon the quinella in the $400,000 Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m).

Campbell is confident Dunn won’t find any problems adapting to Admiral either describing his horse as practically “bombproof”.

“He’s not hard to ride,” Campbell said.

“He’ll race just off the pace and finds the line. He’s got no habits, he doesn’t lay in and he doesn’t lay out, so he’s pretty well bombproof.”

Current pre-field Australian Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au are firmly led by the Chris Waller-trained Kermadec ($3.80), the Sydneysider having won his only previous Melbourne start at Flemington back on Derby Day last November.

Admiral meanwhile is listed as a $15 chance.
