Hunter Excited About Disposition’s Chances in 2015 Australian Guineas

Former Perth-based gelding Disposition had a successful introduction to Melbourne racing two weeks ago and the three-year-olds new trainer Wez Hunter is excited about his second-up run in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) this Saturday.

Disposition ran in the first two in all six of his campaign starts during the Perth spring and summer carnival, which included finishing just a short half-head off Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic.

The three-year-old gelding went forward from his wide barrier before easing to settle in third place on the rails. He travelled well before getting a split to challenge on straightening and took the lead with 200m to go. After fighting back strongly, clinging to his lead, the gelding just failed to at the post.

Owner Bob Peters then elected to give the gelding a run in Melbourne during the autumn carnival, transferring him to the care of trainer Wez Hunter.

Disposition continued his successful form in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on February 21, running second to Wandjina. He chased up to find a forward position and got behind the leader. He got level at the 300m mark but was beaten just a short neck by Gai Waterhouse’s colt.

It was an impressive eastern states debut for Disposition and Hunter is keen to see him perform in the 2015 Australian Guineas with set weights.

“I thought his run first-up for us was good and I expect him to take good benefit from it,” Hunter told Sky Racing.

“You’d expect him to be highly competitive against everything he met that day at level weights on Saturday, it’s just the Kermadec factor I suppose.”

Disposition will meet Wandjina once again in Saturday’s feature race at Flemington but will have the advantage of running at the same weight – 56.5kg. This is 2.5kg better than in the CS Hayes Stakes when Wandjina enjoyed a minimum weight of 54kg.

Chris Waller’s Kermadec is the early favourite in the 2015 Australian Guineas betting at Ladbrokes.com.au. The Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) winner is the $3.80 favourite while Disposition is on the third line of betting at $7 followed by Wandjina at $8.
