Mongolian Khan On Trial for 2015 Australian Derby

Three-year-old colt Mongolian Khan will get his first Australian start in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on Saturday, against a small field of just six three-year-old rivals.

Trainer Murray Baker is confident the colt will measure up against the small yet classy field, however the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) two weeks later is where he expects the colt to really shine this autumn.

“He measures up,” Baker told Sky Racing.

“He’s a good class horse. He’s only been beaten once and he’s kept stepping up to the mark.

“It will be interesting to see how he goes.”

Mongolian Khan is a $5 hopeful in the Rosehill Guineas betting at, behind co-favourites Hallowed Crown and Sweynesse at $2.80.

The colt has won six of his seven career starts and has enjoyed four consecutive black-type race wins in the past three months.

Mongolian Khan won the Listed Guineas Prelude (2100m) at Ellerslie by one and a half lengths on December 14 followed by the Group 2 Waikato Guineas (2000m) and Group 2 Avondale Guineas (2100m). The colt stepped up to Group 1 racing for the first time on February 28, winning the New Zealand Derby by one length.

He arrived in Sydney last Monday and has settled in well. Baker is hoping the colt can run a good, fresh race in the 2015 Rosehill Guineas, giving him a great lead-up towards the 2015 Australian Derby.

“It’s a very good field. We’re just hoping he can run a good race fresh,” Baker said.

“He’s a good stayer. I don’t know whether he’ll be good enough to win (on Saturday) but I think he’ll run an honest race.”

The $2 million Australian Derby will run at Randwick on April 4, Day One of The Championships series.
