Possible 2015 Caulfield Guineas Aim for Snoopy

Team Hawkes are looking at a possible Caulfield Guineas 2015 run in Melbourne next month with the stable’s up-and-comer Snoopy after his win at Ballarat on Thursday.

The improving three-year-old Lope De Vega colt continues to handle the challenges presented to him and has now won three from three for a nice undefeated record heading into the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

After a winning debut at Seymour back in January, he returned on August 12 to win at Sandown-Hillside in a half-length 1300m win over More Than Most carrying a hefty 60kg.

He relished a step up to 1400m and a drop back to 56.5kg on Thursday at Ballarat, Snoopy and jockey Dwayne Dunn combining again to beat home the fast finishing Greg Eurell-trained Classy Al by a head in the $30,000 Hygain BM70 Handicap.

It was the first time Snoopy had run on a Heavy-rated track, but he handled the conditions well to keep his flawless record intact.

Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes told Racing Victoria the next-up run for Snoopy would likely be in black-type company at Flemington Racecourse on September 12 – Makybe Diva Stakes Day – in the $120,000 Listed Henry Bucks Best Dressed Stakes (1400m).

“He’s only a boy this horse so he’s done a really good job and the truth is he’s a winner,” Hawkes said.

“There’s a race a Listed race for three-year-olds at Flemington for him in two and a half weeks and that will get him up in the ratings a bit so we’ll see how we go there and then work out which way we go in the bigger and better stuff.”

From there bigger things are calling for the improver, Snoopy nominated for the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over the mile on October 10.

There is also a chance he could got to Sydney for a shot at the $400,000 Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick over more distance on the same day should he show the signs of a genuine three-year-old staying type.

“Whether he’s a Caulfield Guineas horse or not, well he’s on the improve and there’s no doubt that he’ll keep improving,” Hawkes added.

In the pre-field Caulfield Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, Snoopy currently pays $34 for the win.

Snoopy is also nominated for the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 24 and the lucrative $750,000 Group 3 Caulfield Classic (2000m) the week before.
