2015 Danehill Stakes over Rose For Ready For Victory

Price’s progressive More Than Ready colt kicked off his spring at Caulfield Racecourse last weekend running a brave third when only a long-neck off the Peter Moody-trained Gold Symphony in the Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes (1200m) and will stay on in Melbourne next start.

A winner in Victoria on debut taking out the Listed Festival of Racing 1000 (1000m) at Flemington before running fourth as 20/1 shot behind Vancouver in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill where he veered sideways, Ready For Victory also raced in Sydney’s Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) as a juvenile when seventh to Pride Of Dubai.

He handled the Melbourne way of racing well first-up in the McNeil Stakes and will return to the track where he enjoyed his sole victory to date on Makybe Diva Stakes Day, September 12, taking on a field of older rivals in the $200,000 Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m).

The Danehill runs on the same day as the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) in Sydney, for which Ready For Victory is also nominated but that his owners at Eliza Park International have now ruled out for the up-and-comer.

Instead Ready For Victory is likely to get back to elite level racing at Caulfield on October 10 in the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

“He’ll have had two 1200 (metre) races then he can go to 1400 metres in the Guineas Prelude and then onto the Guineas at a mile two weeks later,” Price confirmed to AAP, saying his owners would be in Melbourne to see him run in the Danehill Stakes.

The $175,000 Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) runs on Underwood Stakes Day, September 26, and has produced four of the past six Caulfield Guineas winners.

The last three-year-old to complete the double was Helmet (2011), while more recently the fellow Peter Snowden-trained Long John (2013) ran third in the Prelude before his Caulfield Guineas success two years ago.

Early Caulfield Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au for next month’s classic have the Gai Waterhouse-trained Vancouver ($5) and the Chris Waller-trained JJ Atkins champ Press Statement ($6) as the narrow favourites.

That duo will face off first in the Golden Rose, Press Statement $3.80 second pick behind the John O’Shea-trained Run To The Rose winner Exosphere ($2.90) to win, while Vancouver ($4.20) has slipped down to third in betting.

Ready For Victory meanwhile occupies the third line of futures Caulfield Guineas betting as the last of the single figure hopes at $7.
