2015 WA Guineas Aim for Fairetha Winner London Line

Dan Morton’s in-form three-year-old London Line is likely to back-up with a return to Ascot Racecourse in a fortnight for the WA Guineas 2015 on the back of a win in the $100,000 Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) over the weekend.

A son of top WA sire Blackfriars, London Line posted his fourth win at start number 10 in the Fairetha on the back of a 1500m win at the track in non-black type company the run before.

On Saturday he had a half-length to spare over stablemate Man Booker in the Listed feature, with the race’s $2.15 favourite Universal Law only managing to run sixth.

Winning hoop Jason Brown gave London Line the perfect ride, settling the horse fourth off the pace set by frontrunner Who Dat Singa.

On the straight the eventual winner put himself in the frame, moving up to challenge the leaders and charging late to put a narrow margin on Man Booker who did well after racing three-wide throughout.

Pacesetter Who Date Singa, trained by Muchea horseman Alan Mathews, held for third.

The run was enough to encourage Morton and connections to target the $500,000 Group 2 W.A. Guineas (1600m) over the mile on Railway Stakes Day, November 21.

“We are really pleased with the win, obviously heading into the Guineas everything is good,” Morton told Perth Racing on Saturday post-victory.

“We opted for the 1500 (metres) first-up and we knew he was fit enough for today, and I think going forward he is going to be a stayer.”

Current pre-field WA Guineas odds at bookmakers around the country have the Fred Kersley-trained Blackfriars filly Blackwood as the firm favourite.

She has won five of her six starts to date with her only loss being a third in the Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m) first-up on October 21 before she won the Listed Burgess Queen Stakes (1400m) at her last start 10 days later.

Blackwood is also proven over the mile already having won over the 1600m at Belmont during the winter.

The next best fancied in futures WA Guineas betting are the undefeated Grant Williams-trained More Than Ready filly Perfect Reflections who beat Blackwood home winning the Belgravia Stakes, Burgess Queen Stakes runner-up Showy Chloe who is Group 2 placed and a Group 3 winner at the track, Domesday filly Arcadia Dream and Morton’s Fairetha Stakes second placed Discorsi gelding Man Booker.

London Line is just off this top pack, with the mile set to suit as he has winning form up to 1500m and is four-from-seven at the Ascot track.

Morton also said on Saturday he was pleased with the Fairetha Stakes run over Man Booker who had a luckless run throughout before lifting late with Jerry Noske in the saddle.

“He was great,” he said.

“Jerry rode him well, and was a little bit wide in running.

“He ran right through the line, so the Guineas looks a good target for them both.”
