Royal Symphony cements top Caulfield Guineas spot with Pin & Win Plate win

Unbeaten three year old Royal Symphony cemented his spot at the top of the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas betting with a sensational win in the Listed $120,000 Pin & Win Plate (1400m) at Flemington today.

Trainer Tony McEvoy is uncertain if Royal Symphony will have another start before heading into the Group 1 $2m Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 14 and will monitor the Domesday colt’s recovery before making a decision on his next outing.

“I just want to see the horse’s condition, she how quickly he recovers and see whether we go straight to the mile or if he needs a 1400m again,” McEvoy said.

“He was very fresh coming into today but I thought he was fit enough and thankfully he got the job done.

Winning jockey Dwayne Dunn found himself further back in the field on Royal Symphony than he had anticipated after suffering some crowding in the early stages and it looked like he had no chance of finding clear running in the early part of the straight when he was held up behind a wall of horses.

Dunn just had to sit and wait and once the gaps started to appear, navigated Royal Symphony ($2 favourite) into the clear and the colt responded and powered home to grab Eclair Sunshine ($61) with a few strides to go.

Sebfire ($18) ran on from back in the field to fill third spot.

Royal Symphony maintained his unbeaten record with today’s victory with four wins from four race starts and is the clear $3 favourite for the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas at Ladbrokes.com.au.
