The Anthony Freedman-trained King Of Hastings will get the danger to press his claims for the Magic Tens of millions Guineas when he runs at Flemington.
The gelding is taking a look to bop again from the one unplaced run of his six-start profession when he strains up in Saturday’s Say Hi To Summer season Racing Trophy (1200m).
King Of Hastings completed 5th within the Magic Tens of millions 3&4YO Vintage (1100m) at Ballarat on November 23 when he was once coming off a let-up.
Whilst conceding the run was once a bit disappointing, assistant teacher Sam Freedman believes the pony had excuses, together with no longer appreciating a “shifty” floor at the day.
“We are pleased with how he has educated on. He is have compatibility and neatly and it seems a excellent race for him,” Freedman mentioned.
The Magic Tens of millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) on the Gold Coast on January 11 is a summer time choice for King Of Hastings, at the side of a number of races in Melbourne.
“If he gained actually neatly we would glance to take him up there,” Freedman mentioned.
“He would need to be beautiful spectacular to warrant the shuttle up however it is probably at the playing cards if he was once going actually neatly.
“We pulled up stumps within the spring just a little early to stay that choice to be had. We did not moderately get a information at Ballarat so we’re going to get a excellent information day after today on the place he sits.
“If he is not as much as that mark then there is some actually great races over the New 12 months length so he may just goal a few of the ones.”
Any other three-year-old from the strong, Night Glory, runs in Saturday’s December Twilight Handicap (1400m) and Freedman believes he could be a froce after a delightful fourth on his go back from a spell at Sandown on November 20.
The winner of the Sandown race, Neighbourhood, and runner-up Scorpius, have each since gained.
“He ran tremendous at Sandown first-up and the shape has been franked,” Freedman mentioned.
“There may be been two winners out of the race and he was once arguably some of the runs of the race.
“Out to the 1400 metres must go well with and if there is a little bit of pace on and he can simply loosen up early he must be completing off robust.
“It is a great stepping stone for a mile again at Flemington in two weeks time as neatly, however he has come on and goes neatly.”
