Michael Kent Jnr’s Caulfield Guineas Day Preview

Michael Kent Jnr's Caulfield Guineas

Co-trainer Michael Kent Jnr has partnered with racingbase.com.au for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and will be providing weekly previews of the stable’s runners.

After steering readers into an $8 winner and $5 placegetter on Turnbull Stakes Day, Kent has again given us an honest assessment of the stable’s Caulfield Guineas Day contenders. 

The Price Kent Racing team has a total of six horses lining up at Caulfield on Guineas Day, and you can get the inside word on each runner below:

 

Michael Kent Jnr’s Stable Preview for Caulfield Guineas Day

Race 1 – IMMORTALITY – 12:15PM Magic Millions Debutant Stakes (1000 METRES)

“He has really been improving quickly.
We were impressed with the way that he won his jump out. He was by himself, untested and his ears were pricked, so it looked like he still had more to offer.
He’s drawn a lovely gate, he flies out of the barrier, and he will put himself in a winning position.
Still learning and does come on and off the bridal, but he’s a nice each-way chance.”

Race 1 – COMMODITY – 12:15PM Magic Millions Debutant Stakes (1000 METRES)

“Also a jump out winner and did it in nice time. He’s improved since that jump out as well.
He is professional which is a huge benefit in these early two-year-old races.
We don’t normally put the blinkers on our horses this early, but he’s such a laid-back character and he’s really responded with them.
He’s the most professional out of our three in this race.”

Race 1 – CAVALLA – 12:15PM Magic Millions Debutant Stakes (1000 METRES)

“She may not run due to the barrier, we are still deciding.
She was slightly underdone for her debut but shower her class winning over the 900m
Massively improved with the fitness gained and the experience.
If we run, she needs some luck from the draw.”

($11.00 with Sportsbet at time of publishing)

Race 3 – LOMBARDO – 1:25PM Neds Village Stakes (1200 METRES)

“Absolutely love this horse.
He’s trained on superbly.
He’s a natural go forward horse and we won’t be changing that this weekend.
We’re expecting even more improvement and it looks a lovely race for him on paper.
He should control the speed and be hard to beat.”

($1.75 with Sportsbet at time of publishing)

Race 9 – QUANTUM MECHANIC – 5:10PM Hyland Race Colours Toorak Handicap (1600 METRES)

“She’s a mare that always improves with racing which is a great thing considering her Group 2 placing last start.
She has come on since then, but she had too if she is going to be competitive in this race.
She’s suited by handicap conditions, drawn well, but needs to run a personal best here if she is to win.
I think she is a place chance ($5.50) and one for the multiples.”

($23.00 with Sportsbet at time of publishing)

Race 9 – I’M THUNDERSTRUCK – 5:10PM Hyland Race Colours Toorak Handicap (1600 METRES)

“He is in superb order.
He’s fitter and finally draws a gate.
I expect that he will settle between fifth and eighth.
If he gets some room, we will see his huge stride late and we think he’ll be hard to beat.
He really deserves a Group 1 victory, so hopefully it is in this race.
Still heading towards the Golden Eagle later this prep.”

($2.70 with Sportsbet at time of publishing)

Kent’s Best for Caulfield Guineas Day

“Lombardo is definitely our best bet for the weekend, followed by I’m Thunderstruck. If you’re wanting to back one of ours in the two-year-old race, then I think Commodity is the best out of the three.”
