Chivalry Set for 2014 Caulfield Guineas

July 16th, 2014

A notable performer in two-year-old events over the 2014 Sydney Autumn Carnival, trainer Mark Kavanagh has revealed Chivalry will be geared towards the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11th.

Unlucky to finish second to I Am The General in the Leadwest Plate (1000m) on debut on December 14th, Chivalry more than stamped his claims as one to watch over major two-year-old events of the autumn when charging home to beat a classy field by two lengths in the Quest Moonee Valley Plate (1000m) on December 28th.

Returning to work part-way through June, Kavanagh said he is confident the Street Cry colt is more than capable of competing to a high standard through the Spring Racing Carnival, but will allow the weather later this month determine a starting point on the way to the 2014 Caulfield Guineas.

“He’s just come back from the farm, he’s done some work out there and he’s just come in to Flemington now,” Kavanagh told Racing Victoria.

“He’s just trotting and cantering and doing a bit of conditioning work.

“He’s pretty easy on the eye looking at him right now.

“He was a two-year-old head in a three-year-old body during the autumn which is not an uncommon thing.

“He’s on track at the moment but when he steps out will just be determined by the weather.”

Running on to finish third to Rubick and Jabali in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude C&G (1100m) first-up this year on February 8th, Chivalry was unlucky to be blocked for a run in the final straight of the featured Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), finishing a disappointing eighth.

Returning to work ahead of the majority of likely opponents for the 2014 Caulfield Guineas, Chivalry is currently offered at a generous quote of $11 for success; sharing the second line of betting with Looks Like The Cat and Meursault.
