2015 Caulfield Guineas Still an Option for Love Goes On

August 10th, 2015

Caulfield trainer Henry Dwyer will test the legitimacy of a 2015 Caulfield Guineas nomination when saddling up-and-coming gelding Love Goes On in a minor race at Sandown racecourse this Wednesday.

Love Goes On has only appeared on course competitively once; but delivered Dwyer a particularly good surprise when producing an impressive turn of foot in the final straight at Wodonga to take out the Jack Maher Classic (1200m) by close to three lengths through heavy going on July 29th.

Confirmed to take to the start for a 1300m race this Wednesday, Dwyer told Racing Victoria he was unsure how the son of Not A Single Doubt would perform first-up and is hopeful of a similarly-positive performance this week.

“With the Guineas nominations, you’ve got to throw them in if they’ve shown some ability,” he said.

“Wednesday will give us a good guide.

“I thought he’d need 1400 (metres) and blinkers to probably show his best, but he did that pretty much on raw ability first-up.

“I think the 1300 suits ideally at this stage, but certainly he’ll be better over further longer long-term.

“He’s out of a Carnegie mare, so that augurs well for him getting a trip later on and he just looks like a horse that needs to fill out and physically develop a bit.

“He’s only a lean, light horse but certainly the natural ability is there.”

Dwyer confirmed the 2015 Caulfield Guineas will remain on the radar for the three-year-old this time, but revealed he is unsure if he will remain in work up until the October jump date.

“The Guineas is a fair way away and I dare say he’ll be in the paddock by then,” Dwyer added.

“He’s still a preparation away and he’s going to be a nice three-year-old in the autumn. He’s not quite there yet, but we’ll try and get a city win with him while he’s up and going.”
