Veranillo In 'Top 5' For Godolphin

By Brad Gray

As far as two-year-olds go Veranillo sits right at the point end for Godolphin and the colt will be out to prove his Golden Slipper credentials in the Hinchinbrook Plates (1100m) at Randwick on Saturday.

“He showed us a lot of promise when he won in the spring and he trialled quite nicely last week,” John O’Shea said.

“He’s on trial for a Golden Slipper run and will have one more lead up run, probably in the Skyline.

“At this stage he’s in the top five of our two-year-olds.”

Veranillo was very professional on debut

Godolphin are also well represented in the Group Three Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) with Beaded’s son Bezel kicking off his autumn while Bryneich will be looking to replicate his devastating first-up win at Canterbury.

“(Bezel) didn’t have very long off and has come back in good shape.”

“His trial last week was pretty quiet. He might need the run on Saturday but he’s on track for the Randwick Guineas which looks the right race for him.

“He’ll run (again) in the Hobartville Stakes in two weeks’ time.

“(Bryneich) put up a big performance to win like he did the other night.

“We’ve also got the Randwick Guineas in mind for him. He’s obviously a bit sharper at this stage than Bezel, we’ll see how he comes through Saturday and then decide where we go.”

Also keep an eye out for late-maturing mare Circular in the Group Two Breeders Classic (1200m) after she really hit her straps at the back end of her last preparation. She’s likely to find a few too sharp first-up over the sprint trip but watch for her working through the line.

“We’ve got a couple of nice stakes races in mind for her over the next few weeks. She’s had a quiet trial and will come on from Saturday’s race,” O’Shea said.

Meanwhile, talented three-year-old Morton’s Fork will resume at Caulfield in the Group Three Manfred Stakes this weekend.

“The only time he’s missed a place he was very unlucky and he confirmed that by going on to win the Sandown Guineas.”

“The Australian Guineas is his target.”
