Hidden Dragon gelding, Hidden Warrior had an impressive Melbourne debut, taking out the Group Three Telstra PhoneWords Stakes over 1200m.
The lightly-raced gelding was steered to an all-the-way win by leading jockey Nash Rawiller, beating Haussmann by a half length with Chosen Moment a further three-quarters-of-a-length back third.
Trainer Paul Perry praised the ride after Rawiller led early then had to fight hard to hold off his challengers.
“Early in the race he showed a bit of speed then he had them nearly go again on him and to tough it out was a darn good effort,” Perry said.
He described Hidden Warrior as a horse which needed to be carefully managed.
“He wasn’t a strong horse and we just gave him a couple of good breaks, just to give him a bit of time to mature,” Perry said.
Perry said he had not yet decided if Hidden Warrior’s next task would be the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington next Saturday.
“I’ll see how he pulls up but I’ll probably put him in I suppose,” he said.
“I think he’ll be a usefull horse because I think he’s still a bit weak. I think he’s the sort of horse that 12 months away will be a lot better.”
Rawiller said Hidden Warrior had the makings of “a genuine Group One horse”.
That could be seen in his first race, when he ran superstar colt Pierro, to within a head.
Rawiller also believes that down the straight six at Flemington the horse will be far more competitive and have an easier time than they did at the Valley with all its turns.
“He showed what he was made of today that’s the main thing,” Rawiller said.
“He makes the job hard, he’s just that sort of horse, such a raw talent, a very nice horse.
“I think he’ll be better suited (to the Flemington straight). Ability carried him through (today).”
Promising Hotel Grand 3yo, Fiveandahalfstar, may start in next Saturday’s Victoria Derby after his impressive three length win at Rosehill on Cox Plate Day.
The Anthony Cummings’ gelding was ridden to perfection by Peter Robl in an all-the-way victory to beat home Rowie and Bradman in the $85,000 Sportingbet Handicap (1800m)
“He relaxed beautifully today and it was good to see him finish it off,” stable foreman Barry Smith said.
“He’s always had ability and he’s going to get better as he gets older.”
There is now a chance Fiveandahalfstar will back up in the $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington next Saturday on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, the decision on whether to accept them for the Victoria Derby final field to be left up the their trainer.
“I’m not sure what Anthony is going to do with him,” Smith admitted with an 1800m five days after the Derby another possible next-up assignment.
“He’s still on the upward spiral and he’ll really come into his own as a four-year-old,” Robl said.
“He still gives you that feeling he’s a touch immature but he’s definitely on the upward spiral.”

Queensland Racing has designed new stickers to help buyers with the QTIS status of a horse at a glance.
There are now two stickers with a distinct difference, so buyers will be able to see if the horse is fully paid up or just eligible for QTIS.
The white sticker means the initial payment has been made, however the horse isn’t fully paid up.
The maroon sticker indicates the horse is already fully QTIS paid.
Stickers have been sent to Magic Millions in time for next weeks Horses in Training Sale on the Gold Coast.
It is now up to vendors as to whether or not they take advantage of them.

The lightning fast, Buffering, is poised to wear Melbourne’s sprinting crown this spring with sizzling victories in the Group Two Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley on 28 September and again in the Group Two Schillaci at Caulfield.
The son of Mossman has now pushed through the $2 million mark, with considerably more to follow if successful in the Group One Manikato Stakes on Cox Plate day and the Group One Patinack Farm Classic on 10 November.
All of which is good news for Eliza Park Queensland newbie, Love Conquers All who recently covered Buffering’s dam, Action Annie: one of the highlights in a star studded book.
Also a multiple Group winning sprinter by Mossman (and for that matter standing on the same property where Buffering was foaled), Love Conquers All (pictured) is off to a ‘positive’ start with his first batch of mares tested in foal.
One of those matrons is the Marscay mare, Prima, who has missed in eight of her last 10 seasons (we’ll all be hoping that one stays the course … Prima is a half sister to legendary Kiwi stallion, Zabeel).
Shares are available in Love Conquers All, whose trainer, John Hawkes explains: “He raced against and defeated the best over three seasons including the likes of Hay List and More Joyous. You would not find a better looking horse … anywhere”.
