Ali Baba On Target For Guineas

Following an eye catching last start performance by Ali Baba (pictured), in the Gr.2 Sarten Memorial on Monday, it is now confirmed the three-year-old son of Savabeel will take his place in the Gr.1 Sothys 2000 Guineas on Saturday, November 7.

After rearing and knuckling over at the start, Ali Baba and rider Grant Cooksley quickly re-gathered and took a position on the rail at the rear of the field.

Travelling nicely throughout, Ali Baba was forced to make a run for luck along the rail some 400m from home, and without a fully clear passage, still produced a great turn of foot to finish in fourth place – less than a length from the winner.

“He’s created a very good impression against a strong field, even after blowing the start, and he’s warranted a trip down south,” co-trainer Chad Ormsby said.

“We couldn’t be happier with how he has come through the race and we think he is a serious chance at claiming the feature.”

Carrying the colours of long-time client Barry and Deidre Neville-White, Ali Baba is race by Ballymore Stables Australia Pty Ltd, Barry and Deidre Neville-White, and his breeder Murray Jones.
