The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas, which is due to run at the Gold Coast Racecourse this Saturday May 5, 2012.
Included in the 2012 Gold Coast Guineas final field and barrier draw is Biggles.
The three-year-old gelding has won four of his 10 race starts and has earned close to $150,000 in prize money.
Trainer Noel Doyle is confident Biggles can win the 2012 Gold Coast Guineas over the interstate horses.
“I think the interstate horses should be more worried about him on his home track but you’ve always got to be wary of the interstate horses,” Doyle said.
“He’s coming along well since I gave him a barrier trial at Deagon last week and 1200 metres first-up is ideal for him.
“He wasn’t beaten far in the Magic Millions Guineas (1.6 lengths) when he drew the car park and never got on the track.”
Despite Biggles talent, Doyle is not aiming him towards this year’s group 1 Stradbroke Handicap.
“He’s one of the better horses I’ve trained but this year’s Stradbroke is probably a little too soon for him,” Doyle said.
“He’ll make a nice Stradbroke horse next year.
“The Inglis Guineas is worth a lot of money and I’m considering sending him down for it.
“If I don’t he’ll run in the Fred Best Classic at Doomben next start.”
Biggles has drawn barrier 14 for the 2012 Gold Coast Guineas and will be ridden by jockey Timothy Bell.
