Mick Price believes everything has to go right for Tarzino to win the Australian Guineas

Mick Price will look to back up his Blue Diamond quinella with Extreme Choice and Flying Artie from the weekend when Victoria Derby winner Tarzino takes on the milers in Saturday’s Australian Guineas at Flemington.

Price is straightforward in assessing the Australian Derby-bound son of Tavistock’s chances at the mile, despite his eye-catching fourth behind Mahuta in the Autumn Classic first-up a couple of weeks ago.

“He’s flying at the moment, we took him to Sandown on Friday and were very pleased with the way he worked,” Price said. “He will need everything to go right for him in the race to win because he is going to get back.

“He is on an Australian Derby preparation and is more of a stayer and is meeting milers at their trip on Saturday.

“But if they go hard he is going to be one of the big closers and will be in the finish because he is very strong.”

Tarzino will head to Sydney after the Australian Guineas, for which he is on the third line of betting at $7 with Mahuta and Press Statement, which will not run in Melbourne rather the Randwick Guineas on Saturday.

Kiwi Xtravagant is the $4 Ladbrokes favourite head of Palentino at $4.80, Perth filly Perfect Reflection rounds out those under double figures at $9.

Price was happy with the way Extreme Choice and Flying Artie come through the Blue Diamond and believes three weeks into the Golden Slipper will be perfect for them.

Extreme Choice scored by 1-3/4 lengths in the Blue Diamond to maintain his unbeaten record and is challenging Capitalist for Golden Slipper favouritism.

“He has pulled up great. Everything has gone right for him and in the run everything went wrong for Flying Artie on Saturday,” Price said.

“They will both come up for the Golden Slipper and we intend to pay the late entry for Flying Artie.

“When he got speared off the track at the top of the straight [on Saturday] I thought that was it for him [Flying Artie] but he kept coming and his closing sectional was very good.

“There is not that much between and [Saturday] was Extreme Choice’s day but I can see them finishing closer together in the Golden Slipper.”

Price said it was a case of maintaining the fitness of Extreme Choice and Flying Artie, which will head straight to the Golden Slipper without another run. Price’s other Blue Diamond runner China Dream, which finished down the track, is likely to be spelled.
