First Law Eyes WA Guineas after Maiden Romp
Perth’s Gr2 WA Guineas (1600m) features prominently in trainer Simon Miller’s plans for First Law, who ended his maiden tag in dominant fashion at Belmont on Wednesday. First Law was sent out the $2.20 favourite in the Amelia Park Plate (1200m) after a debut fourth to Dunbar last month. He didn’t disappoint at his second race start where despite punching into a strong headwind outside the leader, reports rwwa.com.au, he powered home with such style he has put himself into the picture as a summer Ascot Carnival prospect. Ridden by Chris Parnham, it was all over bar the shutting for First Law by the 200m with the son of French stallion Dalghar (Anabaa) cruising home by almost 3-lengths. Talking to The Races WA, Miller enthused, “That was real good and a sound effort. He had to face the breeze and then went into another gear in the straight. That will do it for him now, he is off to the paddock and can come back later.” Miller declared of the kiwi-bred, “He’s my Guineas horse on the strength of what he was able to do today.” The Aga Khan’s group-winning Dalghar is a half-brother to Daylami and Dalakhani, and shuttles to Brighthill Farm.
