Cindy Alderson said she holds confidence Liqueuro can win the G1 SA Derby

The three-year-old has won four out of his five career starts, including a last start win in the Listed Galilee Series Final over 2400 metres.

The son of Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente drew favourably in barrier six and gets Luke Currie aboard for the first time.

Cindy Alderson said she holds confidence Liqueuro can bring it on race day, even if he doesn’t show it in his trackwork.

“If you look at his race performances, you’d have to be fairly confident, I mean he’s won four out of his five race day starts,” she said.

“But his track work and his trials and everything he does around the stable doesn’t really fill you with much confidence.

“He’s obviously just a horse who brings it all for race day.”

Trackwork is an integral part of a horses training and is usually a good gauge as to how the horse is set to perform in its next race start.

The Cranbourne-based trainer had no idea of Liquero’s potential until he hit the track at Mornington back on January first.

Alderson doesn’t know what it is about the three-year-old as to why he doesn’t show his potential on the training track.

“He’s only a young horse. I don’t know maybe he just doesn’t show his strengths at trackwork,” she said.

“He’s definitely a stayer and he hasn’t really got a turn of foot, so if he doesn’t get those situations to suit him in his trackwork, which doesn’t normally work out, then he doesn’t look anywhere near as impressive.

“But he’s been very fortunate that most of them have been run along at a good tempo.”

Alderson also has Reuber, who finished third behind Liquero last start, nominated for the Group 1 Queensland Derby at Eagle Farm on Saturday. Liquero has opened on the second line of betting at $5 with tab.com.au.
