Gold Coast trainer Toby Edmonds is confident promising sprinter Mr Wind is better than midweek grade ahead of his Sydney debut.

The lightly raced Mr Wind is set to have his third start in Wednesday’s 1200m benchmark handicap at Warwick Farm.

The four-year-old entire made an impressive debut over that distance at Doomben on September 7.

He opened up a huge lead in the straight despite not being asked for a major effort, allowing jockey Jeff Lloyd to ease him down to a 1-3/4 length win.

Mr Wind couldn’t replicate that form at his second start, finishing sixth in a Class Three plate at Eagle Farm on September 24 after jumping awkwardly and being posted wide throughout the race.

“His maiden win was very dominant and then he made a mess of the start the other at Doomben at his second run,” Edmonds said.

“He had a wide trip and only got beaten a couple of lengths so it was a good run.

“Although he’s four, as he matures and gets a bit of race sense and learns what it’s all about he’ll end up a really, really nice horse.”

Mr Wind was a $42,500 yearling bought by now retired Victorian trainer Peter Moody.

He was Hong Kong-bound, but the sale fell through opening the door for Edmonds and owner Darren Halpin to get the horse.

“He was owned up there and failed the vet test. He had some issues,” Edmonds said.

“We were able to buy him so that’s why he’s so late taking off.”

Mr Wind will carry 56.5kg, a weight Edmonds believes has the front-running horse well placed.

He is the $3.20 favourite ahead of the Chris Waller-trained Pound Sterling who is at $4.60.

Mr Wind was scratched from Doomben on Saturday after drawing a wide gate and is currently drawn with three runners inside him.

“The barrier draw is a big advantage,” Edmonds said.

“There’s only one turn to go around at Warwick Farm so he should be up on the speed to run really well.”

Edmonds is hoping to resume a winning association with star Sydney jockey Brenton Avdulla, after the pair teamed up to win last year’s Coffs Harbour Cup with Our Boy Nicholas.

“It’s a plus having him. He’s riding in really good form at the moment,” Edmonds said.
