Trainer Gerald Ryan has earmarked a possible trip to Melbourne for impressive Randwick debut winner Amorino.

The two-year-old colt showed talent and professionalism in Saturday’s City Tattersalls Plate (1000m), surging forward after only an even getaway before pulling away in the straight to score by 2-1/2 lengths.

Ryan has never taken a two-year-old to Melbourne since he’s been based in Sydney but believes Amorino ($5.50) is the right horse to do it with, and pinpointed the Group Three Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington as the race for him in three weeks time.

“He’s just been a very professional little horse all the way along,” Ryan said.

“If he did super well after this I might take him down to Melbourne for the Maribyrnong Plate.

“I’ve never taken a two-year-old to Melbourne but I reckon this horse could be the one to do it with because of his attitude and his nature.”

Ridden by champion jockey Jim Cassidy, who brought up an early double with the victory, Amorino sat on the speed with the Clarry Conners-trained Lord Duveen but quickly raced away from that colt at the 300-metre mark and was strong to the line as the Darley-owned duo Rusambo and Knoydart attempted to chase him down.

Rusambo ($5.50), who was third in the Breeders Plate on debut two weeks ago, finished second with Knoydart ($3.40 fav) another 2-1/4 lengths away third.

“I think he’ll be a horse that will get a bit further later on as well, he’s just not a speed horse,” Ryan said of the winner.

“He’s a nice horse.”

The colt’s owners Elio and Jacqui Galante made the trip to Sydney from Western Australia to watch Amorino’s debut.

“There was a bit of pressure on when Elio rang and told me they were coming over today,” Ryan said.

Amorino is a son of Snitzel who Ryan trained throughout his career which included victory in the 2006 Group One Oakleigh Plate.
