Brett Partelle has labelled the wet conditions as the biggest danger to Magic Millions Guineas winner Torio’s Quest on Saturday.

Torio’s Quest missed a planned start two weeks ago but the Wyong-based trainer gave him an exhibition gallop at Newcastle and said he was spot-on for the $150,000 Listed Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m).

“He had an exhibition gallop last week at Newcastle and he sizzled,” Partelle said.

“He came home in 32.4 seconds (for the last 600m) and that shows how he is going. He’s spot-on, and if it wasn’t for a wet track I really believe he would just be winning.”

Hawkesbury was rated a heavy (8) on Friday afternoon.

Torio’s Quest won the $1 million Magic Million Guineas (1400m) on a slow track in January but he is yet to race on a heavy surface.

“The track is a little concern because he hasn’t been in really heavy going yet,” Partelle said.

“Hopefully he goes through it.”

The gelding by Oratorio was scratched from the South Pacific Classic (1400m) on Doncaster day at Randwick in order to run in the Gosford Guineas (1200m) the following day.

However, the Gosford meeting was called off due to wet weather with the Guineas transferred to Anzac Day.

Partelle elected for the exhibition gallop instead of running Torio’s Quest at Gosford on Monday.

He said the gelding was a lot more forward than first-up at Rosehill on March 26 when he finished eighth of 11 in the Listed Darby Munro Stakes (1200m).

PJ Bell Stakes runner-up Steps In Time is favourite at $2.90 with TAB Sportsbet for the Hawkesbury Guineas, while Torio’s Quest has firmed from $7 to $5 to be outright second favourite.
