Oliver to ride Savabeel colt in Guineas

Champion jockey Damien Oliver has secured the prime ride on rising star Mo’unga (NZ) (Savabeel) for the Caulfield Guineas.

The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old has established himself as one of Australia’s most exciting horses following eye-catching wins at Newcastle and Rosehill this preparation.

The son of Savabeel, owned by Aquis, booked his ticket to the Guineas with an impressive win in the Listed Dulcify Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill earlier this month.

He moved into $6.50 for the Gr.1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on the back of that performance.

Oliver, who notched his 120th Group One win on Saturday when successful on Russian Camelot (Camelot), hasn’t won the Caulfield Guineas since Centro (NZ) (Century) in 1990.
