Griff, the promising colt trained by Ciaron Maher, is gearing up to kick off his autumn campaign in the highly anticipated Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) at Randwick this Saturday.

Maher’s confidence in the colt is evident, especially considering Griff’s impressive track record as a three-year-old, which included three consecutive victories culminating in a remarkable win in the prestigious $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in his last outing.

“He’s come back well, he has furnished a little bit,” said Maher.

“He’s going to campaign in Sydney and probably head to the Guineas at Randwick.”

With the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) slated as the primary target for Griff, Maher is also keeping an open mind about potential race options.

Should Griff’s form justify it, Maher is not ruling out the possibility of testing the colt against older competitors in the esteemed Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Online betting sites have Griff marked as a +1200 hope in futures markets for the Randwick Guineas on March 9.
