Jamie Kah is set to ride Southport Tycoon for the first time as the dual Group 2 runner-up aims to secure his first stakes race victory in the upcoming Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m).

Speaking to Racing.com, managing owner Nathan Bennett expressed confidence in the horse.

“I know he got beat (in the Autumn Stakes) but I still think he’s a pretty good horse and I think grand final day he’s ready to peak and ready for a top run and out to the mile suits,” Bennett said.

“I think if he had his time again Damian (Lane) probably would have built a bit of momentum and not sit so pretty … sometimes it’s a game of inches.

“He is probably a $5 or $6 chance if he wins the other day.”

Trained by Ciaron Maher, Southport Tycoon is aiming to return to winning form after securing victories in his first two starts last year.

Southport Tycoon is currently a +1200 chance for the Australian Guineas with top horse racing betting sites.
