Cambridge trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman landed an early double at Pukekohe on Wednesday, with promising three-year-olds Daqiansweet Junior and Granados both scoring over 2100m and shaping as stayers of the future.


Fittingly, Baker and Forsman saddled Granados, a son of Mongolian Khan to win under a front-running Bosson ride, breaking maiden ranks at his fifth start after being around the money in his previous three starts.


“He has been thereabouts and looks typical of the Mongolian Khans. He has just needed ground and time,” Baker said.


“He is a horse that is on an upward plane and when a horse wins a distance three-year-old maiden, there is a bit of hope for them that they can take that next step and there are staying options. He is quite a promising horse.”


Baker said they would see how Granados comes through the run before deciding where to head next, but he did not rule out a tilt at the Listed VRC St Leger (2800m) at Flemington at the end of next month. – NZ Racing Desk
