Ferrando is capable of running the time required to be a major player in Saturday’s A$1 million Gr.1 Darley Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville if he gets the right conditions, according to co-trainer Graeme Rogerson.

“He can break 1.08, but he has to have a really dry track,” the Tuhikaramea horseman said.

Ferrando finished a respectable fifth in the Gr.3 McKay Stakes (1100m) in his Australian debut a fortnight ago and hasn’t missed a beat since.

“He’s flying and to be fair to him the other day he hadn’t raced for seven weeks and it was a soft track,” Rogerson said.

In early betting with Neds, Ferrando is $41.  Neds New Clients: $500 first deposit match *
