The Anthony Freedman-trained Super Seth (Dundeel) has been ruled out of Saturday’s Randwick Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) with an elevated temperature and abnormal blood picture. The only horse to beat Alligator Blood (All Too Hard) when triumphing by a nose in last October’s Caulfield Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m), Super Seth was the $2.70 favourite to build on his recent neck second in the Futurity Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) at the weekend.
However, the Randwick Guineas market is now headed by Shadow Hero (Pierro) at $4.40. The Mark Newnham-trained three-year-old sits just in front of Castelvecchio (Dundeel) at $5.50, with that duo having finished fifth and sixth on their respective returns in the Hobartville Stakes (Gr 2, 1400m) on February 22.
