Lord Arthur ARCLord Arthur Queensland Derby Bound

Trainer Murray Baker has confirmed that recent Group winner Lord Arthur will venture to Queensland on a two race mission which will include the A$150,000 Grand Prix Stakes Gr.3 over 2200m and his ultimate goal of the A$600,000 Channel 7 Queensland Derby Gr.1 over 2400m at Eagle Farm on the 8 June.

From the stable of Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman, Lord Arthur was very impressive when coming from well back in the running to score an emphatic victory in the Valachi Downs Championship Stakes Gr.2 at Ellerslie last Saturday and a similar performance would see him among the leading chances for the last Derby of the season.

The half-brother to Bonneval by Camelot, Lord Arthur has always had ability but it has only been the last month or so that he has started to mature physically, and the manner in which he dealt to his opposition at Ellerslie would indicate there is plenty more ahead for the three-year-old gelding both in Queensland and in his next preparation as a four-year-old.
