Snow Patrol will be trying to turn a luckless spring into a profitable autumn when he launches an Australian Guineas campaign at Caulfield.

The Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr-trained gelding is being aimed at the Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington next month.

But first, Snow Patrol will contest the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

Snow Patrol scored a debut over 1300m at Sandown last August before a 'hard watch' when the three-year-old finished third at Sandown behind Southport Tycoon a month later.

The Price and Kent team pressed the button once more with Snow Patrol finishing out of the money at Flemington in late September before being turned out for a break.

Price said Snow Patrol had returned in good order this campaign and enters Saturday's first-up assignment off a win in a Cranbourne jump-out on January 30.

"He's going very well, and we're hoping to get him into the Australian Guineas," Price said.

"He's a nice horse that should have won his first two starts.

"The second start was a hard watch then subsequently, his last run, I was trying to get back the bad luck that he had at start number two.

"He ran the race of a horse that had probably had enough, but he didn't have much joy in that race either.

"So, I'll get a guide what to do with him after Saturday, whether we run in the Australian Guineas."

Price said if the decision was made to head to the Australian Guineas on March 2, then Snow Patrol would join stablemate, the unbeaten Otago in the Group 1 contest.

He said the three weeks would be ideal for Snow Patrol between runs while Otago would have his lead-up run in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday week.

"Otago trialled very well at Cranbourne on Monday and will run in the CS Hayes and two weeks later to the Guineas," Price said.
