In-form stable Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young are expecting their talented three-year-old The Holy One to rise to the mark again when he steps out at The Valley on Saturday.
The colt by Tavistock is looking for three victories in a row after a dominant maiden win at Echuca, followed by a strong victory at Sandown in three-year-old Benchmark 70 company.
"He put a maiden away nicely and then stepped up at Sandown and did that quite dominantly as well," Busuttin said.
"It's a good field as you'd expect at this time of the year, but he certainly looks in there amongst them."
Nominated for the Caulfield Guineas (1600m), Busuttin is confident that he'll get better the further he goes but is hopeful his colt can match it against other Guineas hopefuls.
"He's a lovely colt, nice natured, probably on pedigree and type there's going to be sharper horses over the mile than him, but he'll end up over further ground," he said.
"As a colt we've got to have a little look at those type of race (Caulfield Guineas), but we won't get ahead of ourselves."
Busuttin and Young continued their strong recent form with Pierrocity going back-to-back with a nice win at Sandown on Wednesday.
The result meant that their stable has a 24 per cent winning strike-rate from their past 50 runners.
