Turn Me Loose may join Mongolian Khan among the starters at Caulfield on Saturday for Cambridge trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman.

While Mongolian Khan is all the rage for the Gr. 1 A$3 million BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m), Turn Me Loose could start in the Gr. 3 A$150,000 William Hill Moonga Stakes (1400m).

Turn Me Loose made his Australian debut at Flemington eight days ago in the Listed Paris Lane Stakes and went down a mere nose to Worthy Cause, to whom he was giving 3.5kg in weight.

“He went huge first-up and they ran a good time, too,” said Baker. “He’s done well since and I’m tossing up whether to run him at Caulfield on Saturday or wait for the Seymour Cup. It (the latter) is worth $150,000 and it’s a Listed race.”

The Seymour Cup will be run over 1600 metres at Seymour next Sunday week.”

The stable’s Wellington Cup winner Maygrove is also progressing well and is being aimed at one of the better country’s cups. His next mission is the Gr. 3 A$300,000 Geelong Cup (2400m) at Geelong on October 21.

“He went good last time,” said Baker. “He covered ground and fought on well for fourth (in the Gr. 3 Bart Cummings).

“He’s been fat and it’s taken a bit of racing to get him right. He’s fitter now.”

Maygrove was unplaced fresh-up at Caulfield last August, then finished seventh in the Listed Harry White Classic (2400m) before he ran fourth to Let’s Make Adeal in the Bart Cummings.
