Murray Baker is thrilled with the build-up of Turn Me Loose.

Triple Group One winner Turn Me Loose is in terrific order ahead of his first-up run in tomorrow night’s Gr.2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

His Cambridge co-trainer Murray Baker reported the five-year-old Iffraaj entire had travelled to Australia well and settled in quickly to his stabling at Flemington.

“Everything’s fine with him. He’ll run in this race and then go on to the Orr and the Futurity,” said Baker.

“Friday’s race will probably be too short for him, but the mission is the other two races. He ran fourth in the Orr last year then won the Futurity.

“He’s working well and looks a treat.”

The Gr.1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) is at Caulfield on February 11, a fortnight before the Gr.1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) on the same track.
