Killcareless is owned by colourful racing identity John Singleton, who bred the horse himself at his Strawberry Hill Stud, and has impressed in two recent barrier trials.

The rising three-year-old recorded a clear victory in her barrier trial debut on June 20 at Warwick Farm before coasting to another easy win, over a nine horse field, in a trial at Rosehill last week.

Trainer Bjorn Baker, who is preparing a horse for Singleton for the first time, clearly has a high opinion of the filly and believes she is a good winning chance at Rosehill on Saturday.

“She is a push button type of horse who does everything really well,” Baker told Racing Ahead.

“She has drawn well (in barrier four) and she should get a good run from there.

“She could lead or she could be last, she is just that sort of filly, and she goes in with every chance.”

While Baker is confident about the debutants chances on the weekend, he wasn’t as optimistic when asked if he believes Killcareless can be a player during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival.

“It’s very early on and it’s hard to know,” Baker said.

“It’s very much one stop at a time and with two-year-olds when they race you just hope they go well.

“We won’t get too carried away but at this stage she has done everything that she can.”

More Than Ready is the sire of thirteen separate Group 1 winners including champion mare More Joyous, also owned by Singleton, who was retired at the end of the 2013 Autumn Racing Carnival with eight Group 1 victories to her name.
