Peter Snowden is confident that his promising three-year-old Galah will prove hard to beat in the $350,000 Sandown Guineas this Saturday.

The young colt has won four of his five career starts, including the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes on Victoria Derby Day.

While Galah has shown talent and ability during the spring, assistant trainer Paul Snowden believes he is only going to get better with age and experience.

“I think in the autumn and even further down the track he’s going to be a better horse,” Snowden said.

“He’s still learning, he’s a bit dumb but he’s a lovely horse to look at and whatever he does this preparation is just a stepping stone for him I feel.”

Snowden is hopeful Galah will prove too good for his competition at Sandown this weekend.

“We’ll just go back to the way he was at Caulfield and hope that we can get a good win on Saturday,” Snowden said.

“We’ve changed his work load around a little bit.

“We haven’t worked him as hard (as) he was a little bit dour in the Carbine Club and I think you will see an improved horse on Saturday.”
