Grunt Horseform, a four-year-old entire has finished fifth and eighth in the PB Lawrence (Gr 2, 1400m) and Memsie Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) respectively so far this campaign, but Price is hopeful of a better showing this weekend from the Australian Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) hero.


"On Saturday, back to the big Flemington mile I think Grunt will show up and I'm looking forward to it," he said.

"I think from here given the races get out in distance, you'll start to see him improve.

"To take on those seasoned horses... I think it's a little bit daunting, but this is the job so that's what we're doing and we'll get a good measure on Saturday of exactly how he is going.”
