Snowden hopeful King can return to throne

Peter Snowden will continue to push forward with a Melbourne campaign for King's Legacy following his disappointing performance in the Caulfield Guineas.

Snowden and co-trainer son Paul were left scratching their heads after the talented three-year-old failed to fire a shot in the Group 1, with a subsequent vet examination finding no abnormalities.

Connections will now move on to the G1 Cantala Stakes at Flemington on October 31.

"We are going to push on and reassess him," Snowden said.

"He will probably have a jumpout here at Flemington (next) week, then we will reassess. But at this point of time we are heading towards the Cantala."

Snowden described King's Legacy's Caulfield Guineas run as 'disappointing'.

"The race didn't pan out, we were further back than we should have been. He pulled quite hard back where he was," he said.

"He didn't get a lot of room early in the race, but late in the race where we did get room, he was average.

"We can't find a fault with him, his bloods are good.

"It certainly wasn't him, not at all. He has never ever run a bad race, ever.

"We can't put our finger on why. The horse pulled up well."
