Newcastle trainer PaulPerry believes theTulloch Stakes on Saturday at Rosehill should have Hollywood Mo primed for the group 1 n Derby on April 1.

Hollywood Mo, seventh in the Rosehill Guineas last Saturday on a heavy 10,was among acceptances for the group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000 metres) on Wednesday. Perry also has The Mission in the group 3 Schweppervescence (1400m) and Wouldn’t It Be Nice in the group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m), where Kris Lees has Dal Cielo, Danish Twist and Savoureux.

Lees, meanwhile, has Beretta, Knit ‘N’ Purl, Star Reflection and Fashion Sniptz in the Kembla Grange Provincial Championships qualifier on Thursday.

Perry said Hollywood Mo had“pulled up super” from his effort in the Guineas, where he improved from last on the home turn in the tough conditions.

“He travelledgood and he needed the run, it will only benefit him,” Perry said.

“He should be more competitivethis week than the run before and it should top him off for the Derby anyway.”

The Mission was fourth in the Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) last start to finish short of a run in the Golden Slipper. Perry expected the Choisir colt, which isnominated for the Inglis Sires’ on April 1, to feature prominently on Saturday.

“The 1400 should suit and he’s dropped down in grade so he should run a nice race,” he said.

Lees accepted with Slow Pace but not Singing for the group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m).

Also, Country Champioships 2016 winner Clearly Innocent was an impressive victor in his first hit-out for Lees in trials at Wyong on Wednesday.

Clearly Innocent has switched from Greg Bennett’s stables after the Scone trainer’s decision to take up a job in Queensland.
