MASTER trainer Mick Price has identified Warmonger as the pick of his trio of three-year-olds which will back up in the South Australian Derby at Morphettville a week after they contested the Chairman’s Stakes.

Price and Michael Kent Junior won the SA Derby two years ago with Jungle Magnate after he also contested the Chairman’s Stakes.

Last week Tulsa King finished fourth, Warmonger finished fifth and Shinjuku seventh in the Chairman’s Stakes.

Price said he had taken the blinkers off Warmonger as he wanted him to settle better in his races.

“Hopefully Damian Lane can get a good spot on him in the early stages and he doesn’t get spat out the back,” Price said on RSN.

Price said last week Warmonger got too far off the leaders and then got taken wide on the turn so it was a good run.

“He’s the best of my three. If he gets a nice run he will be there in the finish. I’m very confident he’ll be there in the finish.”Warmonger is a $6.50 chance with PlayUp.
