WARRNAMBOOL trainer Aaron Purcell believes imported galloper Kings Full is over the odds in a restricted race over 1600 metres at Caulfield on Saturday.
Bookmakers rate Kings Full, who is having his third start for Purcell, a $100 chance in the early betting markets for the race.
"I don't think he's a $100 shot," the group one-winning trainer said.
"His two runs in Australia have been not too bad. He's improved on the back of those two runs.
"Kings Full has been a hot head but he's starting to turn it around. His two runs here have been in races over 1400 and 1600 metres.
"Saturday's race is over 1600 metres but he's going to be better over more ground. I think he's a rough place chance for Saturday. He's well over the odds.
"The long-term goal is a jumping career. We've schooled him up over the jumps and he goes alright at the caper but we'll see how he goes in flat races over a bit of ground before looking at our jumps career."
Talented apprentice Will Price has his first ride on Kings Fall on Saturday. Price can claim 1.5kgs which will bring the lightly raced six-year-old in on 57kgs.
Local trainers Lindsey Smith and Maddi Raymond have runners on Caulfield's nine race program.
Smith saddles up Ladies Of London, Corner Pocket and Riding The Wave. Corner Pocket is going for his fourth win while Pacodali is Raymond's runner. Ciaron Maher, who trains in partnership with David Eustace accepted with eight runners.
