Regan Bayliss back with Redkirk Warrior.

Co-trainer Tom Dabernig has confirmed that Regan Bayliss will reunite with superstar sprinter Redkirk Warrior in the Group 1 July Cup (1200m) at Newmarket on Saturday, July 14. 

Regan Bayliss missed the ride aboard Redkirk Warrior in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m), as Hayes, Dabernig and the owners elected to book superstar jockey Frankie Dettori. 

Redkirk Warrior finished tenth behind Merchant Navy in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes. Although Dabernig has no criticism of Dettori’s ride, the disappointing result prompted the return of Bayliss, who has won three Group 1’s on the horse.

Co-trainer Tom Dabernig spoke on RSN 927’s Racing Pulse on Wednesday. 

“It was disappointing for everyone for everyone involved. What we can put it down to is the overseas travel,” Dabernig said. 
 “You could see from the 500m mark, we were clearly in trouble. He didn’t put his run up. Clearly, the travelling had an effect.  
“After the race we did all the normal testing, of blood and scoping and it all came back normal and clear.   
"We decided clearly there's a bit of water to go under the bridge, he'll continue on at Newmarket with the possibility of running in the July Cup on the 14th at Newmarket, which is 1200m down the straight.  
“We can confirm that Regan Bayliss has been booked for the ride. There was no knock on Frankie Dettori, he was probably a victim of the horse not performing on the day.
  “Regan has an outstanding record on him, winning three Group 1’s."

Dabernig spoke about the future of Redkirk Warrior, noting that the ‘vague plan’ is to bring him back to Melbourne for the Darley Classic after the July Cup at Newmarket.
