If Danny O'Brien been able to plan Grinzinger Star's seven days leading into the South Australian Derby, he probably wouldn't have scripted what the ever-improving stayer has experienced.
After a severe buffeting on the home turn at Flemington last Saturday, in what was his final lead-up run, he then came up with 14 when the barriers were drawn for this weekend's race.
O'Brien confessed to being mildly concerned at seeing what unfolded last Saturday but had been put at ease by his condition in the days since and was not overly fussed by drawing in the second half of the field.
"He's a tough horse, so it didn't really knock him around," he said. "It obviously wasn't ideal last weekend, but he's to turn up in good shape for us on Saturday.
"I don't think the barrier will worry him. It's a 2500-metre race and he'll be in the back half of the field anyway, so don't think it'll be a problem."
After holding down the third line of Derby betting before last weekend's race, Grinzinger Star is out to $13 in BetEasy's market, with last weekend's dual Group 1 winner, Damien Oliver, going back aboard."
