STAR Tasmanian three-year-old Admiral has taken no harm from his overnight trip by sea to Melbourne leaving his trainer Barry Campbell confident the gelding will be at the top of his game in the Group 1 $500,000 Australian Guineas over 1600m at Flemington tomorrow (Saturday).

Admiral goes into the Australian Guineas on the back of an emphatic win over The Cleaner in the $100,000 weight-for-age George Adams Plate (1600m) in Launceston last Wednesday.

Admiral is a winner of nine of his 12 starts and is quoted at $16 to win the Australian Guineas.

Campbell travelled on the Spirit of Tasmania to be close to his stable star during the journey.
