has added to its arsenal following the impressive all-the-way win of stable newcomer Hawkshot in the at Caulfield.

Hawksot arrived at Lindsay Park's Euroa stable earlier in the week, a transferee from disqualified trainer .

Lindsay Park became the third stable to win with former Weir-trained horses after Yogi won for Ciaron Maher and and scoring for Chris Waller.

Hawkshot was explosive in winning Saturday's Group Two race over 1400m with Mark Zahra declaring the 1600m of the Australian Guineas at on March 2 won't pose a problem.

“Weiry and I spent four runs riding him quietly getting him to relax,” Zahra said.

“He's with Lindsay Park now and we took him straight to the front. He relaxed beautifully and was never going to lose.

“The mile won't be any issue.”

Sent off a $6.50 chance, Hawkshot kicked clear on straightening in recording a 3-3/4 length win from Deal Maker ($6.50) with another former Weir runner ($4.60) a length away third.

Co-trainer said the stable relied heavily on Zahra as they endeavour to learn more about the gelding.

“It was important the input from Mark as the horse has only been in our yard since Monday,” Hayes said.

“He came to us looking a million dollars and he ran very well and on that he looks a genuine chance in the Guineas.”

Hawkshot had his price slashed from $26 to $8 and will be joined on a Guineas path by Lindsay Park stablemates Good ‘N' Fast, eighth on Saturday, Mickey Blue Eyes and More Sundays.
