Waller holds Unforgotten hope
Champion trainer Chris Waller says there is still a chance Unforgotten could go in the Caulfield Cup, but is more likely to face off with stablemate Winx in the Cox Plate.
The Group 1-winning mare will run in Saturday's Caulfield Stakes (2000m) and Waller says he will only make a decision on her spring carnival path after the race.
The Cox Plate, the Caulfield Cup and the Myer Classic are options for the talented four-year-old and Waller will have a tough decision to make.
Victory on Saturday could make it easy and she is likely to take on super mare Winx in the Cox Plate.
"She is a very good horse but she is obviously racing against some seasoned weight for age campaigners here, however I feel she will certainly be in the finish," Waller said.
"Her run on Saturday will determine where she goes next, and there is an outside chance she could go to the Caulfield Cup a week later.
"She will probably head to either the Cox Plate if she wins on Saturday, or the Myer Classic if I thought she was looking for something easier to finish off the preparation.
"I couldn't be any happier with the way she has come through the Epsom Handicap, obviously she got a long way back and had a chequered passage but she finished the race off stylishly."
Unforgotten has already taken on Winx this campaign when she resumed in the Group 1 Winx Stakes in August, running sixth but doing her best work late as she finished less than four lengths off the great mare.
