Futurity Stakes winner All Too Hard will back up in this Saturday’s Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) before he continues his autumn campaign in Sydney.
The 3YO shown a brilliant turn of foot to blitz the Futurity field and will be at very short odds to win the Guineas.
And the quinella of the Autumn Classic, Fiveandahalfstar and Super Cool will go to the Australian Cup (2000m) and bypass the Australian Guineas.
Meanwhile, Chris Waller will look for a new rider for New Zealander Sacred Wells in the Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday. Regular rider Leith Innes got successive suspensions and stewards have not granted him stay of proceedings.
