Maher's confidence in the colt is evident, especially considering Griff's impressive track record as a three-year-old, which included three consecutive victories culminating in a remarkable win in the prestigious $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in his last outing.
“He's come back well, he has furnished a little bit,” said Maher.
“He's going to campaign in Sydney and probably head to the Guineas at Randwick.”
With the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) slated as the primary target for Griff, Maher is also keeping an open mind about potential race options.
