Fighting Harada was an acceptor in the Listed Antler Luggage Plate at Flemington on Saturday, but instead he'll carry 59kg in the Holdfast Insurance Handicap at Morphettville.
A winner at Sale and Sandown before a spell, Fighting Harada has been luckless in two Sandown runs this campaign.
He finished second behind Smart Ellisim in a four-horse field on August 5 before beating one home against four opponents on August 22.
“I need to go where I think he can win because his last two runs have not been any benefit with regard to prize money or rating,” Price said.
“It's getting to the point where I'm running out of opportunities with him.
Like Fighting Harada, Tavisan is on a path towards the Caulfield Guineas on October 13.
“I've tried to keep him fresh as he's very fit,” Price said.
“Native Soldier looks the one to beat after his win the other day but it's an experience for him down the straight and it values him at a fair bit if he was to win.
“I think he's a Caulfield Guineas-type of horse so I can still run him in the Guineas Prelude (1400m) into the Guineas.”
