But the colt will need to prove his fitness after returning to scale following Wednesday's win lame in his right foreleg.
Native Soldier had his price slashed from $6 to $3.50 after his emphatic victory in quick time but watching the colt return to scale post-race, trainer Darren Weir noticed the colt's action was wrong.
“He looks a little lame,” Weir said.
“We'll have a look and see how he is when he cools down and we'll get a better indication tomorrow.”
Racing Victoria stewards reported the colt was lame and also suffering heat stress.
Native Soldier carved out the 1200m in 1:08.57 after trailing the leader Runson.
Weir said he had seen improvement in Native Soldier's racing manners since he he was a spring three-year-old.
“He's got plenty of upside. One day he'll win a good race over a mile,” Weir said.
“Since he's had the little break, his two runs back he's relaxed very well whereas before he'd jump and go a little fierce.”
