Newcastle Form To Stack Up At Randwick

Racing Online - Horse Racing News - Newcastle Form To Stack Up At Randwick

The form from the Group Three Spring Stakes at Newcastle has already been franked by the success of third placegetter in the at Flemington.

The two Godolphin colts who finished in front of the -trained filly at Newcastle now head to the Group One at Randwick on Saturday.

Aramayo, the winner at Newcastle, goes to the 2000m-race for his first start since the Spring Stakes (1600m) while Cloak will be trying to improve on his unplaced effort in last week's Dulcify Quality at Randwick.

The Dulcify was won by Lindsay Park's Mickey Blue Eyes who is also set to back up seven days later.

The -trained winner Thinkin' Big is the $3.50 favourite for the Spring Champion while Aramayo is a $7 chance.

Cloak is at $51 after his failure and is also entered in the Listed UCI Stakes (1800m) at Flemington on Saturday for which he is at $23.

“He needs to be better behaved and more focused if he's to perform at his best,” trainer said.

“He cost himself his chance at the start last time through a lack of concentration.”

Cummings is more upbeat about Aramayo.

“He's kept building up in condition in the past three weeks,” he said.

“He's full of himself and enjoyed a strong gallop on the turf on morning to bring his fitness levels right up to where they need to be.”

“The step up in distance will suit him and his pedigree is really backing up his performance as we get to these Classic distances.”

Aramayo is on the third line of betting at $13 for the (2500m) on November 3 with Thinkin' Big the $7 favourite alongside winner The Autumn Sun who is unlikely to run.

Waterhouse has indicated Thinkin' Big could head to the Melbourne Cup if he can win the Derby.
