Our Century's autumn-winter campaign was halted by a virus but once he was fit again, Waugh decided to give him a couple of trials and send him to Rosehill on Saturday for the November Topaz.
“He is a lovely horse and a genuine stayer,” Waugh said.
“It's great to get him back. He's has been working well and I've been really pleased by his trials.
“He's not 100 per cent fit yet and we will look to bring him back here in a fortnight for a 2400 metre race.”
He has had four starts for Waugh for two wins, the other being the Listed Lord Mayor's Cup (2000m) in May.
Waugh said Our Century was likely to have a short spring-summer campaign, with richer autumn races in mind.
