Today we’ll get a quick Spring racing update on Sydney’s premier trainer, Chris Waller.

D’Argento

Has had two trials now and should be back at the track very soon. One of hundreds of early nominations for the Cox Plate.

Best available early odds:
Caulfield Cup: $34
Cox Plate: $31
Melbourne Cup: $101

Egg Tart

Also has a nomination thrown in for the Cox Plate, but all quiet on the Egg Tart front other than that.

Best available early odds:
Caulfield Cup: $41
Cox Plate: $101
Melbourne Cup: $101

The Autumn Sun

Winner of the Group 1 JJ Atkins in June and could be set for a big spring. Has been nominated for the Golden Rose and Caulfield Guineas, attracting early interest for both, and the Cox Plate. Is yet to trial.

Best available early odds:
Golden Rose: $8
Caulfield Guineas: $14
Cox Plate $51

Unforgotten

Trialled alongside Winx in this week’s “super trial” at Rosehill, which also included Ace High, Alizee, D’argento, Hartnell, Libran, Single Gaze and Who Shot Thebarman. Also nominated for the Cox Plate, and shouldn’t be far away from a return.

Best available early odds:
Caulfield Cup: $21
Melbourne Cup: $61

Who Shot Thebarman (NZ)

Sydney Cup winner was back at the trials this week. Connections have mapped out a tentative plan: another trial, followed by the George Main Stakes (September 15th), the Hill Stakes (September 29th), the St Leger (October 13th) and the Moonee Valley Gold Cup (October 27th). If he ticks those boxes, it’s onto another Melbourne Cup.

Best available early odds:
Caulfield Cup: $101
Melbourne Cup: $101

Winx

The champion is back, cruising to third in the super trial this week. The prep should look very similar to last year, kicking off with the newly-named (and newly Group 1) Winx Stakes at Randwick on August 18th. Of course, all eyes are on the tilt for an unprecedented fourth Cox Plate.

Best available early odds:
Cox Plate: $1.70

Zousain

Ran second behind The Autumn Sun in the JJ Atkins, and Zousain has also been nominated for the Golden Rose, Caulfield Guineas and Cox Plate.

Best available early odds:
Golden Rose: $26
Caulfield Guineas: $26
