Jimmy Choux on Track For Cox Plate Tilt

Kiwi trainer John Bary has confirmed that Rosehill Guineas winner Jimmy Choux will head to Melbourne in the spring for a tilt at the Group One Cox Plate.

Bary said that he was happy with the way the multiple Group One winner had returned from a spell.

“He’s had two weeks back in the stable and is looking great. We’re hopeful of a big spring and looking maybe to attract an invitation to the Hong Kong international meeting in December,” Bary said.

“He’s spelled fantastically. He’s so well. He’s nice and fat and chubby at the moment but he hasn’t got top heavy which is great.

“At this stage he’ll have two or perhaps three runs heading into the Cox plate.”

Bary also confirmed that he would skip traditional spring weight for age events, the Yalumba and the Toorak, instead preferring to race the rising four year old at New Zealand.

Bary also said that he leave at least one month in between the runs of Jimmy Choux after he failed in the AJC Derby in April, because of the quick back up from the Rosehill Guineas.

Jimmy Choux will resume in one of New Zealand’s premier weight for age events, the Mudgway Stakes (1400m) on August 27. Bary will then give him a month off before he starts in the Spring Classic (2040m). He will then be floated to Australia for the Cox Plate.

Jimmy Choux is expected to be a certainty for the New Zealand three year old of the year award after taking multiple Group One’s including the NZ Derby, NZ 2000 Guineas, the Levin Classic and the Rosehill Guineas. He is also expected to be a strong contender for New Zealand horse of the year, after winning seven of ten starts this racing season.

Emirates Stakes winner Wall Street will also have a very similar preparation for the Cox Plate. Trainer Jeff Lynds has confirmed that Wall Street will defend his crown in the Group One Spring Classic at Hastings before heading to Melbourne for the Cox Plate.

Jimmy Choux is currently rated a $13.00 chance for the 2011 Cox Plate, while Wall Street is quoted at $26.00.
