Jason Coyle-trained gelding Scream Machine will be nominated for the the 2012 Caulfield Cup with the trainer believing the three-year-old gelding will improve with time.
Currently in the paddock following a reasonable winter campaign, Coyle said the son of Excites was a progressive type who will definitely play a part in the Spring Carnival.
“We’ll nominate for a couple of the majors,” Coyle said.
“Caulfield Cup, Melbourne Cup, we’ll throw all those sort of nominations in.”
The young stayer won a three-year-old event at Rosehill in late May before finishing mid-field in the Group 1 Queensland Derby.
Coyle said he was impressed with the horse’s effort during the winter and is tipping him to go on to bigger things.
“He’s been a progressive horse since he started with me in the stable,” he said.
“He hasn’t changed my view on that I thought he did well last preparation.”
Coyle said Scream Machine pulled up well following the Queensland Derby and will resume pre-training in the next few weeks.
Bought for $13,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions sale, the Sydney-based gelding has easily paid back his price tag with two victories from nine starts on his way to more than $65,000 in prize money.
Scream Machine is likely to be one of a number of horse’s to come out of the Brisbane Carnival to be nominated for the Caulfield Cup.
Leading trainer Peter Moody had a number of stars of the carnival, with Lights Of Heaven set for a big spring campaign after winning the Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup and the Brisbane Cup.
Fellow Moody-trained horses to come out of the Brisbane Carnival that could head to the Caulfield Cup include Queensland Derby winner Brambles who won three consecutive Brisbane races and Derby fifth place-getter Vatuvei.
