Cox Plate 2012 Plan Becomes Clearer for Waterhouse Pair

Gai Waterhouse has already confirmed that both More Joyous and Pierro will be aimed at the 2012 Cox Plate but how they will get there and who will ride them has become clearer.

Pierro

Gai Waterhouse is hoping to book Craig Williams to ride Pierro in the Cox Plate

Glamour More Joyous was impressive yesterday when winning a trial at Randwick in comfortable fashion and is likely to resume in the next few weeks in Sydney.

Waterhouse was thrilled with her trial performance and said she would speak with owner John Singleton before deciding exactly which race she will start in.

Stable jockey Nash Rawiller was on board for yesterday’s 1050m trial and he said he was “delighted” with how the eight-time Group 1 winner worked.

Rawiller will remain on More Joyous for her entire spring campaign, leaving the Cox Plate ride on star colt Pierro open.

Waterhouse said yesterday she was hoping to get globetrotting jockey Craig Williams to ride the Golden Slipper winner who will have an exhibition gallop this weekend.

Despite speculation Waterhouse would skip the $1 million Golden Rose on September 15 with the unbeaten colt, she said she had not ruled out the three-year-old feature out.

“It’s on the agenda, using as a stepping stone to where I want to go,” Waterhouse said.

The Randwick-based trainer was full of her typical praise for Pierro, saying the son of Lonhro is “the best three-year-old in the country by so far it’s not funny.”

Apart from the Cox Plate, Pierro will also be targeted at the Caulfield Guineas where he may face a rematch with All Too Hard.

The pair currently sit on the second and third line of the bookmaker.com.au Cox Plate market, with Pierro ($10.00) slightly ahead of his older stablemate ($11.00).
