Stan Fox 2012 Victoria Derby Stepping Stone for Fiveandahalfstar

After a credible run at Canterbury on Wednesday, stayer-in-the-making Fiveandahalfstar will back-up in this Saturday’s Stan Fox Stakes at Rosehill as they continue on a campaign targeting the Victoria Derby 2012 in Melbourne at the end of the year.

Anthony Cummings’ Hotel Grand three-year-old may still be a maiden after 10 starts but their trainer is confident this season Fiveandahalfstar can progress into a genuine chance for the $1.5 million Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington Racecourse on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Saturday November 3.

Yesterday Fiveandahalfstar ran sixth to Rebel Dane in a 1250m handicap at Canterbury, their performance in which was enough to convince Cummings they’re worthy of a shot at Golden Rose runner-up Albrecht and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Kabayan in the $250,000 Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday.

“I’ll back him up (in the Stan Fox). I was really pleased with his run today,” Cummings said on Wednesday.

“He got back and was still a bit green. He’s still got his L-Plates on but he’s a really nice horse with good ability.

“He’s still learning and still getting fit and I think the back-up at this stage of his preparation will certainly help him play a part in the Spring Carnival in Melbourne.

“He was still a bit on the new side today.”

2012 Victoria Derby nominations were released earlier this week, Fiveandahalfstar one of 80 three-year-olds making up the early entries for the spring classic.

“He’s nominated for the Derby and he’s a big, strong gelding and is coping with the whole deal so I would have no hesitation in running a horse like that in the Derby if he shows his form warrants it,” Cummings said.

In the Stan Fox Stakes odds for this weekend Fiveandahalfstar is a $61 roughie, markets led by the Peter Snowden-trained Albrecht ($2).

Whether it is the Rosehill races this Saturday or the futures Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival Group 1’s you’re after the odds on, we suggest you head to who have all your spring season betting covered.
