Jockey Tommy Berry is confident that spring star Glencadam Gold will be in career best form when he returns for the autumn racing carnival.
Glencadam Gold was last year’s favourite for the $2.5 million Caulfield Cup, however, the five-year-old failed to finish better than 15th.
However, he fought back to place a gallant sixth in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup in his most recent start.
And Berry feels that we haven’t yet seen exactly what Glencadam Gold has to offer.
“It is freakish how he has come back,” Berry said.
“The first day I saw him walk into the yard and he looked a big gross horse with gloss all over his coat.
“It is not how horses usually look after a tough Melbourne Cup preparation.”
The Refuse To Bend gelding has won six of his 14 race starts and has earned more than $600,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
The European local has had just six starts in Australia, winning his first four.
Trained by Gai Waterhouse, Glencadam Gold is said to be adapting to his home very nicely.
“He is a lot more relaxed, he is dropping his head lower when he gallops and isn’t as fierce,” Berry said.
“I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t improve this time in.”
Glencadam Gold will have his first taste of racing when he lines up for a barrier trial at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Thursday.
