2013 Melbourne Cup Hope Fiorente to Trial at Randwick

He’s the horse Gai Waterhouse bought to win Australia’s biggest race and while he didn’t quite get there at his first try, Fiorente will get another chance in the 2013 Melbourne Cup.

The British import was beaten a length when second behind Green Moon on the first Tuesday of last November, his only start under Waterhouse to date.

The gelding has already been seen in an exhibition gallop this autumn and he will kick things up a gear at Randwick on Friday when he steps out for an official 1200m trial.

Fiorente is expected to have only a light autumn before being brought back in the spring for his second Melbourne Cup tilt.

Time would appear to be running out to gain a start in the $2.25 million BMW, which takes place over 2400m at Rosehill on April 6.

Fiorente is also entered for the Doncaster Mile for which he has been allocated 55kg.

Prior the arriving at Waterhouse’s Randwick stables the son of Monsun was trained by Sir Michael Stoute under whom he won the Group 2 Princess Of Wales’s Goldsmiths Stakes at Newmarket in 2012.

Waterhouse has a huge contingent of gallopers down to trial on Friday including Group 1 winner Fat Al.

The four-year-old winner of six of 12 starts won the Epsom Handicap in October but failed at his final spring starts in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington and the Railway Stakes in Perth.

Also trialling for Waterhouse is Silver Slipper winner Sweet Idea who is being tuned up for the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 6.

The Snitzel filly has won two of five starts and also finished second in the Magic Millions Classic.

An exciting day of action at Rosehill on Saturday with three Group 1s on the card and great odds can be found at bookmaker.com.au!
