2013 Melbourne Cup Hope Fiorente Likely for Hollindale Stakes

2013 Melbourne Cup fancy Fiorente is likely to have a one-start mission at the Gold Coast on Saturday week for the Group 2 2013 Hollindale Stakes (1800m).

The Gai Waterhouse-trained import is entered for the All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick this weekend but it is becoming increasingly likely he will skip the race in favour of heading to Queensland.

Wherever he runs, it will be Fiorente’s first start since finishing second on Australian debut in last year’s Melbourne Cup.

In a sign that the Hollindale will win out over the All Aged, Gold Coast-based part-owner Luke Henderson suggested the 1800m race is a more suitable option.

“Fiorente can win the Hollindale – there is no way he could win the All Aged because the distance is just too short for him,” Henderson told News Limited.

“He will be spelled straight away after just the one run and we will then look at the best program going towards the Melbourne Cup.”

Henderson said the primary goal this year will again be the Melbourne Cup for what he currently occupies the fifth line of betting at $17.

If Fiorente makes the trip to Queensland he is expected to face some strong competition including Caulfield Cup placegetter Lights Of Heaven and Group 1 winner Solzhenitsyn.

Lights Of Heaven was second in last year’s Hollindale and was a Queensland winter star when also finishing second in the Doomben Cup and winning the Eagle Farm and Brisbane Cups.

Solzhenitsyn was scratched from Saturday’s Doncaster Mile due to a wet track but earlier in the autumn ran a strong third behind Pierro and More Joyous in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes.
