Fiorente Impressing Ahead of 2013 Melbourne Cup

The horse charged with spearheading top Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse’s 2013 Melbourne Cup team continues to impress in the early stages of his preparation.

British import Fiorente nearly delivered Waterhouse her first ever Melbourne Cup win when second to Green Moon last year and he will again be aimed at the $6.2 million race.

The five-year-old was given a 1400m hit-out at Randwick on Tuesday, with stable jockey Nash Rawiller glowing in his report to the hall of fame trainer.

Nash described Fiorente as fantastic,” Waterhouse said on her website.

“[He] worked over 1400m and is ticking along beautifully. The import is in the top five in betting in all spring classics but the Cup is no doubt his major goal.”

In a desperate effort to achieve success in the race that has continued to elude her, Waterhouse will aim a strong team of imports at the Melbourne Cup.

Also with the prestigious spring feature on their radar are former British gallopers Carlton House and Michelangelo.

Carlton House was also given a spin at Randwick on Tuesday and is now settled in Australia after failing in the Ajax Stakes in March.

“Carlton House continues to tick along towards the spring with a nice gallop this morning over 1400m. [Trackwork rider] Mark Newnham mentioned that the Queen’s horse felt great,” Waterhouse said.

Michelangelo is yet to be seen on raceday in Australia but trialled at Randwick in April. The four-year-old was a Listed winner in the UK and also placed behind Encke and Camelot in the Group St Leger Stakes at Doncaster last September.

The trip all feature prominently in early Melbourne Cup betting, with Fiorente considered a $10 chance and Michelangelo and Carlton House at $18 and $26 repsectively.
