One of the key support races on the Warwick Stakes Day program, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) drew 11 early entries with nominations now extended until Tuesday morning.

A key first-up nominee meanwhile is Sebring gelding Pitcrew who has won all three of their race starts to date.

With all three of their victories achieved on Slow or Heavy ground Pitcrew has a reputation as a mudlark and has been nominated for a number of Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival majors.

Their most likely aim will be the $1 million Group 1 The BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 12, for which they are currently rated a $51 roughie to win.

Waterhouse has also nominated for More Than Ready colt War out to break their maiden status.

There’s plenty of talent in the Up And Coming Stakes line-up at nomination stage with other notable hopes including John O’Shea’s resuming Kindergarten Stakes third placed Lonhro colt Diamond Oasis, last start Canterbury winning Charge Forward filly Dream Forward and Dowdstown Charlie.

David Payne’s Myboycharlie gelding Dowdstown Charlie was tested at Group 1 level during the winter but failed to stay in touch with their rivals when dead last in Brisbane’s JJ Atkins over the mile.

They resumed at Randwick on August 10 and looked much improved on a Slow (7) track over the 1200m when third to Eurozone in the Listed The Rosebud proving Payne’s decision to geld them a successful one.

“He has a win and third in three starts since we did it,” Payne told The Border Mail.

“He is probably just below the best three-year-olds but there are plenty of nice races for him.

“We’ll dodge the Golden Rose with him and take on those second-tier sort of races.”
