Instrumentalist May Forgo Spell for Adelaide

Currently displaying undoubtable career-best form, talented stayer Instrumentalist is eyeing a possible run in the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) despite stable representative Justine Hales suggesting a stint in the spelling paddock was likely following a strong victory in the Listed Mornington Cup yesterday.

Hunting down pre-post favourite Prince Of Penzance and sustaining a perfectly-timed sprint to finish yesterday’s Mornington feature ahead of Travolta and Macedonian, Instrumentalist continued his brilliant yet under-the-radar run of form that has now delivered four wins and three places since October.

While not committing to any plans thus far, trainer Chris Waller told TVN today that a return to the spelling paddock could still be on the cards, however a trip to Adelaide may also occur before a rest over winter.

“He will either go to the paddock or we’ll go to Adelaide with him” Waller said.

In what became a true test of endurance, the Mornington Cup highlighted the strengths of several un-expected challengers; with fast-finishing Macedonian offering a pre-post quote of $151.

“He was strong and brave yesterday and it was a good result for everyone involved” Waller added.

Along with the $210,000 winner’s check, the progressive stayer gained a priceless entry into the 2014 Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) in October, with Waller set to map a Spring campaign geared toward the renowned event.

Beginning his racing career under the care of British trainer JR Best, Instrumentalist closed his English career in style with a comfortable win in the Wolverhampton Handicap in October 2012.

The Amadeus Wolf gelding has progressed through the levels of racing in impressive fashion since debuting on Australian courses in April 2013, and is now offered the opportunity to make a memorable impact on one of the country’s most famous and sought after races.
