Victoria Derby winner Tarzino will have to pass a vet’s test on Saturday morning before being cleared to run in the Group 1 $3m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield.

Trainer Mick Price informed Racing Victoria Stewards that Tarzino had slight swelling in his near side front leg and they issued a statement via twitter that the four year old would have to undergo a veterinary inspection on race morning.

“Tarzino -Slight swelling in the left front trainer and vet will assess again in the morning,” Racing Victoria Stewards tweeted.

Tarzino is rated a $31 chance for the Caulfield Cup with Ladbrokes.com.au and has been struggling to find his three year old form that netted him two Group 1 trophies.

During his three year old season Tarzino claimed the Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington during the 2015 Melbourne Spring Carnival and then during the Sydney Autumn Carnival won the Group 1 $600,000 Sky Racing Rosehill Guineas (2000m) at Rosehill.

Tarzino has failed to impress at four Spring Carnival runs which included a first up eighth to Black Heart Bart in the Group 1 $500,000 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 27 followed by a tenth to Palentino in the Group 1 $500,000 PFD Food Services Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on September 10.

At his next start Tarzino was always well back when eighth to Black Heart Bart again in the Group 1 $500,000 Hyland Race Colours Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield on September 24 and then finished midfield when sixth to Hartnell in the Group 1 $500,000 Yellowglen Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on October 2.

Regular rider Craig Newitt is booked to ride Tarzino who has drawn nicely at barrier four in the eighteen horse Caulfield Cup field.

Crown Oaks winner Jameka sits at the top of the Caulfield Cup market order at $3.70 at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of the Darren Weir trained Real Love and English stayer Scottish at $7.50 and German stayer Articus at $9.50

Market order for the Caulfield Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3.70 Jameka, $7.50 Real Love, Scottish, $9.50 Articus, $12 Sir Isaac Newton, $13 Exospheric, $14 Sacred Master, $15 Sir John Hawkwood, $17 Tally, $26 Preferment, Our Ivanhowe, $31 Tarzino, $41 Set Square, Pemberley, $51 De Little Engine, $61 Almoonqith, $81 Go Dreaming, $151 Vengeur Masque.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!|

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!|

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!|

    When someone writes an post he/she keeps the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it. So that’s why this post is great. Thanks!|

    Currently it seems like Movable Type is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?|

  18. Umanizzare presidios

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  19. Carlos Eduardo Veiga

    Fantastic blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that
    cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like
    to be a part of group where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!
