Kiwi trainer Stephen Marsh doesn’t consider his Brisbane Cup winner Chocante to be any threat to super star mare Winx when they clash in the Group 2 $250,000 Tattersalls Club Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

Chocante will be having his first run back after leading all of the way to win the Group 2 $300,000 Evergreen Turf Brisbane Cup (2200m) at Doomben in June during the Brisbane Winter Carnival and has been installed as one of the outsiders of the field at $51 at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Chris Waller trained Winx is chasing her nineteenth win in succession and once again has been listed as the $1.08 dominant favourite.

Marsh said that the trip to Brisbane from New Zealand during the winter has helped the five year old mature greatly and he would like to see him doing his best work over the concluding stages.

“It’s a big step up. We can’t hide the fact it wasn’t the strongest of Brisbane Cup fields,” Marsh AAP.

“Where he finishes doesn’t worry me too much. I just want to see him hitting the line doing his best work and looking a bit of an eye-catcher late.

“We’re not in dream world thinking we’re going to pounce over the top of Winx.”

Chocante’s main Sydney Spring Carnival target will be the Group 1 $750,000 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on September 30 and a win there would tempt Marsh to continue on to Melbourne for the Group 1 $6.25m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 7.

“That (The Metropolitan) looks like a perfect race for him,” Marsh said.

“That’ll be the crossroads for us, whether we head to Melbourne or not.

“It’s the first horse I’ve never nominated for the Melbourne Cup. It’s exciting but we won’t go if we’re just making up the numbers.”

Chocante has drawn barrier nine in the twelve horse Chelmsford Stakes field with Rory Hutchings taking the ride.
