Leading Melbourne trainer Peter Moody was forced to put smart sprinter Club Command’s comeback on hold after the five year old was showing signs of a slight throat infection.

Club Command was ready to resume in the Listed $100,000 Razor Sharp Handicap (1150m) on the Kensington track at Randwick on Saturday but the minor setback gave connections no choice but to scratch from tomorrow’s race.

The Commands gelding hadn’t raced since winning over 1410m at Flemington on June 22 and two recent Randwick barrier trial wins would have guaranteed favouritism for the sprint.

A routine stable check discovered mucous in the throat of Club Command but Moody is not overly concerned and will select another suitable race to kick off his Summer campaign in the coming weeks.

“We’ll find another race for him, he’ll be right,” Moody told Racing Network.

Club Command has earned almost $290,000 for his connections from six wins and six placings from thirteen starts.

The scratching of Club Command has left the Chris Waller trained Heart Testa at the top of the market order at $3 with Aeronautical the second favourite at $5, Safeguard at $6 and last start Rosehill winner Zaratone on the next line of betting at $8.

Waller believes Heart Testa can turn the tables on Zaratone after running second to the Bjorn Baker trained grey at Rosehill two weeks ago.

Heart Testa meets Zaratone 2kgs better off and has drawn favourably at five while the top weight has to jump from the outside of the twelve horses field.

“We have good gate and the speed in the race is drawn wide,” Waller said.

“They will be working hard to cross us that is for sure.

“The horse is racing well, he came through that last start no problems, and he deserves a Listed win next to his name.”

Heart Testa rounded off his Razor Sharp preparation on Tuesday morning working with stable mate Disciple over 800m in 53.90s, running home the final 400m in 24.40s.
