Waller has built up Comin’ Through’s distances in his three Autumn Carnival runs over 1200m, 1400m and 1600m and his performance will determine where he heads to over ‘The Championships’.

A strong performance over the 2000m could see Comin’ Through stick to his own age group and run in the Group 1 $2m BMW Australian Derby (2400m) or Waller could bring him back to the 1600m and run him against the older horses in the Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile at Randwick on April 1.

Big race jockey Craig Williams takes the ride on Saturday and was on hand to ride Comin’ Through in track work on Tuesday morning and said that he was ready to run out the 2000m in the Rosehill Guineas.

“I was really delighted with his work,” Williams told AAP.

“He worked with a Group One open-age performer and I was really happy with the way he responded to my riding.

“Once he pulled up, he didn’t blow and he’s ready for the ten furlongs (2000m).

“After Saturday they’ll have a couple of decisions to make on where to go. Hopefully he’s victorious and either goes on to the Derby or back to the mile of the Doncaster.”

Comin‘ Through got through the heavy conditions at Randwick last start when third to Inference in the  Group 1 $1m Girvan Waugh Randwick Guineas (1600m) on March 4 but Williams is not worried about facing another rain affected track and expects him to improve in the future.

“He would appreciate a firmer surface, but he will still get through the soft track as we saw last time,” Williams said.

“Whatever he does now is a bonus.

“In six months’ time he’s going to be a better horse and more seasoned horse. But he’s going well enough and his form is good enough to win the Rosehill Guineas on Saturday.”

Comin’ Through has drawn barrier three in the twelve horse Rosehill Guineas field and will clash again with Randwick Guineas winner Inference who has drawn barrier three with Tommy Berry to ride again.

The Team Hawkes trained Inference is solid at the top of the Rosehill Guineas market order at $3.40 with Ladbrokes.com.au while Comin’ Through is listed as an $8 chance.

Also high up in the betting are the two Derby winners sharing the second line at $6, Victoria Derby victor Prized Icon and New Zealand Derby winner Gingernuts.
