Deep Field was included in the entries for the fifth barrier trial at Rosehill Gardens over 900 metres this morning, but he did not take his place in the field and was instead given a testing trackwork gallop.

Co-trainer Michael Hawkes told Sky Racing HQ that he was happy with the trackwork performance of Deep Field and he revealed that the Northern Meteor entire would have one more jump out in Melbourne before he chases a maiden win at the highest level of racing in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m).

“He had a gallop here at Rosehill instead,” Hawkes said.

“He is all well and everything is fine.

“He did everything right and hit the line super.

“He only did what he was asked to do and he has certainly done well and has continued to improve.

“He will head to Melbourne tomorrow night and jump out in Melbourne on Friday.

“He will probably start in the Lightning.

“We will see how he goes and access it from there and it will be one step at a time, but he is well, he is great and a lot bigger and stronger.

“We are very happy with him.”

Deep Field stamped himself as a horse to watch when he made his racing debut with a dominant ten lengths win in a maiden at Gosford on June 20 and he was sent to a quick spell after he recorded another impressive win at Canterbury on July 9.

The four-year-old broke the track record when he returned to racing over 1100 metres at Canterbury on September 24 before he made his black type debut with a comfortable win in the Listed City Tatts Club Lightning (1100m) at Royal Randwick on October 18.

Deep Field was sent to Melbourne for the Group 2 Yellowglen Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day and he looked as though he was under pressure with 200 metres left to run, but he proved too classy and scored a tough win from Driefontein and In Cahoots.

Deep Field could progress to the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on March 14 if he performs well in the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes and he is currently available at a quote of $4.50.
