Shoot Out and Foreteller both finished at the tail of the field behind Streama in a barrier trial over 900 meters at Rosehill on August 5 while Metal Bender continues to work towards a return to racing for the first time since his victory in the 2012 Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and has been included in the nominations for both the Caulfield Cup (2400m) and Cox Plate (2040m).
