Gai Waterhouse has warned punters not to underestimate Glencadam Gold as he prepares to take on high profile  stable mate Fiorente in the Group 1 $500,000 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington tomorrow.

Glencadam Gold has had two runs back from a spell and is starting to show glimpses of the form that saw him lead all of the way to take out the Group 1 $400,000 McGrath Estate Agents Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick last Spring.

The former English galloper took up his proven front running tactics again but was run down by Moriarty in the Group 2 $200,000 Bacardi Hill Stakes (2000m) at Randwick two weeks ago and is on target to line up in the Group 1 $2.65m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield in a fortnight.

“He seems to be completely on top of his game and I am extremely pleased with the way he is going,” Waterhouse told the Sportsman.

“He ran sixth in the Melbourne Cup and he is on target to go on to the Caulfield Cup.”

While Glencadam Gold is a $41 chance for the Turnbull Stakes, Hill Stakes winner Moriarty is one of the top chances for the Metropolitan at Randwick tomorrow and is currently the second favourite at $4.60 behind Prince Cheri at $3.80.

Waterhouse is also very happy with the progress of Fiorente after the import scored a last stride win in the Group 2 $300,000 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 14.

Fiorente is the reigning $4.50 favourite for the Turnbull Stakes and Waterhouse says that the six year old will be very hard to beat.

“He will be very hard to beat in whatever he runs in,” Waterhouse said.

“He is a very robust horse and he is in marvellous form.”

“I give my horses plenty of work anyway, because it is the nature of the way I train, but I think if you didn’t he could get big.”

In other Turnbull Stakes betting, Puissance De Lune is marked at $4.80 to win his first Group 1 just ahead of Royal Descent at $6.50 and Australian Cup winner Super Cool at $7.50.
