Schofield has been aboard the Chris Waller trained Japonisme on two occasions for a win in the Group 1 $500,000 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington during the 2015 Melbourne Cup Carnival and when third to Chautauqua in the Group 1 $750,000 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) at Flemington in this year’s Melbourne Autumn Carnival.

Japonisme has had three more runs with Craig Williams in the saddle when fifth to The Quarterback in the Group 1 $1.25m Lexus Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington before Hugh Bowman took over for his next two runs for a third in the Group 1 $500,000 Mitchelton Wines William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley followed by a win in the Group 2 $500,000 Arrowfield 3yo Sprint (1200m) at Randwick on April 9.

“Japonisme will have Glyn Schofield on for the first time since he won the Coolmore Stud Stakes,” Waller said.

Schofield got reacquainted with Japonisme when the pair teamed up to win a 1050m Randwick barrier trial on May 6.

Waller had preliminary plans of heading to England with Japonisme for the Royal Ascot Carnival but has had second thoughts and is happy to put the trip off for twelve months.

“It’s highly unlikely,” Waller said.

“I’d rather take him over there next year when he is a four-year-old.”

Waller is likely to have three runners in the BTC Cup and as well as Japonisme will have Delectation and Counterattack representing the stable.

Waller is looking for an improved performance from the out of form Delectation who hasn’t filled a place since winning the Group 1 $1m Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington on November 7.

The champion Sydney trainer has given Delectation two recent barrier trials for wins over 796m at Warwick Farm on April 29 and over 1050m at Randwick on May 6 and is hoping the four year old can replicate those performances in the BTC Cup on Saturday.

“He has been doing things wrong and he’s got to settle to be effective,” Waller said.

“We have given him two barrier trials to take the edge off him.

“I think the Doomben 10,000 will be the perfect race for him but he is ready for the BTC Cup.”

The Group 1 $750,000 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10000 (1350m) will be run at Doomben a fortnight after the BTC Cup.

Counterattack has been running back into form and was only beaten a lip last start by stablemate Japonisme in the Arrowfield 3yo Sprint.

BTC Cup market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $4 Fell Swoop, $5 Japonisme, $6 Malaguerra, $7 Counterattack, Ghisoni, $9 Artlee, Music Magnate, $13 Delectation, $19 Charlie Boy, $21 Dothraki, Spill The Beans, Target In Sight, $34 Sacred Star, $41 Echo Gal, Stratum Star, $51 Stellar Collision, Two Blue, $67 Spieth, $101 Liberation.
