Caulfield Cup hopeful Go Indy Go will take great benefit from her first up run in the Group 3 $120,000 David Coles AM Spring Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on Saturday.

The 2014 Group 1 Champagne Stakes winner will be having her first run since finishing seventh of twelve in the Group 1 $1m Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington in November during the 2014 Melbourne Spring Carnival.

Co-trainer Leon Macdonald has given Go Indy Go a solid grounding for her return to the racetrack but is certain the mare will need the run before she can start to produce her best.

“I think she is going alright but having said that she will need the run on Saturday,” Macdonald told the Sportsman.

Macdonald, who trains in partnership with Andrew Gluyas at Morphettville, said that Go Indy Go wasn’t at her best in the Spring last year and was happy to give her the Autumn off before preparing her for the Group 1 $3m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 17.

“She raced below her best in the Spring so we decided to give her the Autumn off and see if we could get her right,” Macdonald said.

“She has grown up. She has got very tall, probably not carrying quite as much condition as she used to but pretty happy with her, she looks fine.”

“We can’t be any happier with her so let’s see what she can do.”

Go Indy Go tuned up her return with a hit out with Spring Stakes rival Happy Trails in between races at Morphettville last Saturday and although the three time Group 1 winner shaded her in the gallop, Macdonald was still happy with her performance of his mare.

Go Indy Go capped off her juvenile season with a win in the Group 1 $400,000 Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick during the 2014 Sydney Autumn Carnival but failed to impress at her subsequent Spring campaign.

Go Indy Go disappointed at her first run when fifteenth in the Group 2 $200,000 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington but then performed better stepping up to 1400m when third to Afleet Esprit in the Group 2 $200,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield.

Then she was always well back and never threatened when seventh to Amicus in the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield before running the best race of her campaign when third to Moonovermanhattan in the Group 2 $200,000 Dilmah Exceptional Teas Vase (2040m) at Moonee Valley prior to running in the Crown Oaks.

Go Indy Go is marked at $6.50 for the Spring Stakes with Ladbrokes.com.au in a tight betting race that has six of the eleven runners under double figures.

Smart local sprinter Riziz heads the market order at $4.20 ahead of stablemates Richie’s Vibe at $5 and Happy Trails at $6.

Spring Stakes market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $4.20 Riziz, $5 Richie’s Vibe, $6 Happy Trails, Alcohol, $6.50, Go Indy Go, $8.50 Dylanson, $10 Whitlam, $14 Justify That, $41 Red Eclipse, $61 Pinky Tuscadero, $71 Stimulate.

While in early Caulfield Cup markets Go Indy Go is listed as a $51 chance.
