Co-trainer Lee Freedman has confirmed that Disposition will not contest the 2015 Aurie’s Star Handicap at Flemington on Saturday and will instead be saved for a first-up tilt at the Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 15.

Disposition was included in the nominations for the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1400m) that were released yesterday, but Freedman told Racing Ahead that he would instead give the son of Reset a barrier trial next week before he gets him ready for the P.B. Lawrence Stakes or another 1400 metre event at the same meeting at Caulfield.

“Unfortunately for Wez it did go wrong and looking at the result of the Australian Guineas, if he had held his form he would have been a big force in it,” Hunter said.

“We are very pleased with him.

“He is trained out of our Pinecliffe arm because he is a typical Reset and he can be a little highly strung, so he is probably better trained from there.

“He won’t run Saturday and instead I am going to gallop him tomorrow and head to a set of trials in a week or ten days.

“Our thoughts at the moment are that he could run first-up at the end of August in either the P.B. Lawrence or the 1400 metre handicap that day.”

Disposition was one of the star performers during the 2014 Perth Summer Racing Carnival and he was sent to Melbourne for an autumn campaign after he finished a close second behind Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot on December 6.

He made his Melbourne racing debut with a close second behind Wandjina in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on February 21, but he was ruled out of the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) after slipping in track work before he failed to fire in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on April 4.

Disposition was transferred to the care of Team Freedman before the start of his autumn campaign and the five-time Melbourne Cup winning trainer believes that the four-year-old will be competitive at the highest level during his spring campaign.

“Time will tell and I am always wary of horses coming off three-year-old form, but I think that the horse that beat him in the lead-up to the Guineas is a pretty smart horse and this guy was more than competitive in Perth against the older horses as a December three-year-old,” Freedman said.

“You would expect with more time on his side that he would measure up to a decent race.”

Disposition is currently available at 2015 Cox Plate odds of $26 and nominations for the Australasian Weight-For-Age Championship close at midday.
