Polarisation and stablemate Penglai Pavilion are two English stayers the Godolphin Team have sent to Australia to contest the Sydney Cup and travelling assistant trainer James Fergusson had reported to Racing New South Wales Stewards that Polarisation was found to have some heat in its off-fore fetlock over the weekend.

Stewards immediately ordered that the five year old gelding be inspected by the Racing New South Wales Senior Official Veterinarian, Dr Craig Suann and he was passed fit to run in the Sydney Cup after coming through a gallop at Canterbury this morning in fine order.

Racing New South Wales released the following statement clearing Polarisation to run in the Saturday’s Sydney Cup.

“Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian, Dr Craig Suann this morning examined Polarisation prior to the gelding working at Canterbury Park.”

“Dr Suann reported there were no abnormalities detected with the gelding during his examination and observations of the gelding’s trackwork and accordingly, Polarisation has been cleared to start in the Schweppes Sydney Cup at Royal Randwick on Saturday.”

Polarisationn and Penglai Pavailion completed the 3200m of the Sydney Cup which was abandoned mid race on the second day of ‘The Championshps’ on April 8 after the Lindsay Park trained Almoonqith and the Chris Waller’s veteran stayer Who Shot Thebarman fell just past the winning post on the first lap of the track and Racing NSW along with the Australian Turf Club have made arrangements for the Sydney Cup to be re-run on Saturday.

Polarisation was actually first across the finish line after jockey Corey Brown didn’t receive the message that the race was being called off and stablemate Penglai Pavilion with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle also completed the 3200m course to finish unofficially third.

The new Sydney Cup field will be limited to fourteen runners, firstly made up of horses from the original field who want to go around again plus supplementary entries to make up the numbers.

Polarisation and Penglai Pavilion are among the sixteen nominations for the rescheduled Sydney Cup which also includes the Darren Weir trained Big Duke who was sent out as the short priced favourite in the original running of Autumn Carnival two mile feature.

Trainer Chris Waller has renominated Who Shot Thebarman, Libran and Kinema for the re-running of the Sydney Cup while original entries of Tally, Chance To Dance and Annus Mirabilis are also among the nominations.

The Lindsay Park Team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig have nominated French import Harlem along with Boom Time who earned a shot at the Group 1 two miler after winning a 2425m $100,000 Handicap at Caulfield last Saturday.

Trainer Lee Curtis will give his Crown Oaks winner Lasqueti Spirit a chance in the Sydney Cup after she pulled up okay after running third to Bonneval in the Group 1 $1m James Boag’s Premium Australian Oaks (2400m) at Randwick on April 8 with Bobby El-Issa booked to ride.

Early market order for the Sydney Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3.20 Big Duke, $5 Penglai Pavilion, $7 Polarisation, $9 Lasqueti Spirit, $11 Tally, $12 Chance To Dance, $13 Who Shot Thebarman, $17 Libran, $26 Annus Mirabilis, Boom Time, Kinema, Rock On, $51 Harlem, Self Sense, $101 Mister Impatience, Pentathlon.
