Trainer Chris Waller has an ambitious Spring Carnival planned for his talented staying filly Egg Tart which could include a start in the Group 1 $3m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 21.

The Dual Group 1 winning filly is back in Waller’s Rosehill stables following a well-deserved break that came at the end of strenuous campaign that saw her race and win in four different states of Australia.

“She raced in four states. She went from Sydney to Melbourne to Adelaide and then Queensland and won in all four places,” Waller told AAP.

“The Epsom is also could be the race for her. We will look at the Caulfield Cup but it’s a hard race for fillies early in their four-year-old season.”

Waller has selected the Group 1 $1m Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on September 30 as a major Sydney Spring Carnival target for Egg Tart before she heads to Melbourne for the remainder of the Spring.

Egg Tart has only been to the races on eight occasions but is the winner of six of them which includes two Group 1 victories against the fillies during the Autumn and Winter Carnivals.

After working her way up through the classes with wins at Newcastle and Warwick Farm, Egg Tart was able to win a 1600m three year old race at Flemington before heading over to Adelaide where she won the Group 1 $400,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) at Morphettville on May 6.

Waller then sent the Sebring filly to Brisbane for the Queensland Winter Carnival and despite having a month in between runs, was able to reproduce her whirl wind finish to win the Group 1 $500,000 Treasury Brisbane Queensland Oaks (2200m) which was run at Doomben after being transferred from Eagle Farm which was shut down because of the state of the track.

In early betting for the 2017 Caulfield Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au, Egg Tart is on the second line of betting at $21 behind five horses that share top billing at $17, Bonneval, Gingernuts, Hartnell, Humidor and Idaho.

Early market order for the 2017 Caulfield Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au: $17 Gingernuts, Bonneval, Hartnell, Humidor, Idaho, $21 Egg Tart, Articus, Fame Game, Frontiersman, Our Century, Ruthven, $26 Bondi Beach, Big Duke, Crocodile Rock, Exospheric, Francis Of Assisi, Scottish, Varizabad, Yankee Rose, Jon Snow, $34 Almandin, Grey Lion, Kinema, Oceanographer, Perfect Reflection, Life Less Ordinary, Manatee, Montoya’s Secret, Prized Icon, Red Cardinal, Sarrasin, Single Gaze, Sir Isaac Newton, Tally, Tosen Stardom, $41 or better the rest.
