Tuesday morning gallops will determine how many runners will carry the Godolphin royal blue colours in Saturday’s Group 1 $1m Inglis Sires’ (1400m) at Randwick on Day One of The Championships.
Trainer James Cummings will sort out his runners for the Group 1 for the two year olds after morning track work and we could see a rematch between the Golden Slipper winning quinella of Kiamichi and Microphone.
“We could have up to as many as five, but I am not convinced we will have that many,” Cummings told RSN927 on Monday.
“The certain starters would be Microphone and Tenley. We’re pretty likely to run Kiamichi. I think she will be really strong over 1400 metres.
“There’s a chance that Bivouac might run there instead of the Kindergarten, but we’ll weigh that up after we get through our work tomorrow.
“And even the filly Flit, she was pretty good winning the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes down at Flemington and she’s not without a chance of running in the race either.”
The Cummings trained youngsters dominated the lead up races to the Group 1 $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 23 and the Godolphin trainer saddle up five runners in the richest two year old race in the world.
Golden Slipper runner up Microphone is the most fancied of the Cummings trained youngsters in the Inglis Sires’ and shares the second line of betting at $7.50 with Bellevue Hill and Loving Gaby at Ladbrokes.com.au behind the $6 favourite Castelvecchio.
