Stradbroke Handicap winner Black Piranha will continue his Cox Plate build-up with an 1100-metre barrier trial at Newcastle on Wednesday.

Black Piranha impressed all at Rosehill with a brilliant exhibition gallop but trainer Con Karakatsanis said the six-year-old needed to trial on Wednesday to keep pace with his Cox Plate opposition.

“I’m training him for 2000 metres and the trial will be a perfect lead-in to his first-up run,” Karakatsanis said. “It’s not a rush job but he has had a bit longer in the paddock than some of the others.

“El Segundo and Whobegotyou have had two runs each this time in so he’ll trial on Wednesday and be right for the Cameron Stakes.”

The Cameron Stakes will be run over 1300 metres for the first time on September 16 which Karakatsanis said would fit neatly into his preferred spring plan for Black Piranha.

“The ideal way to go into the Cox Plate would be the Cameron Handicap then the George Main Stakes on the last Saturday in September,” he said.

“That gives us enough time to run in the Toorak Handicap at Caulfield before the Cox Plate. He’ll get plenty of weight in that race but he’s going there mainly to race the Melbourne way.

“Then he’ll have two weeks to go into the Cox Plate at his fourth run.”

TAB Sportsbet currently rates Black Piranha as a $16 chance for the Cox Plate.
