Black Piranha will make his first public appearance since winning the Group I Stradbroke Handicap with a barrier trial at Rosehill on Friday.

Trainer Con Karakatsanis said the six-year-old gelding is “on track” to resume from a break in the Group III Cameron Handicap at Newcastle on September 16.

“He’ll only be having an easy trial on Friday because I want to trial him again in a fortnight but I’m very happy with how he is progressing,” Karakatsanis said.

“The horse spelled very well and came back in great shape and he’s carried on where he left off when he got back.”

Karakatsanis said the only run set in stone for the campaign is the Cameron.

The trainer will then weigh up a start in the George Main Stakes before heading to Melbourne or going south immediately after the first-up run.

“I’m a bit undecided at this stage,” he said.

“He’ll probably only have three runs leading into the Cox Plate because we get the best out of him when raced like that.

“I’d say he’ll stay in Sydney until after the George Main but we’ll just wait and see how we go.”

Black Piranha has raced just once past 1600 metres but Karakatsanis believes the son of Clang has all the attributes of a horse which can handle the extra distance.

“He relaxes so we’ll in his races that I’m confident he’ll get the extra ground,” he said.

“We’ll test him out in the Caulfield Stakes a fortnight before the Cox Plate so he should be at his top when we get to Moonee Valley.”

Black Piranha’s regular jockey Tye Angland will partner the gelding in his trial on Friday.

TAB Sportsbet have Black Piranha listed as an $18 Cox Plate chance.
