Almoonqith begins his Sydney Cup campaign against weight-for-age opposition at Caulfield.
The Lindsay Park-trained former European lines up alongside stablemates He Or She and Rising Romance in the Peter Young Stakes on Saturday.
Almoonqith hasn’t raced since winning the Sandown Cup over 3200 metres in November after finishing with the tail-enders in the Melbourne Cup won by Prince Of Penzance.
Co-trainer David Hayes said the Sydney Cup on April 9 was the autumn target for Almoonqith.
To be ridden by Damian Lane, Almoonqith is a $15 chance for his first run back.
He Or She is the best fancied of the Lindsay Park trio at $8 with Rising Romance at $9.
Godolphin’s Bow Creek, an unlucky first-up runner in the C F Orr Stakes, is the $3.90 favourite for Saturday’s Group Two race.
