Gerald Ryan will reserve his decision on immediate plans for Bachman, but long-term he rates the colt a Caulfield Guineas candidate.

The two-year-old ploughed through heavy conditions to win the opening race on Golden Slipper day.

However, the victory is unlikely to tempt Ryan to back him up in the Group One Sires’ Produce Stakes.

The Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) on April 19 is a more likely target, ahead of a Caulfield Guineas campaign in the spring.

“If ever there was a Caulfield Guineas horse, this horse is him,” Ryan said.

“Whatever he does as a two-year-old, he will be a hell of a lot better as a three-year-old.

“He’s in the Sires’ but I’ve always thought today, the Fernhill and then stop him.

“We will let him tell us. Since his last start he’s bodied up. He looks better, he’s eaten better and while he’s on a spiral we might not stop him.”

Part-owned by Ryan’s long-time client Damion Flower, Bachman ($5.50) came from behind the speed with jockey Nash Rawiller steering a wide course in the straight.

He scored by 2-1/4 lengths over Scratch Me Lucky ($7.50), which was first emergency for the Golden Slipper but didn’t get a start.

Victorian filly Veuvelicious ($5.50) was another half neck away third.

Sentimental money was on Hampton Court ridden by Tommy Berry, the twin brother of jockey Nathan Berry who died on Thursday following a short battle with NORSE syndrome.

However, the horse struggled in the wet conditions and finished with the tailenders.
