Group One star Buffering received the green light for his sixth Melbourne spring campaign after easily winning a jump-out at Doomben on Tuesday.

Buffering, who hasn’t raced since being unplaced in the Hong Kong Sprint in December, missed the Brisbane winter carnival with a leg injury.

Trainer Rob Heathcote gave Buffering an eight-week spell and then brought him back for a slow build-up for the Melbourne spring and possibly the Perth summer.

Buffering had a jump-out two weeks ago and was not at his best.

But it was a different story on Tuesday when Buffering jumped from he outside barrier and demolished a handy field.

“He won by eight lengths and ran smart time. Damian Browne got off and said he ticked all the boxes today,” Heathcote said.

“The difference was we had the blinkers back on him today and we had stepped up his work,” Heathcote said.

Buffering will be sent to Melbourne with stablemate Hopfgarten on Monday.

“It will give him nearly two weeks in Melbourne before he has his first start for the spring in the Moir Stakes,” Heathcote said.

“He likes Moonee Valley and has won the Moir twice. I would expect him to be near his top for that race.”

Trainer Tony Gollan’s new acquisition Fontelina had an easy jump-out on Tuesday.

Formerly trained by Anthony Cummings, Fontelina won the Group Two Yellowglen Stakes (1200m) twice at Flemington and each time beat Gollan’s horse Spirit Of Boom.

“We will try to get him ready for the Yellowglen again but if not I think he will make a very good horse for our summer sprint races,” Gollan said.

Gollan said Secret Saga would head to Melbourne for a three-year-old fillies race at Caulfield on October 10.

Secret Saga was an impressive second at Doomben on Saturday after bungling the start and racing greenly.

“She is still learning what it is all about and I think a trip to Melbourne will be the making of her,” Gollan said.
