On prize money alone it’s unlikely a three-year-old will have more at stake in a single Australian race this season than Twilight Royale.

Twilight Royale’s three wins in her first season of racing have put her in contention for a $2.4 million payday in next year’s Scone Guineas.

But Bjorn Baker says it would be foolish to allow the lure of the rich bonus to influence his training of the filly.

“You can’t worry about it because it’s not practical to give her eight months off to get ready for the race,” Baker said.

“The bonus will have no bearing on what she does in the spring.

“All we can do is treat her like a normal horse and go from there and that means she’ll go through the Princess Series and hopefully get to the Flight Stakes.”

Baker doesn’t expect a departure from a traditional Sydney spring program for three-year-old fillies unless she produces something out of the ordinary at the start of her campaign.

“If did she something exceptional at her next two runs we may consider the Golden Rose but I’d say at this stage it will be very much a campaign against the fillies,” he said.

Baker will also run last-start midweek winner Killcareless in the Group Two race, banking on her fitness to compensate for an obvious jump in class.

The trainer’s Group One placegetter Fuerza will contest the Up And Coming Stakes with Baker in a forgiving mood over the colt’s unplaced return.

“He’s back on his home course and his first-up run was OK,” Baker said. “He drew wide and he only had the one trial going into it.”

Fuerza is being directed towards the Spring Champion Stakes at the end of the Sydney carnival.

It’s a race which in part helped Baker arrive on the Sydney training scene.

The quality three-year-old It’s A Dundeel, trained by his father Murray, won last year’s edition when prepared out of Baker’s emerging Warwick Farm stable.
