A reprieve from Racing Victoria will see cult horse Chautauqua go around at Flemington on Friday.
The Hawkes Racing-trained sprinter will figure in jump-out at Flemington on Friday, one of two consecutive trials he needs to pass before he is cleared for a racetrack return.
A ban was placed on Chautauqua after he refused to leave the barriers twice on February 27.
In five subsequent barrier trials he’s been slow to jump.
After his latest trial on August 25, where he didn’t miss the start as badly as in previous trials but was then slow to get galloping, Racing NSW stewards ruled Chautauqua couldn’t trial again until September 22.
The Everest still remains Chautauqua’s Spring target if he can pass his barrier certificate.
