Godolphin galloper Contributer is set for his first-up spring assignment after a familiarisation gallop at Moonee Valley.
Trainer John O’Shea took Contributer to the track on Tuesday morning in preparation for his return in Saturday’s Group Two Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes on Saturday.
It will be Contributer’s first run since he won the Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill in the autumn.
A leg injury ruled him out of Sydney’s richest race, the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes, but O’Shea said he was now in peak condition.
Contributer is the $2 favourite for Saturday’s race and the $11 equal favourite for the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley on October 24.
