Trainer Bede Murray will not be swayed from his original plan despite the strength of Darci Be Good’s win in the Group Three Spring Stakes at Newcastle on Wednesday.

Murray said the colt would have one more start in the Group One Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on October 1 before being spelled.

“There have been suggestions we should start him in the Victoria Derby but it is 2500 metres and he is not ready for it,” Murray said.

“Our plan always was to run him in this race and the Spring Champion Stakes then send him to the paddock and we will not be swayed from that plan.

“He is a tall, lean horse and still immature but I am sure he will grow into himself with a good break and come back a much stronger horse.

“The AJC Derby in the autumn will be his mission next time in.

“When (jockey) Hugh Bowman ran third on him in the Ming Dynasty he came back and said he would make a mile-and-a-half (2400 metres) horse later on.”

Glen Boss was aboard Darci Be Good in the Spring Stakes (1600m) and he parked him in second place behind leader Just The Tonic.

He took control soon after straightening and defied the challenge from Rekindled Alliance to score by a neck with Ambidexter another three-quarters-of-a-length away third.

Boss, having his first ride on the colt, will retain the mount in the Spring Champion.

“Hugh couldn’t ride him in the Spring Champion Stakes and Glen’s manager was chasing the ride so we decided to put him on in both races,” Murray said.

Wednesday’s edition was the second Spring Stakes success for Murray.

The first was 11 years ago with Universal Prince.

Meanwhile, speedster Tasos will be put on the float to Melbourne next Wednesday with stablemate and Cox Plate hopeful Torio’s Quest following his narrow win in the Hurricane Stakes (900m).

Trainer Brett Partelle said Tasos would not be seen in any of the feature races in Melbourne but would be aimed at lesser events.

“There are plenty of suitable races for him at places like Geelong and Mornington,” Partelle said.

“A trip away will do him the world of good and I think we will see the best of this horse in the next 18 months or two years.”

The win was a tonic for Partelle who has been struck down for the last five weeks with tonsilitis.
