Sidelined stayer Lamasery could emerge as a surprise Doncaster Mile contender in the autumn.

Trainer David Vandyke revealed he was considering the prestigious Group One as a first-up target for the gelding whose spring was cut short by the recurrence of a joint injury.

“He’s in the paddock. I’ll bring him back and we might even try to go first-up into the Doncaster,” Vandyke said.

“If I can have him fit and ready and put him in a mile race where he’ll get less than weight-for-age – because he’s not a big horse – I think that will probably suit him and we’ll go from there.”

Lamasery scored a narrow win over Mourayan in the Group Two Hill Stakes during the Sydney carnival and Vandyke had the Caulfield Cup on his spring radar.

However, those plans had to be scrapped when Lamasery injured himself during the Group One Metropolitan Handicap in which he finished fifth to Glencadam Gold.

Vandyke is also looking forward to Monday’s Randwick barrier trials where he will saddle up Godspeed.

A $1.875 million yearling purchase, the son of Redoute’s Choice will make his first public appearance for Vandyke following stints with Gerald Ryan and Peter Moody.

The four-year-old, who is still an entire, has raced eight times with his sole win coming in a maiden at Mornington in September last year.

“He’s going around on Monday and I’m looking forward to getting him to the races,” Vandyke said.

The trainer scratched Maximus Gladiator from Rosehill on Saturday but still produced a winner when Bledisloe ($21) claimed a first-up win in the final race.

The former Hong Kong galloper has now won three races in the care of Vandyke who has quickly built a reputation as a reconditioner of problem horses.
