John O’Shea will enter Saturday’s Sires’ Produce Stakes optimistic with Golden Slipper placegetter Elite Falls but the news for stablemate Foxwedge hasn’t been as good.

Foxwedge appeared to lose his action in the straight in Saturday’s Golden Slipper and the colt is set to undergo tests at Randwick Equine Centre to determine the full extent of an injury to the origin of the suspensory of his near-foreleg.

“He’s going to have some analysis today at the Randwick Equine Centre and that will determine the length of time he needs out,” O’Shea said at trackwork on Tuesday.

“I think he’ll be right to come back for the latter part of the spring.

“Physically he’s all right, he’s just struggling a little bit with his near-fore and hopefully we can rectify it over the next day or so.

“He definitely strained his origin, it was very tender when he got home (from the Slipper).

“It’s disappointing to get this far and then have something go amiss there, but he’ll be OK.”

Foxwedge came seventh in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) while his stablemate Elite Falls ran home for third to dominant juvenile Sepoy and is set to back up in the Group One Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.

Rain was falling at trackwork on Tuesday and an affected track certainly won’t harm the filly’s chances as she won the Reisling Stakes on a slow track two starts back.

“She came through the Slipper really good,” O’Shea said.

“When you analyse it she had a pretty easy time for the first three-quarters of the race and sprinted up a furlong (200m), so we’re very happy the way she came through it.

“She’ll just have an easy week and she’ll turn up on Saturday nice and fresh and ready to go.”

Elite Falls has had four starts so far this preparation, finishing second to Satin Shoes in both the Widden Stakes and Silver Slipper Stakes before turning the tables on that filly in the Reisling.

O’Shea expects the Slipper form to hold up in the Sires.

“I think the main Slipper chances coming out of the race are going to be the ones to beat, and if Anthony Cummings’ horse (Smart Missile) can get to the barriers and get through them he’ll be nice and hard to beat,” he said.

“But we’re happy enough with our filly. She’s had an uninterrupted preparation and Slipper placegetters have a great record in the Sires.”

Smart Missile was scratched after playing up in the gates prior to the Golden Slipper but the unbeaten colt passed a barrier test on Monday morning at Randwick and is free to take his place in the Sires.
