Star Brisbane sprinter Temple of Boom has been treated for a respiratory problem but will be fit to continue his spring campaign.

Trainer Tony Gollan said he had been mystified by Temple of Boom’s below average performance when fifth in the Gilgai Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.

He had the horse inspected on Saturday night and Temple of Boom was found to be suffering from a grade two mucous infection.

“It is a relief in a way because I was worried about his performance,” Gollan said.

“It was way below what we know he can do. To find out quickly and treat it is a big relief.”

Gollan said Temple of Boom would be clear to run in the Group One Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley on October 24.

“I am sure you will see the real Temple of Boom in that race,” he said.

Gollan flew home to Brisbane from Melbourne on Sunday morning to sort out the future campaigns of some of his other horses.

He said Saturday’s Gold Coast winner Hijack Hussy would probably go to Melbourne for fillies and mares races.

“Her owner Joe O’Neill is keen for her to go and to get some black type with her,” Gollan said.

Hijack Hussy recorded a scintillating win when she stormed home from near the tail of the field to win a 1400m open three-year-old race.

Gollan said he wanted to assess Hi Son before committing him to another battle with arch rival Volkhere in a fortnight over 2000m at Doomben.

“Volkhere just outstayed him on Saturday over 2200 metres and I have to decide whether he can beat him at the 2000 metres,” he said.

“I think he is a 1600 to 2000 metre horse more than a stayer.”

Hi Son and Volkhere have fought out five races between 2000 and 2200m this season with the score now 3-2 to Volkhere.
