The different style work-outs at Caulfield of two Memsie Stakes hopefuls have their interstate trainers in good spirits ahead of the Group One race.

Kris Lees, who trains Le Romain, sent the gelding off on a gallop on the course proper while Nick Olive tested Single Gaze against some local gallopers in a 800m jump-out.

Le Romain and Single Gaze are two of the 11 individual Group One winners among the 18 nominations for Saturday’s 1400m-race at Caulfield.

Le Romain is no stranger to racing left-handed, winning the Group One Cantala Stakes at Flemington last spring.

Ridden by race jockey Ben Melham in a 1000m-gallop on Tuesday, in which he quickened over the final 600m, Le Romain handled the Caulfield circuit without a concern.

“He profiles like a Caulfield horse,” Lees said.

“It looks a pretty good race at this early stage and like all big races the barrier draw will be important, but he’s got here in good order.”

Following a first-up second in the Missile Stakes at Randwick earlier in the month, Le Romain has been back to the trials since, finishing fifth to Redzel at Randwick on August 21.

Newcastle-based Lees said with that run behind him, the barrier trial and gallops in between, the five-year-old was ready for the $1 million race.

“He’s come on well from a really encouraging first-up run,” Lees said.

“He’s ready for 1400 metres and he’s got a good second-up record.”

Canberra-trained Single Gaze, winner of the 2016 Vinery Stud Stakes, has been in Melbourne almost two weeks preparing for a long spring carnival with Olive hoping the five-year-old proves a worthy contender in the 2017 Caulfield Cup.

He said the mare had not required a lot of galloping in preparation for her first-up assignment, using jump-outs at Caulfield in the past two weeks.

“We wanted to get her down here early to settle in and she’s done that,” Olive said.

“She’s improved out of sight since she’s been here and has really thrived, especially over the last four or five days.”
