Spring star Kolding headlines a strong team of barrier trial runners at Rosehill for champion trainer Chris Waller.
Waller hopes Kolding is among selections for the All-Star Mile at Caulfield in March but is just as happy to keep him in Sydney.
The All-Star Mile field is determined by public vote, two win-and-you’re-in races and two or three wild cards.
“Kolding is an interesting horse as he just keeps getting better,” Waller said.
“I’ve got a slight leaning to the All-Star Mile but how do you set a horse for the race if you don’t know he will get a start?
Kolding’s Epsom win on October 5 capped a record-breaking day for Waller who won all four Group One races up for grabs – three at Randwick and one at Flemington.
Kings Will Dream will run in the other 900m-trial on Tuesday.
All up Waller has 26 horses listed for the trials but Funstar will wait for another day.
“I’m in no rush with her,” he said.
“Her first-up run is the Surround Stakes on February 29.
“There are a lot of unknowns with Funstar, I don’t even know what her best distance will be but I do know she is very good.”
