Trainer David Vandyke only has four horses in work and two of them will contest Group Ones at Randwick next Saturday.

Lamasery booked himself a spot in the Metropolitan Handicap (2400m) with a courageous win in the Group Three Colin Stephen Quality (2400m) at Rosehill on Saturday while Choice Words will back-up in the Flight Stakes (1600m) after her fighting neck second to Disputes in the Reginald Allen Stakes (1400m).

“I’ve only got the two racing at the moment and they will both be in Group Ones next Saturday,” a thrilled Vandyke said.

Lamasery was having his first test over the Metropolitan journey and Vandyke said he thought the five-year-old had the odds stacked against him.

The gelding was having just his third run this campaign and stepping up quickly in distance after resuming over 1500m before winning the Kingston Town Quality (2000m) last start.

“The 2400 metres was an ask, the 57 kilos was an ask and third-up was an ask,” Vandyke said.

“He just answered all those questions.

“He drops five kilos into the Metropolitan next Saturday. Bring it on.”

Jockey Brenton Avdulla settled Lamasery ($4.80) just off the speed and the gelding chased gamely in the straight and kept finding to get the verdict by a head over Red Eye Special ($15) with Two For Tea ($41) a further half-length away third.

However, Avdulla told Vandyke he believed Lamasery would be more effective ridden quietly next week.

“I thought today I’d rather go forward and give him less to do at the finish,” Avdulla said.

“But if you ride him a bit quieter it will give him the chance to finish off.”

It was unclear if Avdulla would stick with Lamasery in the Metropolitan as he also won the Newcastle Cup aboard the Lloyd Williams-owned Green Moon who could also line up in the Group One.

Trainer Gai Waterhouse said Two For Tea would not back-up next week.
