In-form trainer Anthony Cummings has had a change of heart with his classy filly Lovemelikearock.
Cummings is favouring paying the late entry fee to start the Spring Stakes winner in the Group I Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick on October 3.
Cummings has until September 30 to pay the late entry fee of $16,500 but with the defection to Melbourne of So You Think the Spring Champion Stakes is now the race of choice over the Flight Stakes as originally planned.
â€œI donâ€™t have to make a decision for another week or so but in all likelihood sheâ€™ll run in the Spring Champion,â€ Cummings said.
â€œWith So You Thing going south it opens the race right up.
“She’s shown she can beat the colts and the form out of that race [Spring Stakes] tends to be the right form for the next race [Spring Champion].
So You Think remains a $2.80 favourite with TAB Sportsbet in the Spring Champion Stakes with Gathering at $6 and Hus de Lieften at $7.
Lovemelikearock is not yet in the betting.
