Matt Cumani is keeping his options open with four-year-old mare One More Try

Ballarat trainer Matt Cumani is keeping his options open with four-year-old mare One More Try who is nominated for races in two states.

One More Try is entered for the 1800m-handicap at Caulfield on Saturday and also the Kensei Handicap (2000m) at Rosehill.

Cumani indicated it was more likely One More Try would remain in Victoria to run at Caulfield but said they may well accept in both races on Wednesday morning.

“Sydney looks like it might be quite weak, the problem is obviously the travel,” Cumani said.

“I’m not afraid to run her against good horses down here but we’ll just keep an open mind until tomorrow afternoon probably.”

Melbourne’s premier jockey Craig Williams has been booked for the ride should One More Try take her place at Caulfield, while Cumani said no jockey had been locked in for the Sydney race.

One More Try has won five of her 12 starts highlighted by a 1700m handicap for mares on Melbourne Cup day at Flemington last year.

After an unplaced run over 1400m at Flemington in her return from a spell last month, One More Try stepped up to 1800m at Flemington at her most recent start on June 8 and finished second, beaten 2-3/4-lengths by Dr Drill who is among the nominations for Saturday’s Caulfield race.

Dr Drill led at Flemington and kicked away strongly in the home straight while One More Try, who sat behind the leader, beat the third placegetter Masculino by 3-1/4-lengths.

Cumani is expecting another good showing from One More Try, regardless of where she races on Saturday.

“I’m really happy with her,” Cumani said.

“I thought it was a great run last time. I just think the other horse is probably quite good and also just got a little bit of a run on us.

“I think she’ll put in a really good effort and she’s a tough, genuine mare.

“I think she’ll keep progressing through the grades.”

Cumani is hopeful of a really good showing from lightly raced Doroza in a 2000m-handicap for three-year-olds at Caulfield, with the colt’s performance likely to determine whether he presses on to the Mahogany Challenge Final (2500m) a week later.
