Rick Hore-Lacy has confirmed that Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes runner-up Pinnacles will contest the Epsom Handicap at Randwick.

Hore-Lacy said Jay Ford would ride the gelding in Saturday’s Group One event.

The Epsom will be Pinnacles’ third start on successive Saturdays but Hore-Lacy is confident he will cope.

“If any horse can handle it it’s him,” Hore-Lacy said.

Pinnacles is a dual Group One placegetter and came closest to victory at the top level last Saturday when second to stablemate Toorak Toff in the Group One Rupert Clarke.

He also finished third to Triple Honour in the 2008 Group One Doncaster Handicap (1600m) at Randwick.

“He handles the Sydney way of going and he has never raced better,” Hore-Lacy said.

“We gave him three months spell after his last campaign and that has certainly helped him this time in.”

Hore-Lacy said Sydney’s recent wet weather should ensure track conditions that suit Pinnacle.

Meanwhile, Hore-Lacy has ruled out the Cox Plate as a possible target for Toorak Toff.

Hore-Lacy was flirting with the idea of running in the Moonee Valley weight-for-age feature after the Rupert Clarke, but will now keep the four-year-old to 1600-metre feature races.

Hore-Lacy is mindful that the Show A Heart entire is untried at 2000 metres.

“I gave it a lot of thought and I just think you are on a hiding to nothing running in the Cox Plate,” Hore-Lacy said.

“Most of the top stallions have been sprinter-milers.”

Hore-Lacy said the Group One Toorak Handicap (1600) at Caulfield on October 8 would be Toorak Toff’s next start before the Group Two Crystal Mile (1600m) at Moonee Valley and the Group One Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington.
