A Singapore trip didn’t come to fruition for Ahdashim earlier this year but trainer Gerald Ryan has races in three states in mind for the sprinter this campaign.

Ahdashim was nominated for the KrisFlyer Sprint in May but Ryan said a hind leg injury sustained in his box in April put paid to those hopes.

The six-year-old gelding resumes in the Turner Freeman Handicap (1100m) on his home track at Rosehill on Saturday with a late carnival appearance in Melbourne a possibility.

Ryan is also looking at two stakes races in Brisbane this summer with the Group Three-winning sprinter.

Ahdashim hasn’t started since his fourth to Keepin’ The Dream in the Group Three Newcastle Newmarket (1400m) in March but tuned up for his return with a barrier trial win at Rosehill on Tuesday.

“It was a reasonably easy trial, he led all the way and wasn’t knocked about,” Ryan said.

In recent preparations Ahdashim has resumed over 1200m but Ryan has opted for the 1100m event on Saturday.

“It’s hard to find races for him but if he ran well on Saturday we might take him down to Sandown for his next start,” the trainer said.

The Sandown race on November 12 is the Listed Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1300m).

“Otherwise he’ll go to Brisbane for a couple of the summer series races.”

The Group Three George Moore Stakes (1200m) and the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) at Doomben are the Brisbane races pencilled in for the sprinter.

Ryan said Ahdashim, who’ll be ridden by Josh Parr on Saturday, had come back into work quite late which was the reason he was only ready to resume on Saturday.

“He was late coming back in but he’s come up well,” Ryan said.

“Originally we were going to go to Singapore but he hurt his hind leg in his box and we had to stop.

“He went out to the paddock at the end of April and didn’t come back into work until the first of August.”

Ahdashim has won one of his five first-up starts and is the $5 third favourite behind Group One-winning sprinter Atomic Force at $2.60 and Phenomenal Lass at $4.

“It’s probably too short and he lacks a run but he’s going well,” Ryan said.

“He’ll still run well.”
