At a time when Australian staying talent is being scrutinised amid an imposing overseas presence in the Melbourne Cup, breeding buffs are sure to take interest in the effort of The Wildman at Doomben.

The Wildman, who ran second at his only start when his inexperience was obvious, will tackle the Tiland Construction Handicap on Saturday.

Named after Tony Wildman, a popular Sydney trainer who died in 2008, the two-year-old will raise the curiosity of breeding experts.

The Wildman is by Champions Gallery, the first son of super sire Dansili to stand at stud in Australia.

Dansili’s Group One winners in Europe include Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe hero Rail Link, Harbinger and Provisio.

In Australia, the Dansili flag has been flown by imports Foreteller, Trick Of Light and Permit.

Champions Gallery, who won in Europe and Hong Kong, has had a limited number of runners to the track and The Wildman is from his second crop to race.

The stallion stands at Kilto Park for Neville Bell and his wife Mary and they race The Wildman.

“I suppose it is topical at a time when everyone is talking about the lack staying sires in Australia and the lack of locals in the Melbourne Cup,” Bell said.

“But we decided to roll the dice with Champions Gallery who should get stayers and sprinters.

“We didn’t expect him to get two-year-old winners but the Dansili breed in Europe and America have won over shorter courses.

“It is interesting from a breeding point of view that when we put Champions Gallery to a mare who had won seven short-course races (Bevagna) we got The Wildman.”

The Wildman, who will start a short-priced favourite, will spell after Saturday’s race and return in the new year when trainer Mick Mair will decide if the youngster is up to Sydney autumn carnival standard.

Tegan Harrison, who rode The Wildman at his first start, will retain the mount.
