Impressive Ascot Gold Cup winner Too Close The Sun is set to back-up in Saturday’s Group One Railway Stakes.
‘’He looked pretty good here yesterday and he’s pulled up well so we’ll go again next week in the Railway,’’ Smith told Racing.com
‘’It (victory) might interfere with the Perth Cup but that’ll be all right.’’
The Lindsey Smith trained galloper finished a close second to Railway favourite Inspirational Girl in the Asian Beau Stakes resuming from a five month break after a disappointing run in the Andrew Ramsden Stakes and is set to meet her again on Saturday where she is the clear $3.20 favourite.
Too Close The Sun was being targeted at the 2021 Perth Cup but his impressive four length win on Saturday will mean Smith will rethink his star gallopers preparation.
