Craig Williams is confident the Patinack Farm colt Trusting will have little problem with the Melbourne way of going when he makes his Victorian debut at Caulfield on Saturday.

Trusting will run in the Group III Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) after connections decided to prolong an already successful campaign, highlighted by a weight-for-age win in the Group II Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Williams rode Trusting in a gallop on the Caulfield course proper, getting a good first impression of the son of Tale Of The Cat.

“The cones were out a fair way on the course meaning we were out pretty wide,” Williams said. “He wasn’t under a great deal of pressure in the gallop but the signs he gave me were pretty good.

“He gave me the feel of a horse with top-class ability and showed no signs of wanting to get on his Sydney leg which quite a few horses do when they come here for the first time.”

Meanwhile, Williams has picked up the mount on last year’s Cox Plate winner Maldivian at his second-up run in the Group I Underwood Stakes.

Maldivian carried 60kg when 13th in the Group III Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes at Flemington but Williams said he had no doubt the gelding will be fit enough for the 1800 metres of the $350,000 feature.

“Mark Kavanagh is a top trainer, he’ll have him fit enough to run the trip second-up,” Williams said. “He’s definitely good enough and barrier 13 should be fine for him.

“There’s no decision to make regarding tactics, he goes forward and he’s tough so it’s a great ride to have.”
