Jukebox Jury is to be aimed at the Melbourne Cup following his rousing dead-heat with Duncan in the Irish Field St Leger.
Connections of the Alan Spence-owned grey have decided to go for Australia’s biggest race after the five-year-old was allotted 57kg.
Jukebox Jury was already certain to go globe-trotting, with races such as the Canadian International, Japan Cup and Hong Kong Vase under consideration.
After his weekend exploits, the Mark Johnston-trained entire will bid to become the first British-trained winner of the two-mile handicap at Flemington on November 1.
“I’ve spoken to Mark and the plan is to go (Melbourne) as his owner is very keen,” the trainer’s wife and assistant, Deirdre.
“He’s a great traveller, is very laid-back and goes on any ground.
“He’s very versatile – he’s won a Group One over a mile-and-a-half and a mile-and-three-quarters – and has come out of the race great.”
