Co-trainer Roger James has issued a positive bulletin on Sydney Cup fourth placegetter Rondinella as the four-year-old has resumed canter exercise at the Cambridge stable he and training partner Robert Wellwood operate from.
“We’ve already got Rondinella back in and she’s looking good,” James said. “She had four weeks off after the Sydney Cup and she had a light canter this morning (Monday) for the first time.
“She’s gone a long way this season, from a one-win horse at the start of it.”
No race plans have been made for Rondinella next season, although there is no doubt she will be heading back to Australia in the spring.
“She’ll have a Melbourne campaign, but we’re yet to decide what races to aim for,’’ James said. ‘’We’ll just take her along quietly over winter and get her ready.’’
