The Listed Winter Championship Series Final (1600m) at Flemington next Saturday week shapes as a logical next target for former New Zealand-trained Romancer after his victory in the Brian Beattie Handicap (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday.
“I think we’ve got to go to the Final. You never know, he might get the same conditions again on that day,” trainer Grahame Begg said.
“I reckon he’s a 1400 to 1600-metre horse. He’s in the race and he’s qualified, so why wouldn’t you go there? He’s trained out of Pinecliff and he loves the environment down there.”
