MELBOURNE – Consistent sprinter Cascabel will be trying to break a luckless summer run when he backs up for his third feature race since Christmas in the listed Doveton Stakes at Caulfield.
Trainer Robbie Griffiths said the six-year-old, who has placed second at his past three starts, performed well with two races close together but would be in uncharted territory when he lines up on Saturday over 1200 metres for his third run in 12 days.
“He always backs up well a week apart but we have never done three in a row, especially coming off a hot day like he faced this week,” Griffiths said.
“I want to make sure his pre-race blood, weight and hydration is good but I certainly couldn’t see any reason why we shouldn’t accept (yesterday) for Saturday when it gives us another 72 hours to work out what to do.
“It is bit early to tell because it has only been 48 hours since he raced on Monday, but he certainly seems to be quite upbeat since the run.”
