Star Rolling To Resume This Weekend
Promising stayer Star Rolling is set to open his spring campaign in the Gr2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday after impressing trainer Peter Morgan in track work yesterday, reports horseracing.com.au. Morgan is aiming the son of Casino Prince at the Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on 18 October and says he is happy enough with the 4YOs condition leading into Saturday's race. "I think that we will run him," Morgan said. "He went to Caulfield this morning and I was pretty happy with his work. His coat hasn't come out properly yet, but we have to start out somewhere." Star Rolling hasn't raced since finishing last in the Gr1 Australian Cup behind Fiorente in March, but has had the benefit of a trial when fourth behind talented sprinter Shamal Wind over 800m at Cranbourne on 4 August. "Let's hope he is as good as he was last spring and he is going well," added Morgan. "We are sort of heading towards all the big ones if he is good enough."
