Criterion To Resume In Warwick Stakes
Australian Derby winner Criterion (Sebring-Mica's Pride, by Bite the Bullet) will begin his Cox Plate campaign when he resumes in next Saturday's Gr2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick, reports racingandsports.com.au. Trainer David Payne confirmed Criterion will resume next weekend before either tackling the Gr2 Dato Tan Chan Nam Stakes or the Gr2 Chelmsford Stakes second up, before heading down to Melbourne for the Gr1 Underwood Stakes. "He's a lot stronger horse now. He's put on a lot more weight," Payne told RSN's Racing Ahead. "We're happy with him. He's forward enough and he's on the right track." He added, "He'll definitely go to the Cox Plate."
