Scottish to Lead Godolphin Team

Friday, 11th August 2017

Scottish will head the Godolphin string for trainer Charlie Appleby at this year's spring carnival in Melbourne, reports theinformant.co.nz. Runner-up behind Jameka in last year's Caulfield Cup, Scottish (Teofilo) will run in Sunday's Gr1 Arlington Million in the US before making his second trip to Australia. Appleby has nominated races such as the Gr1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on 14 October, the Gr1 Cox Plate (2040m) on 28 October, and the Gr1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) on 11 November as potential targets for the 5YO. "Nothing is set in stone. We'll leave all the options open as long as possible," Appleby said. "But Scottish will lead a strong Godolphin team into Melbourne, all going well, and will be very competitive." Appelby added: "He has one of the eight invitations issued for the Cox Plate, and we nominated him for the race this week." Scottish showed his quality when resuming from a long break with a creditable fifth behind Highland Reel in the Gr1 Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot.
