However, stablemate GAMBLESTOWN could be saved for the following Saturday at Randwick where a 1600m BM88 awaits.
Lightly-raced gelding SHOW ME THE HONEY is another Pride stable member Saturday acceptor, in a C1 1000m at Kembla Grange, but could also be kept for another day – most likely a 1000m C3 at Goulburn.
Meanwhile in sunny Brisbane, trainer Steve O’Dea is preparing to run three Proven Thoroughbreds gallopers.

Promising filly BRING ME SHOWERS is due to trial at Wyong on Monday.
