The horse many predict will be the next champion to emerge from the Chris Waller stable will face what appears to be certain defeat when she goes up against her illustrious stablemate Winx (Street Cry) in the George Main Stakes.
Waller has confirmed Australian Oaks winner Unforgotten (Fastnet Rock), who was sold through
Curraghmore’s 2016 New Zealand Bloodstock Sale, will run in Saturday's 1600m Group One race at Randwick rather than head to Melbourne for the Makybe Diva Stakes over the same distance at Flemington.
Waller says he is aiming Unforgotten at the Epsom Handicap on September 29, the race Winx won in 2015 before her first of three Cox Plates.
"Following careful consideration, it has been decided that Unforgotten will be targeted towards the Epsom Handicap on September 20 before considering options available to her in Melbourne," Waller said.
"At this stage she is unlikely to feature in the 2018 Caulfield Cup however further assessment will be made following her Epsom start. She has come through her stunning win in the Chelmsford Stakes in excellent order."
Unforgotten and the Kris Lees-trained Le Romain (Hard Spun) are on the second line of the TAB's market for the George Main at $15 with Winx at $1.10 to claim her third win in the race. -AAP
