Noseda mullling Melbourne bid

Jeremy Noseda is considering a trip to Australia for the Melbourne Cup with Sans Frontieres following his recent Newmarket victory.

Jeremy Noseda is considering a trip to Australia for the Melbourne Cup with Sans Frontieres following his recent Newmarket victory.

The four-year-old bounced back to winning ways in the Princess Of Wales’s Stakes last week to finally confirm the promise he had shown earlier in his career.

Last season he was placed in both the Craven and the Dante but his campaign was cut short by injury.

“I was delighted with his performance. He started cantering again today but future plans for him are still a little fluid,” said Noseda

“I have spoken to Sir Robert Ogden (owner) and his racing manager Barry Simpson and we are looking at the Irish St Leger and perhaps a tilt at the Melbourne Cup could be an end of season target.”

Noseda had a mixed week at Headquarters with his stable star Fleeting Spirit finishing fifth in her defence of the July Cup while Railway Stakes winner Formosina disappointed in the Superlative Stakes.

“I was satisfied with her (Fleeting Spirit’s) performance but unfortunately we felt that she did not let herself down on the fast ground,” he told his website, www.jeremynoseda.com.

“We shall look at the Nunthorpe and the Sprint Cup at Haydock and hopefully we shall get an ease in conditions in one of those.

“We can totally write off Formosina’s run as he was just flat from his win in the Railway Stakes.

“I made a mistake running him back so quickly.”
