Premier Brisbane trainer Rob Heathcote has a bit of a scary warning for rival trainers regarding Buffering heading into tomorrow’s Group 1 $1 million VRC Sprint Classic, reports TVN's Racing Network.

“I honestly think he’s just coming to his peak," he says. "I deliberately only targeted three races with him and spaced his runs. He goes best when fresh and now he’s right at his peak – better than he was at Moonee Valley."

The scary part of that comment is that Buffering is going into tomorrow’s much-anticipated race down the straight, on the back of a gallant and tough win in the $1 million Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley three weeks ago.

On that occasion he narrowly beat Hong Kong star sprinter Lucky Nine, the $3.50 favourite for tomorrow’s clash.

Heathcote was highly-complimentary of his rider, Damien Browne, who will again steer Buffering.

“I’m not surprised Damien has ridden so may winners here in the last few weeks.

"We know how good he is at home and he’s proving it on the biggest stage of all,” Heathcote said.

“Damien is a great judge of pace and he’ll just let Buffering do his own thing.

"Buffering has a magnificent cruising speed and I reckon he’s got most of these covered down the straight,” Heathcote explained.

Buffering is an $8.00 equal second favourite for the VRC Sprint Classic along with Darren Weir’s top mare, Platelet.
