He plans to start Sincero's spring campaign early in September with a run in the Grp 3 Tramway 1400m following a barrier trial at Randwick on Aug 19. Farley says: 'He will have one run before going to Melbourne where the Underwood Stakes is shaping as his first race. Following this, we can start him in the Turnbull Stakes

Farley says: 'He will have one run before going to Melbourne where the Underwood Stakes is shaping as his first race. Following this, we can start him in the Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Oct 2 or more likely the Grp 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on October 8.' Then, if all goes as planned, Sincero will tackle the $3 million Cox Plate at Moonee Valley on Oct 22.
