Spring Carnival contender Sincero is set to trial at Rosehill Gardens on Monday, August 5. It will be his first public appearance since running ninth behind Ocean Park in last year’s Cox Plate.

Trainer Stephen Farley today told Racing Network that Sincero had done everything right in his comeback after missing the autumn with a minor ligament issue.

“It’s all good at this stage and he’s due to have his first trial at Rosehill on the fifth (of August),” Farley told RN this morning.

Farley decided to miss the autumn with Sincero after he strained a ligament off his suspensory.

It became slightly inflamed, but at the time Farley described the spell as purely precautionary.

“He’s 100 per-cent sound at the moment and our aim is to come to Melbourne first-up for the Memsie Stakes,” Farley said.

Last year Sincero scored an impressive win first-up in the Memsie and Farley is looking to go back-to-back in the now Group1 $350,000 Memsie Stakes over 1400 metres at Caulfield, on August 31.

“If he’s not ready we’ll stay in Sydney and run first-up in the Tramway.”

In 2011 Sincero won the Tramway in Sydney after winning the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane during the winter.

“I’m also going to be keeping a very close watch on the weather in Melbourne and Sydney this time with him,” Farley said.
