Racing powerhouse Godolphin sent a number of runners back to the track this week with Golden Eagle winner Colette showing signs of promise in her first hit out since finishing last campaign in April

Godolphin trained Colette returns to the track in August

Jockey Rachel King rode Colette in Monday’s barrier trial and said the Godolphin Group 1 winner had returned ‘as well as ever’ in a star studded line up at Hawkesbury.

Colette was flanked by the likes of Doncaster Mile winner Cascadian and Golden Rose hopefuls Ingratiating and Paulele. 

King didn’t go flat to the floor with Colette and kept in full control whilst completing the 800m heat. The Sydney hoop kept the Godolphin runner widest of all before finishing 6th behind, three lengths of the winner Rebukes.

“She feels like she has come back in really good order,” King, who partnered Colette to win the Group 2 Apollo Stakes in the autumn, said.

“She is always pretty fresh and full of herself in her first trial back so that‘s pretty standard for her but the feeling she gave me, she is as well as ever.

“That last preparation she was really full of confidence and I think she has bounced out of that nicely.”

Monday’s trial is most likely the first of two for Colette with a return date in August the most likely approach for the stable. 

August’s biggest races and likely targets for the stable star are the Group 1 Winx Stakes at Randwick on 21st August or the Memsies Stakes on the 28th August at Caulfield Racecourse.

TAB’s all in markets currently have Colette as an $8 shot to win the Winx Stakes and an $11 chance for the Memsies. 

Whichever route Colette takes leading into the summer trainer James Cummings will be hoping the mare can capture the form which saw her win the Apollo Stakes in April, beating home Verry Elleegant by 2 lengths.
