COLETTE SPRING PREP BEGINS

One of Godolphins hottest properties is back in work this week with stable star Colette heading back from the paddock to prepare for her Spring 2021 campaign with the Cox Plate and Caulfield likely targets

The Golden Eagle winner has returned to training and is likely to be aiming at a number of August targets as a starting point for the mare.

Colette, a daughter of Hallowed Crown is considered one of the Godolphin teams best chances to achieve black type trophies again this Spring. The gun mare has returned to light work at James Cummings Agnes Banks and is likely to take on a Group 1 field first up.

“We will remain pretty open minded with her in the spring but I don’t mind the idea of her resuming pretty early on in Melbourne,” Cummings said.

“We probably look at something like the Memsie first-up but the program is such that it provides you with a smorgasbord of options.

“We will take advantage of that if there is any one avenue that might give her an advantage like a wet track.”

The Memsies Stakes is the first Group 1 on the route to Spring and is a weight for age contest over 1400m in late August.

Colette initially came out the gates flying in the Autumn beating home Kolding and Verry Elleegant first up in the Apollo Stakes. 

With ambitions high for the youngster she failed to live up to the hype with finishing 2nd in the Chipping Norton next up and then failing to make an impression on the Queen Of The Turf won by Nettoyer. 

In the all-in markets Colette currently sits as a $21 shot of the Cox Plate and a $26 shot for the Caulfield Cup.
