SPRING HOPEFULS SET FOR JUMP OUTS

A Melbourne Cup hopeful and a previous winner are set to head to the trials at Geelong on Wednesday in a bid to get the Spring Campaigns on course for trainer Danny O’Brien after a long period out with injury

Two Cup hopefuls set for jump outs

Former Melbourne Cup winner Vow and Declare and stablemate Young Werther are set to head to Geelong on Wednesday for a long awaited jump out as trainer Danny O’Brien maps out a cautiously optimistic Spring Campaign for the pair.

The Geelong jumpout will be Vow and Declare’s second since recovering from a tendon issue, while Young Werther will be making his first public appearances since finishing eighth in the Caulfield Cup last year.

Young Werther had been looking good in last years Spring Campaign having nearly upset one of 2021’s performers of the year Incentivise in the Group One Turnbull before failing a CT Scan that stopped him appearing in the Melbourne Cup.

After prolonged spells on the sidelines which ruled them out of the Autumn a decision was made by connections to take a long and slow approach to there returns.

“(Vow And Declare) had a little tendon issue we’re hoping we’re on top of now,” O’Brien said.

“He pulled through really well (first Flemington jumpout), he looks great and we’re cautiously optimistic he can get back (Cups campaign).

“I don’t want to count our chickens yet, (but) it will be rewarding if he gets back there.”

Melbourne Cup winner Vow and Declare in particular has struggled with injuries restricting him to just 3 starts since his 2019 Cup win.

He currently sits as a $101 chance in the pre nomination Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup markets while Young Werther sits at $34 for the Caulfield Cup in pre nominations.
