Forgotten Voice: Set for the Geelong Cup
Forgotten Voice is set to chance his arm in the Geelong Cup on Wednesday having missed the Caulfield Cup at the weekend.
Nicky Henderson's eight year old had hoped to secure a berth in the Emirates Melbourne Cup by posting a big display at Caulfield on Saturday but the Royal Ascot winner failed to make the cut.
Connections have had to quickly change their plans and they are now looking forward to running in the Geelong Cup as the stable's representative, Ryan O'Reilly, told www.racingvictoria.net.au.
"It was quite disappointing missing Caulfield but we have to move on from that now and the plan is to go to Geelong on Wednesday and hopefully we'll have a good run there.
"He's not the most straightforward horse to deal with but if he wasn't on his toes like he is every day we'd know that he wasn't right in himself," the 19 year old said.
Forgotten Voice hasn't run since winning at Glorious Goodwood at the beginning of August but O'Reilly revealed that connections feel that he's at his best when fresh.
"He's a horse that likes to be keen and go on that bit more but we have to keep him steady and keep him nice and fresh because we feel that he runs best when he's a bit fresh in himself and he's just like that at the moment," he commented.
