Edit to test Kosciuzko credentials on Doomben.

Trainer Cody Morgan will know which way he goes in a handy galloper edit after Saturday’s results at Doomben.

A second appearance at Kosciuszko, now $2m, could be in the cards if the former Kiwi raider puts together a forward show in Saturday’s 1200m contest at Doomben.

The son of the Swiss ace, he finished fourth in his second start in Australia in the 2021 race to Art Cadeau.

“Obviously he was fourth in Cossey last year, so going[to Kosciuszko]wouldn’t be justified if he didn’t run in the top two on Saturday,” said Morgan.

“I just want to give him a few runs, and if he justifies it, I’d like to back him off heading for Kosciuszko.

“Luke Murrell and I were talking about him yesterday, Edith is a horse after all. have so many talents.

“But because of his racing pattern, his winning record will never be high.”

Edith, who liked to bet on bookies for a $5.50 chance, was handed a Barrier 16 draw by the visitors, but the scratch softened the blow.

“When he drew 16, I flicked a message to Luke[Murrell]and told him to wait a week. We came to Barrier 10 or 11,” Morgan said. He said.

“He comes back around Doomben, which isn’t ideal, but you want to see him really hit the line and really strong.”

Saturday will be Edith’s first appearance in Brisbane, but Wrigrate joins Morgan’s Brisbane team, which has proven to be a happy hunting ground in previous campaigns.

Nearly half of Ligulate’s wins were north of the New South Wales border, where steady sprinting resumed on Saturday following wind manipulation.

Like Edit, Ligulate faced The Kosciuszko in 2020 when they fell behind It’s Me, but took it to another level with a longer trip in Brisbane.

The now seven-year-old is a successful sprinter, but Morgan would love to see him come back and make a strong difference.

“I just go back and hit the line and hope he peaks in second and third.”

“He’s a great networking horse and has made nearly half a million dollars.”

Ligulate is rated a $10 chance to score first on Saturday.
