Adam Trinder yesterday made the call to delay the start of star filly Mystic Journey’s (Needs Further) Cox Plate (Gr 1, 2040m) campaign with the rising four-year-old a non acceptor for Saturday’s Bletchingly Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m).
The Australian Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) and All-Star Mile (1600m) winner is now scheduled to make her return in the new season, with the P B Lawrence Stakes (Gr 2, 1400m) on August 17 at Caulfield locked in as her first-up race.
The Tasmanian trainer elected to bypass the Bletchingly due to rain in Melbourne on Tuesday night and the forecast for more in the lead-up to the Caulfield meeting this weekend.
