Golden Slipper favourite Tassort in doubt

Golden Slipper favourite Tassort in doubt

Golden Slipper favourite Tassort’s campaign is in disarray with the colt found to have bruising to his off-fore foot.

Trainer James Cummings has told stewards Tassort will not run in Saturday’s Todman Stakes and is “50/50” to take part in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 23.

Cummings said he planned to start Tassort in the Pago Pago Stakes on March 16 if the colt’s foot improved sufficiently.

Racing NSW Veterinarians will inspect Tassort next week.

The Godolphin colt, who won on debut and was beaten by Time To Reign in the Silver Slipper, remained the $6 Golden Slipper favourite on Monday.

Time To Reign is now the $3.50 favourite for the Todman (1200m) with trainer Gary Portelli saying the colt will have a solid hit-out at Warwick Farm on Tuesday morning.
