WANGOOM Handicap hopeful Inn Keeper resumes for Warrnambool trainer Symon Wilde in a $125,000 sprint race at Caulfield on Saturday.
The Wilde stable won the 2009 Wangoom Handicap with Arch Symbol and are hoping to add another Warrnambool May Racing Carnival trophy to their cabinet with Inn Keeper in the feature 1200-metre race at the carnival.
"Inn Keeper has been a very good horse for the stable," Wilde said.
"He's won seven of eleven and collected prize-money in ten races. He's ultra-consistent. I've been very pleased with his work in the lead up to Saturday's race.
"He's had a couple of good solid jump-outs at Camperdown.
"The Caulfield run will dictate if he needs another run before the Wangoom. It's just wait and see if he needs another run but we'll have a better idea after Saturday."
Inn Keeper, who is a $7.50 chance in the early betting markets for Saturday's 1200-metre race will be ridden by Jason Maskiell.
The $175,000 Wangoom Handicap will be run on May 1, the middle day of the three day carnival.
Fellow Warrnambool trainers Jarrod McLean, Daniel Bowman and Matthew Williams have runners at the Caulfield meeting while Ciaron Maher has multiple runners at Caulfield and Randwick.
Maher, who trains in partnership with David Eustace saddles up Extra Brut and Global Exchange in the $2 million Australian Derby, Aloisia in the $3 million Doncaster Mile, Loving Gaby and Dubious run in the $1 million Inglis Sires at Randwick.
