Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor is hoping Best Solution can book his ticket to Australia by winning Sunday’s G1 Grosser Preis Von Berlin at Hoppegarten.
The four-year-old colt comes to this important target off the back of a fine win in the G2 Princess of Wales’s Stakes on Newmarket’s July Course.
The sire of Kodiac has continued to make solid progress and bin Suroor believes he may prove a suitable contender for Australia’s coveted G1 double of the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
“He has been working very well at home and is in good form, and I am expecting him to run well. The distance (one and a half miles) should suit him,” said the 51-year-old.
“If he can win at Hoppegarten then the option of Melbourne becomes a reality. I will talk to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed before finalising plans,”
