Post Impressionist, the dominant victor of the Group 3 N.E. Manion Cup (2400m), remains a potential contender for Saturday’s prestigious Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m), as confirmed by trainer William Haggas who submitted his nomination on Monday.

Following his remarkable come-from-behind triumph in the Group 3 event at Rosehill last Saturday, the son of Teofilo has surged to the forefront of the betting with top horse racing bookmakers for the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m). Nick Williams, son of owner Lloyd Williams, expressed thoughts on a potential swift turnaround, stating, “It’s got me wondering whether he should be running next Saturday, to be honest with you.

“I’m sure he (Haggas) and dad (Lloyd) will be discussing that over the coming days.

“We’ll see how the horse pulls up. He’s done that pretty easily, it was a pretty soft win, so let’s wait and see.”

In addition to his Sydney Cup favouritism for April 20, Post Impressionist has also secured a prominent position, sitting at +1400, in the betting markets for the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).
