Group 1 winner Ugo Foscolo will be back on track on Saturday week.

“He was going to trial at Matamata tomorrow, but they’ve been cancelled, so he’ll go straight to the open 1200m on Matamata Cup day,” trainer Stephen Marsh said. “He looks great and it’s great to have him back.”

Marsh prepared Ugo Foscolo to win five of his first six starts, including the Group 1 New Zealand 2000 Guineas (1600m), before the son of Zacinto transferred to the Sydney stable of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

Muscle soreness restricted him to just one unplaced run before he returned home.
