Co-trainer Mick Price has already outlined a spring plan for Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) winner Warmonger, with the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) set as the gelding’s main target.

Price mentioned that the OTI Racing-owned three-year-old would also be entered for the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m), although he expressed doubts about the horse’s readiness for the demanding 3200-metre race at this stage of his career.

“I’m not sure he’s mature enough for the Melbourne Cup as it’s a gruelling race,” Price, who trains in partnership with Michael Kent Jnr, told Racing.com.

Warmonger currently sits on the second line of Caulfield Cup betting, marked as a +1400 chance with online bookmakers.
