Lightly raced colt Brockhoff will bypass the Run To The Rose in Sydney with trainer Ciaron Maher preferring to keep him at home for the McNeil Stakes at Caulfield.

He will take on Ready For Victory in Saturday’s Group Three sprint which will be his third race start.

The Mick Price-trained Ready For Victory, fourth in the Golden Slipper, will be having his first start since finishing seventh in the ATC Sires’ Produce.

Brockhoff finished second last in the Group Three Chairman’s Stakes at Sandown on debut in February and resumed with a comfortable two-length win in a maiden at Bairnsdale last week.

“He’s always shown nice ability, hence why we kicked him off in the stakes race as a two-year-old,” Maher said.

“But he pulled up shin sore after that.

“He was quite soft going into the maiden and he still had a look around when he got to the front.”

Maher said the colt had come on nicely despite a short turnaround from his first-up run to Saturday’s McNeil.

Brockhoff is among 17 nominations for the McNeil.

The Maher-trained VRC Oaks winner Set Square also begins her spring campaign at the Caulfield meeting.

Rather than run her at Group One level in the Memsie Stakes first-up, Maher plans to start the mare in an open handicap.
