Berisha On Caulfield Cup Path
Sep 15, 2016
The Robert Smerdon-trained Berisha (Al Samer) will contest Saturday's Naturalism Stakes (Gr 3, 2000m), a race that carries automatic entry into the Caulfield Cup (Gr 1, 2400m), however, the five-year-old is already assured of a start in the race having won the Mornington Cup (Listed, 2400m) in April. "He's improving with each run and he's improved out of the Heatherlie and he's still got significant improvement to come," Smerdon said. "He's ticking over well but there's still a fair bit of upside still to be had after Saturday".
