Warwick Farm trainer Joe Pride has always maintained Eduardo is a winning chance and that was a big part of his appeal to slot holders The Star & Arrowfield who confirmed the eight-year-old as their runner in next month’s $15m sprint classic.

Arrowfield boss John Messara said Eduardo is a “proven performer” and is effective on all track conditions and those factors make him an appealing prospect.

“That was my only drive, the horse that was going to be most competitive,’’ Messara said.

“We’re partners with The Star and while I’m assisting them we have to make sure it’s the horse with the best chance.

“If Arrowfield had a horse that would be fine but at this stage of the game, with the short time to go and the lead up race to be run on Saturday, we decided to go with this horse.”

Pride said Eduardo’s record speaks for itself with three wins from four starts in 2021, including two Group 1s, and his only defeat coming in the Group 1 TJ Smith where he finished a gallant third behind Nature Strip.

“He’s beaten Nature Strip, ran a track record at Randwick. How many horses can boast a record like that,’’ he said.

“I was confident from the start, I didn’t want to be over confident, but he’s the second highest rated sprinter in the world. They’re the Longines ratings, they’re not my ratings.”
