Saverio will be keen to kick a few goals on his return to the track at Belmont.
He returns in the TABtouch Maiden over 1200m following a strong trial performance, but it will be his first time at the races since November 2011.
His Zarantz and First Impressions form looks good, albeit from a few seasons ago, and he is well in the market.
The concern is the barrier, he and jockey Matthieu Autier exit from gate 13.
“He’d be a chance if he drew well, but he’ll go back and should be hitting the line hard,” co-trainer Todd Harvey said.
Wayside also resumes for the Harvey Racing team after a successful Geraldton Cup campaign last time he was in work.
If he shows the same form, a float ride to Kalgoorlie for the Cup could be on the cards.
He is engaged in the Devil’s Lair Handicap over 1400m.
Wayside is yet to win first-up and generally takes benefit from racing.
Shaun McGruddy has a good affiliation with the big fellow and the pair have drawn gate seven.
