French import Spectroscope has acclimatised to Australia as quickly as William Buick, who will be riding for Godolphin over the Sydney autumn.
The four-year-old settled last in the field of six but Buick angled the son of Medaglia D’oro out to get the back of Extensible and he proved too strong at the finish.
Spectroscope impresses at Rosehill
“He has got nice improvement in him. The race panned out for him and William rode him beautifully,” said John O’Shea.
“We’ll bring him back in a fortnight for the Doncaster Prelude. It’ll be a good race for him to dip his toe and see what happens after that. If he was to run really well and acquit himself then we’d give consideration to something better after that.”
“All of the Medaglia’s have wonderful attitudes and that’s what makes them very, very true horses.”
Buick was gushing in his praise of Spectroscope, who could join stablemate Hauraki in the Doncaster Mile over The Championships.
“I really like him. I’ve liked him from the moment I’ve got on him,” said Buick.
“As you can see, he is a beautiful individual.”
