Humidor will attempt to defend his title in the Gr.1 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday.
The New Zealand-bred and owned gelding has been on the sidelines with injury since his third-placing in the Gr.1 Cox Plate (2040m) last October and Ciaron Maher, who trains in partnership with David Eustace, is happy with his progress leading into Saturday’s race.
“I am quite happy with the progression he’s made through the prep, he’s got a good base on him,” Maher said.
“He had a little blow here on Tuesday morning. He worked well. He’ll improve off the back of the run, but I am happy where he is.”
Maher will also line-up Cliff’s Edge in Saturday’s contest and is hoping for a good showing from both horses.
“Hopefully he could run second behind Cliff,” Maher said. “That would be ideal.”
