Exosphere seems like a horse where the world is his limit, but against a superstar field are you willing to forgive him for his run in the Coolmore where he could only manage fourth down the straight?
Exosphere is currently a $2.30 chance with Ladbrokes while they have seasoned superstars Chataqua $2.80, Delectation $7 and Terravist $8. Then there is also the trifecta from the Coolmore entered as well with winner Japonisme $10, Keen Array $12 and Counterattack $19.
In an indication of how he is traveling James Mcdonald has changed his mind after his last two trials and will now head to Melbourne to partner the son or Lonhro.
“Everything is fine with him, he is ticking along nicely,” said Godolphin trainer John O’Shea.
“I’ve kept him up here in Sydney for as long as possible and he will head to Melbourne later in the week.
“He worked as good as we could hope today and looking forward to Saturday.”
If Exo was to win he’d become the first three year old since Fastnet Rock in 2005 to take out the Lightning Stakes.
