IN-FORM pacer Cash N Flow will continue his charge towards several Group Ones when he returns to Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night.
Triumphant at his last two starts around the world class circuit, including the J D Watts Memorial a fortnight ago, Cash N Flow is engaged in the Golden Mile for trainer Craig Cross.
Cross’ schedule for the son of Mach Three involves crossing the border for a pair of majors.
Along with aiming for the Len Smith Mile in Menangle on June 30, Cross is looking to head north with the gelding.
Cross has set his sights on the Sunshine Sprint at Albion Park on July 13 and The Blacks A Fake a week later.
The Blacks A Fake is the last leg of the 2018/19 Grand Circuit.
“The Len Smith is what we are aiming towards,” Cross said. “Given the way he has gone at his last couple of starts he warrants a crack at a race like that.
“If he keeps racing well enough we will then look at going to Queensland for the Winter Carnival.”
To Cross’ dismay Cash N Flow’s task has been made difficult by two factors – the draw and the appearance of Victorian pacer Jilliby Bandit.
Cash N Flow will begin from barrier 10, with Jilliby Bandit – also the winner of his last two starts – to come from nine.
“The draw isn’t exactly in his favour,” Cross said. “It’s certainly not going to be easy from there.
“Jilliby Bandit’s addition to the field makes it tougher again and that’s without forgetting others like Joes Star Of Mia, Our Uncle Sam and Maximan.”
