Flying Feet will attempt to nail down his spot in the Gr.1 Vodafone New Zealand Derby (2400m) when he has his first look around Ellerslie a fortnight before the March 3 feature.
The son of Ocean Park has won once from three appearances and last time out he was a luckless second behind The Mayor at Matamata.
“It was a very good performance and nice to see him relax so well and hit the line strongly,” trainer Joe Waldron said. “Reverse the runs and the result might have been different. We’ll push on to the Derby and he’ll run in the Avondale Guineas before that.”
