An emphatic flat victory at Wanganui won’t change plans for the five-year-old Donardo.

The Don Eduardo gelding was a runaway winner of Thursday’s Palamountains Nutrition Highweight (2060m) under rider Will Gordon.

“Hopefully, he’ll be jumping soon,” said part-owner and trainer Lucy de Lautour, who also prepares the Hawke’s Bay Hurdle (3100m) winner Kipkeino.

Donardo finished runner-up three runs back before he was unplaced at Wanganui last month.

“It was late in the day and the track was a bit too cut up,” de Lautour said.
