Best Of Days is back in winning form and Godolphin trainer James Cummings is confident he can keep that run going in the Group 2 Darley Blamey Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.
The seven-year-old won the Carlyon Cup earlier this month, his first victory since winning the G1 Kennedy Cantala Stakes back in November 2018.
With that significant winning drought now over, Cummings is confident the veteran can make his presence felt again on Saturday.
Champion hoop Damien Oliver has been booked to ride from barrier nine, with Best Of Days a $5 chance.
"To see him get back to winning form last start was very satisfying," Cummings said.
"It had been a long time, but it came as no surprise, his lead-up form in Sydney had been terrific and he's continued to please the team at Flemington.
"We are confident he will handle the extra ground and the step-up in class."
The stable will also saddle up talented two-year-old colt Kallos in the Listed Very Special Kids Plate.
Cummings said he expects Kallos' form behind two rivals who were competitive in the Blue Diamond will stack up.
"He performed very well in a strong race last start behind General Beau and Anamoe," Cummings said.
"At his only run before that he was beaten a long neck when fourth at Moonee Valley. The straight track at Flemington should suit his style of racing."
