“I popped Higher Realm in the Benchmark race to get some weight off him as he had 61.5kgs - the same weight as Robig - in the Three-Year-Old,” Chillemi said.
“I’m thinking about aiming Robig and Tennessee Boy for the winter three-year-old races up here in June.
“It might be too short for Robig under his big weight as he’s come back in distance from 1600 metres to 1300 metres and now to 1200 metres.
“But if we get more rain, he’ll love it unlike Higher Realm who doesn’t like wet tracks and he may even come out if the track is heavy.
“If Higher Realm starts, he’ll go well but he’s up there in the weights where it hurts now.”
Higher Realm won his first two starts this campaign in Townsville before finishing fourth in Cairns and a last start third to Dunatun in a 1250-metre Benchmark race at Cannon Park on March 19.
Chillemi’s other starters are Boomed and Husette in the QTIS Two-Year-Old Handicap (1200m), Bet On Love in the Class 6 Handicap (1000m), and Borella and Willygood who clash in the Class 2 Handicap (1200m).
