“The All-Star Mile is definitely an option for him in Melbourne next year but first we’ll get this race out of the way,” Massingham said.
“I even think the Stradbroke might be a good race for him next year.
“But all that will be up to Toby now he’s training him.”
Massingham, who remains a part-owner in The Harrovian, rates the David Vandyke-trained Baccarat Baby as the main threat.
“At the weights Baccarat Baby looks the danger as we meet Profit 4kgs better for beating him,” he said.
“Niccanova is not a bad horse either so he’s a big threat too.”
Niccanova is trained at Toowoomba by Steve Tregea who is shooting for his third successive Bernborough following Niccanova’s win last year and Bergerac in 2018.
Massingham is amazed by The Harrovian’s fighting qualities after he nearly died from a severe bout of travel sickness after being bought in Victoria.
“On the way up from Brisbane, I got a call on a Friday morning from the transport bloke, Les Rudd,” Massingham said.
“I’ll never forget it, he told me the horse was sick and he didn’t think he would survive another hour but he did.”
