Descarado has reignited his Melbourne Cup campaign with a win in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse last Saturday.
Last year’s Caulfield Cup winner was a non-finisher in the 2010 Melbourne Cup after he broke down before the finish line.
Waterhouse believes his Caulfield Stakes triumph proves he is back to his best in time for the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup 2011.
“He’s come right and he’s come right at the right time,” Waterhouse said.
“I knew he would come right just the way he was training.”
Jockey Nash Rawiller admitted he was unconvinced of Descarado’s 2011 Melbourne Cup hopes earlier in his campaign.
“I said to Gai three or four weeks ago, ‘we might have to pull the plug here’ because he wasn’t coming up as we would have liked,” Rawiller said.
“To her credit, Gai has had faith all the way through.”
Descarado’s Caulfield Stakes win was his first since winning the Caulfield Cup in October last year.
