Trainer Graeme Ballantyne will set his shock Perth Cup winner Talent Show for the $400,000 Adelaide Cup (3200m) at Morphettville on March 11.
Talent Show scored one of the biggest upsets in Perth Cup history when she stormed home to beat Mr Moet in the Group 2 feature at Ascot on January 1, paying a whopping $48.90 on tote.
The Jeune mare had a seven-day break after the victory and will follow a similar path to WA stayers Guyno and Western Jewel.
She is likely to race in the $80,000 Detonator Stakes (1800m) at Ascot on February 16 before heading to Adelaide for the $115,000 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) on March 2 and the Adelaide Cup.
Guyno won the Lord Reims Stakes and ran ninth in the Adelaide Cup in 2011.
Western Jewel travelled to Adelaide after her Perth Cup win on New Year's Eve in 2011 and ran 11th in the Adelaide Cup.
Ballantyne is excited about his first interstate campaign as a trainer. "She'll have one run here then go to Adelaide for the 2600m race before the cup," he said.
"We planned to give her a week and a half off after the Perth Cup, but she only had a week off.
"She was jumping around too much and I thought I better get her in work before she did some damage to herself. She pulled up a treat after the cup."
Jockey Jarrad Noske will be offered the coming rides on Talent Show after guiding her to victory in the Perth Cup.
Noske rode Talent Show 1kg over her allotted weight of 53kg in the Perth Cup.
"He's only ridden her twice, but there's no reason he wouldn't ride her," Ballantyne said.
"Hopefully she gets into the Adelaide Cup just above the minimum weight."
ˇApprentice Natasha Faithfull copped a 30-day suspension for careless riding, which led to jockey Shaun O'Donnell's heavy fall from Geiger Rio in race six at Ascot on Saturday.
Faithfull pleaded guilty to the charge for riding Kalahaar outwards near the 50m when insufficiently clear of Geiger Rio, who subsequently blundered badly.
Geiger Rio pulled up with muscle lameness in the near foreleg and will not start for at least another fortnight.
O'Donnell will wait until tomorrow to decide if he rides this week.
"It feels like I've been hit by a train," he said.
"I'm pretty bruised and sore and I have a mild concussion, but apart from that I'm pretty right.
"I won't ride trackwork (today) and I'll leave it until Tuesday and see how I feel then.""She was jumping around I thought I better get her in work before she did some damage.""Talent Show's trainer *Graeme Ballantyne *
