23/07/02 Don Eduardo "Tremendous" as Future Undecided
r2doneduardo.jpg (12356 bytes)Leading Melbourne trainer Lee Freedman is confident the best is still to come with this season's AJC Derby winner Don Eduardo.

While saying the colt has returned to work in great style, the leading mentor is still unsure where the colt would be headed toward at the end of the year.

Owned by Gooree Park Stud's Eduardo Cojuangco, Don Eduardo is a chance of emulating Better Loosen Up as Australia's only Japan Cup winner later in the year. However, it is understood Freedman is favouring a tilt at the Melbourne Cup.

A record breaking yearling in New Zealand, Don Eduardo has been back in work for seven weeks with Freedman.

r2doneduardo2.jpg (9802 bytes)"He's been back in the stable for seven weeks and he looks tremendous," Freedman said.

"He's really strengthened well in his break since winning the (AJC) Derby in Sydney."

The colt, who is by Zabeel and a three quarter brother to the champion Octagonal, is expected to trial in about three weeks before being aimed at an early weight-for-age campaign before his Cup target.

Don Eduardo is one of the early favourites for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and is also high in the market for the Cox Plate in October.
