Bivouac sets sights on Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield

Godolphin Group One winners Bivouac and Kiamichi have shown they are ready for their autumn campaigns with barrier trial wins at Rosehill.

Golden Rose winner Bivouac won the first of two course-proper heats over 900m on Tuesday, edging Hush Writer on the line.

Last year’s Golden Slipper winner Kiamichi led all the way to beat stablemate Deprive by 2-3/4 lengths in the second 900m-trial.

Trainer James Cummings has flagged the Group One Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield on February 22 as a starting point for Bivouac.

The colt has not raced since his close second to Exceedance in the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington on November 2.
