Symon Wilde, who trains Whelan in partnership with his father Bill, said the eight-year-old was a certain starter in the $60,000 race over 2000 metres.

Wilde said his runner’s preparation hit a hurdle after he finished seventh of nine in a 2040m race at Moonee Valley on February 3.

“He pulled up with a bit of a cough,” Wilde said.

“He’s not coughing now. He’s going into the race a little on the fresh side but he won it last year and he is down in the weights.”

Wilde suggested the field was tougher this year but, with just 54 kilograms, Whelan would be in contention.

He will be tested with Camperdown Cup winner Population and last year’s Mortlake and Terang cups winner Diamondsondinside in the field.

“He goes well around there. We are really happy with him,” Wilde said.

Wilde said Whelan, the 2011 Penshurst Cup winner, was better suited to the country cups than city races.

He could be joined by stablemate Constant Force in the field, but Wilde said a decision wouldn’t be made on the gelding’s involvement until tomorrow morning.

“He is probably an 80 per cent chance of running,” he said.

Wilde said Constant Force was being monitored after pulling up a “little distressed” following his last start at Flemington last week.

If he ran, the distance would suit, Wilde said.

Tomorrow will be the 150th running of the Colac Gold Cup. Polwarth MP Terry Mulder said the Coalition government had kicked in $8662 to help mark the celebration.

The funding has been used to bring Living Legends, international sprinter Apache Cat and 1999 Melbourne Cup winner Rogan Josh, to the course.

It has also been used to fund free buses for punters from Warrnambool and along the Great Ocean Road.

The Colac Turf Club has also hired a large marquee to hold a fund-raising luncheon for the Colac Area Health Cancer Service.
