Trainer Grahame Begg has decided to rest promising stayer Nonconformist after not being completely satisfied with the horse’s blood work.
“His blood picture wasn’t 100 per cent spot on, so I decided to wait,” Begg said.
“He’s going to run again in a couple of weeks.
“It’s not a setback, it’s just we weren’t 100 per cent happy. He won’t miss too much.”
The son of Rebel Raider was nominated for the 1700m Handicap at Flemington on Saturday.
Nonconformist is a $19 chance in the Caulfield Cup, following his strong first up return.
Watch: Nonconformist work strongly down the outside in his return run.
