The 2021 All-Star Mile (1600m) won’t be short of star power, with Danny O’Brien’s Russian Camelot set to hit the $5 million contest first up in the autumn.

The Underwood Stakes (1800m) winner is currently in the paddock after a grueling spring, which saw him place in the Cox Plate (2040m) and run a respectable eighth in the Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Trainer Danny O’Brien said that Russian Camelot had rested well in his time off and will return to work shortly, with the All-Star Mile the first target before a possible trip to Sydney for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m).

“He’s done well at Barwon Heads and he’ll back in work again soon,” O’Brien said.

“The plan is definitely to run him in the All-Star Mile first-up and then the Queen Elizabeth in Sydney second-up,” he said.

“He was beaten a head first-up in the Makybe Dive over a mile in the spring so we think that’s the right starting point for him.

“He could well only have those two runs then be set for the spring.”

Russian Camelot is currently the equal all-in favourite for the 2021 All-Star Mile at $11, sharing that line of betting with Arcadia Queen, and Behemoth.

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
