A return race for comeback stayer Lamasery remains undecided despite the Caulfield Cup hopeful holding a nomination for Saturday's Missile Stakes.
Trainer David Vandyke has the multiple stakeswinner in the Group Three Missile Stakes (1200m) entries at Warwick Farm but he said it was likely the Warwick Stakes, or even next month's Chelmsford Stakes, would be the gelding's spring starting point.
Lamasery, who has not raced since the Zipping Classic last November, was among 222 Caulfield Cup nominations released on Tuesday.
"We've even thrown him in the Cox Plate nominations as well as the Caulfield Cup," Vandyke said.
"The main goal firstly will be the (Group One) Metropolitan and then we'll consider the Caulfield Cup.
"We already know he relishes the Melbourne way of going and I think a race like that (Caulfield Cup) would be well up his alley.
"He'll more than likely get a run in the Caulfield Cup so that's a serious consideration."
Lamasery has had a gradual build-up to his planned spring return including two recent barrier trials.
"We were tossing up whether to run in the Missile or trial him again next Monday," Vandyke said.
"I just think we're probably better off going to another trial before we consider raceday plans.
"If it ends up with a very small field we might have to reconsider but at this stage with the nominations and the likely field he won't be going around."
Lamasery won three stakes races last spring and was third in the Metropolitan at Randwick.
Vandyke said arthritic changes in the base of the cannon bone in three legs was the reason for Lamasery's lengthy time away from the races.
The Gerald Ryan-trained Adnocon was a late nomination for the weight-for-age Missile on Tuesday with Group Two winner Pinwheel the highest-rated entry.
Gai Waterhouse has added Sherocksmyworld to the nominations for the meeting's support feature, the Listed Rosebud (1200m) for three-year-olds.
