Multiple Group One winner Humidor will bypass Saturday’s Gr.2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) in favour of resuming in the Gr.1 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 31.
Humidor has not been seen at the races since October last year when he was injured in the Gr.1 Cox Plate (2040m).
"We just thought he'd be better (placed in the Memsie)," co-trainer Ciaron Maher said. "We whacked him in there (the entries for Saturday's Lawrence Stakes) to see how it would go."
The New Zealand-bred and part-owned galloper won the Memsie Stakes in 2018 after an unplaced run in the PB Lawrence Stakes.
