O'Brien has plans for Vigor

Trainer Danny O'Brien will contemplate heading to the Western Australian summer carnival with Vigor after the galloper's win in the Grazia Trophy on Saturday.

Despite ducking in up the straight, Vigor ($7.50) was too classy for his rivals, winning comfortably by one and a half lengths from Voice Commander ($8.50), with Arlington ($6) running home late for third three quarters of a length away.

"He won a couple of races fairly easily as a three-year-old and a couple of other times he just messed it up," O'Brien said. "Today he won with a bit in hand and still did a bit wrong."

"He wasn't getting tired or anything just a bit of inexperience."

O'Brien said races such as the $750,000 Railway Stakes (1600m) on November 22 and the $418,000 Perth Cup (2400m) on January 1 were possibilities for the four-year-old son of O'Reilly.

"He can get out to the 2400, we'll just see how he handles it and the timing to get him over there," O'Brien said.

"He's still got plenty left in the tank for this spring, he hasn't had much racing."
