Donning owner Sir Robert Ogden's pink and mauve silks,the four-year-old surprise victor at Newmarket of the Group 2 Princess Of Wales's sportingbet.com Stakes, has Noseda continuing to produce big ideas.

Success overseas is not new for the trainer with charge Wilko previously winning the 2004 Breeders' Cup Juvenile and runner up in the 2006 Dubai World Cup.

Noseda said, "I was delighted with his performance. He started cantering again but future plans for him are still a little fluid.

"I have spoken to Sir Robert Ogden and his racing manager Barry Simpson and we are looking at the Irish St Leger and perhaps a tilt at the Melbourne Cup could be an end of season target."

Meanwhile, after being sent off favourite, Formosina disappointed for Noseda in the 32Red.com Superlative Stakes with a last place finish, for which the trainer took the blame for running Daniel Pittack's juvenile too soon after his 12 days prior Group 2 Railway Stakes success.

"We can totally write off his run as he was just flat from his win in the Railway Stakes," the trainer told his website. "I made a mistake running him back so quickly."
