Tavago underwent a vet inspection on Thursday morning, and after getting a pass mark, his co-trainer Trent Busuttin is weighing up throwing the Australian Derby winner into the Group 1 Sydney Cup on Saturday week.

It is a phenomenal transformation in a matter of days, the horse found to be lame in the off-fore leg after finishing last in The BMW and there was a thought it may have been a tendon issue.

But after Racing NSW vet Dr Craig Suann cast his eye over the Tavistock gelding, he found 'the gelding's condition had improved since Saturday and whilst the gelding is a poor mover in front, there was no discernible favouring of either foreleg'.

Tavago still has to continue to show he has overcome the lameness that cast doubt on his autumn campaign, but a crack at the A$2m two-mile feature on April 8 has now been touted as one option.

The next hurdle for Tavago will come at the Gosford trials on Tuesday, where Dr Suann will examine him pre- and post-trial as the final litmus test before a crack at the Sydney Cup.
