The Tony and Calvin McEvoy stable is looking forward to a fresh Veight tackling a straight race at Flemington on the opening day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Having finished second to Griff in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 14, Veight has been freshened for a tilt at the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on Saturday.
Veight had a look at the Flemington straight track he will race on last Friday in an 800m jump-out.
Calvin McEvoy said Veight wore blinkers in the jump-out in which he was ridden by Jamie Kah.
Veight has proven a little wayward in his last couple of starts, but McEvoy said the colt strode out truly where he was also fitted with a Tom Thumb bit.
"He went down the straight and was really good. We wanted to see him go straight, and he did. He went beautifully straight," McEvoy said.
"We weren't there to do much. No-one in that jump-out really was and hence the slower time than the other heat.
