Waller had nominated My Kingdom Of Fife
for both the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1500m) and the Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill on Saturday but the six-year-old will not run.
Instead Waller has selected the $125,000 Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) at Randwick on Epsom Handicap Day, October 1 as the next race.
When My Kingdom Of Fife won the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes over 2000m at Randwick on April 23 he had raced just once before in that preparation when winning the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude over 1600m on April 9.
He then went straight on to win the Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes over 1800m at the Gold Coast before running a narrow second to Scenic Shot
in the Group 1 Doomben Cup over 2020m on May 21.
Waller then spelled My Kingdom Of Fife before producing him again for a first up second, once again narrowly, to Trusting in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes
over 1600m at Warwick Farm on September 3.
With My Kingdom Of Fife coming to hand very quickly without the need for many lead-up races Waller is ensuring the he will still be fresh for the spring goal of the Cox Plate where he is currently quoted at $22 in TAB Sportsbet's market.
