Fiveandahalfstar spelling at present after he was found to have a fetlock injury following victory in the Group 1 BMW (2400m).
Connections had been eyeing of lucrative spring features such as the Cox Plate, Melbourne Cup and Caulfield Cup after Fiveandahalfstar fought out the finish in each of his five starts during the autumn.
Cummings was hopeful Fiveandahalfstar would have recovered from the injury by now however instead the Hotel Grand gelding will likely continue spelling for the next month.
