For trainer Noel Mayfield-Smith there will never be another horse as good as Landsighting but Famous Seamus is challenging for second position.
As well as Landsighting, winner of the Stradbroke Handicap in 2000, Mayfield-Smith has trained In Top Swing and Angst to Group One victories.
So far a second to Malavio in the Listed Civic Stakes (1400m) in is the best black type performance by Famous Seamus but his trainer is looking for him to change that in Saturday's feature sprint on City Tattersalls day at Randwick, the Lightning (1100m).
The winner of four of his 10 starts, Famous Seamus put in a sub-par run when out of the money in the Group Two Shorts on September 22 and Mayfield-Smith gave him a barrier trial at Randwick on Friday to get him ready for the Lightning.
"I was very pleased. He won his trial at Randwick in the fastest time of the day," Mayfield-Smith said.
"He runs in the Lightning at Randwick and we'll look at the options after that.
"Melbourne is the only place we can go so we will look at the calendar.
"Because he was in over winter he is a little behind the other spring sprinters.
"I still believe he is the second best horse I've ever trained.
"None will go past Landsighting but Famous Seamus can get right up there."
Robyn Freeman-Key has ridden Famous Seamus in all his starts and will again be aboard in the Lightning.
