BALLARAT trainer Dan O'Sullivan will press forward to the group 1 Emirates Stakes with British General after the horse's gutsy win at Caulfield today.
The six-year-old broke through for his second victory at listed level in the Weekend Hussler Stakes, 1400m.
British General was headed by Bello down the home straight but kicked back to record his first win at the track in seven attempts.
O'Sullivan now plans to run the horse in the group 3 Chatham Stakes, 1400m, on Derby Day (November 2) before heading to the $1million Emirates, 1600m, the following weekend at Flemington.
British General has had just one previous run over the mile - a sixth at Flemington in April - when O'Sullivan was thinking of a possible start in the group 1 Doncaster Mile at Easter.
The son of General Nediym, who triumphed in the listed Chester Manifold, 1400m, early this year, has now won eight races from just 21 career starts.
