"I've always had an opinion of the horse, even the first time I put him in the cart I thought he would make a very nice horse, he was a big and gangly type but he has really grown into himself in the past twelve months," Harris said.
"The plan was to trial him at Menangle on Tuesday and spend the rest of the week up here in preparation for his race this Saturday because he hasn't done a lot of travelling in his career but he isn't the only horse I have brought up, there is a few of them that have made the trip as well."
Majorlicious won his first three races at Canberra in 2011 before being turned out for a lengthy spell and resuming in May this year.
"He was a really big horse and I knew he wouldn't make it as a two year old but when he won his first three races it was during the drought at home and my track had become quite hard and he jarred up in all four fetlocks so I decided to give him a break to let him get over that."
"The six month spell turned into a twelve month break and in the end it did him the world of good because he grew into himself and then when he resumed and won a Country Series heat at Young in May he came down with a virus and I just had to back off him again but he's on top of his game again now."
Majorlicious is out of the talented racemare Bootylicious and is a half sister to the twelve time winner Blissfulicious.
"Majorlicious is stronger than his mother and his sister, they could both do a little bit of work in their races but this bloke is better."
