Moqueen Could Be A Midweek Runner

 

Anthony Cummings has insured against bad weather disrupting his next move with Golden Slipper emergency Moqueen.

Cummings has Moqueen entered for a midweek city-class race on Wednesday, but he has also taken the precaution of including the filly among 23 entries for a Group Three race at Rosehill on Saturday.

 

Moqueen went close to making the Golden Slipper field with her third-placed finish in the Reisling Stakes leaving her agonisingly short of enough dollars to get a start in the world's richest race for two-year-olds.

 

Instead, Moqueen is near the top of betting for the Dapto Leagues Club Handicap at Kembla Grange, although Cummings will be reluctant to run the filly on a rain-affected surface.

"We'll see about the weather. I'm not keen to run her on a track that's too wet," he said.

 

Cummings's contingency plan includes the TL Baillieu Handicap at Rosehill.

"At start in that race is equally likely," he said.

 

A Baillieu appearance would provide Randwick carnival options for the filly who has given every impression she is looking for more ground in her races.

 

"If she ran in the Baillieu and ran well over the 1400 metres then that opens up the Fernhill Handicap and the (Group One) Champagne Stakes," Cummings said.

Scratchings will decide if Moqueen is joined in the race by her stablemate Rivo Boy after the colt was made fourth emergency.

 

From champion racehorse So You Think's first crop of foals, Rivo Boy won a Randwick barrier trial on Friday.

Cummings also has Puzzling Wonder resuming in the TAB More Than Just Winning Handicap as a last-start Randwick barrier trial winner.

Top Of My List Takes Out The Listed Sydney Markets Lord Mayor's Cup 2000m

Top Of My List and Tim Clarke made it two wins in a row in taking out the Sydney Markets Lord Mayor's Cup 2000m at Rosehill yesterday . Tim Clarke had this to say on her run "She was good. She had to rise in weight today and get back on top of the ground. She was able to control the race from outside the speed. The more I ride her the more I get to know her. She likes to flow through her gears. You can't just get her to dash off the mark. I thought she gave a good kick at the top of the straight. She was vulnerable late but she kept sticking her head out ".
