Ballymore's Weekend Trio

Three in-form horses will be representing Ballymore Stables at different race meetings this weekend and we are expecting bold showings from each - Black Tomahawk at Flemington, Court Pastoral at Newcastle and Lord Barrington at Moe.

Contesting the fifth event at Flemington, the 2000m handicap, Black Tomahawk was a gallant second to the classy Bagman over the same trip at the same track last month.

"He ran a terrific race last start and he has really trained on well," Michael Moroney enthused.

"We are claiming again (3kg for Jake Bayliss) and he comes in nicely - he should prove very hard to beat."

Meanwhile in New South Wales we have last start winner Court Pastoral taking her place in the Hunters Stayers Cup over 3200m.

Impressive saluting by 1 3/4 length in a series heat at Gosford just over a week ago, the imported Mount Nelson mare is enroute to the breeding barn for a date with hot young stallion Zoffany.

And she looks a big chance to enhance her race record before retiring, Moroney noting that she is again "a good winning chance."

"The way she ran through the line last time she looked ready for the two miles," he said, adding that the six-year-old has progressed nicely since.

"The only query would be the firmer track but she did look to have a bit in hand last start."

Lord Barrington (pictured) is our sole Sunday runner, due to take his place in the Monacellars Handicap over 1100m with Jake Noonan to ride.

In the placings at four of his last five starts, the tries hard each start and a win is not far away.

"He has been racing so well," said Moroney, "and he loves the wet. It looks the ideal race for him."
