Rhythm To Spare to Kilmore Cup

One of the feature events of a busy weekend in Victoria is Sunday's $130,000 Listed Kilmore Cup and we are looking forward to saddling up one of the race's major contenders Rhythm To Spare.

Back to his best with a dominant performance at Flemington on Emirates Stake Day, Rhythm To Spare is amongst the favourites for the Kilmore Cup with an in-form Mark Zahra to take the ride.

"He has his fair share of weight (60kg)," Michael Moroney noted, "and not the easiest draw (barrier 8) but he can go forward again and providing he gets the right run he should prove hard to beat."

Moroney was happy to see a bit of rain about in the lead-up to the weekend, Rhythm To Spare a horse at his best when the going is not too firm.

Always showing talent, but not always having the best of luck, Rhythm To Spare has nevertheless maintained a good winning strike rate throughout a career hindered by injury, winning seven of his 26 starts and amassing over $419,000 in stakes.

Earlier in the day we have Arbitrage contesting the 1900m Kingsgate Village Handicap and whilst he too has drawn out (barrier ten for Jake Noonan), he has progressed nicely since a smart maiden victory at Kilmore a couple of weeks ago.

"He is back to the scene of the crime and we have been very happy in the way in which he has trained on," Moroney said.

"Jake knows him well and he is a horse we have always had a bit of time for. He should run another great race."
