Vengeur Masque makes Caulfield Cup!

European purchase Vengeur Masque has now officially made the Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup field on Saturday with connections upbeat about the prospect of getting to the 2016 Melbourne Cup early next month.

The scratchings of Fanatic and Big Memory have paved the way for second emergency Vengeur Masque who carries the minimum weight of 50.5kg and has drawn wide in barrier 16.

“It’s certainly not the strongest Caulfield Cup in recent years,” trainer Mike Moroney said. “And it feels as though it was worth a shot – he wasn’t that far away in the Bart Cummings and he was doing his best work late.”

Stable rider Patrick Moloney will take the mount and from barrier 16 Moroney will be looking to take a back position in the running.

“It’s looking likely we’ll go back from that draw and we just hope there is some genuine speed in the race.”

Cape Londonderry (Pentire) resumes on Saturday at Bendigo in the AgVantage UAV 0-68 Handicap over 1600m.

“It’s a nice starting point of a big roomy track and we’ll be happy if he’s coming home strong,” Moroney said.

“Either way he is going to take plenty of improvement from the run and from the wide draw we’ll look to ride him a little quieter.”

Shadow Fighter (I Am Invincible) will make his race debut at Wyong on Sunday, and on the back of an encouraging trial performance, the team are happy with his progress heading into race one on the card.

“He comes up against a small but competitive field with runners that have good race form, but our guy is quite forward and is up to running a good race.”

“Koby Jennings rode him in the the trial so we’ve elected to stick with him – I think he’s a good winning chance.
