Mike Moroney will be chasing a second Sydney Group One win in as many meetings when veteran stayer Mister Impatience lines up in the rescheduled Sydney Cup.

Tivaci gave Moroney his 49th Group One win in Saturday's All Aged Stakes at Randwick.

A decision on whether he is retired to Waikato Stud without another run or presses on to Brisbane has yet to be made.

On Saturday, seven-year-old gelding Mister Impatience runs in the Sydney Cup (3200m) which is being re-run after being declared a 'no-race' at Randwick on April 8 when two horses fell coming out of the home straight the first time.

Mister Impatience was among the horses pulled up by their riders around 1000m from home while jockeys in front did not hear the call and continued.

"He came through it well and he's a tough old warrior now" Moroney said.

"Jay Ford thought he was travelling like he was going to run right in the finish"

"It's a long way out and probably there were other riders thinking they were travelling like the winner as well, but he thought he was travelling like the winner at the time. He was just about to ask him for an effort"

Ballymore was also represented by Vengeur Masque in the original Sydney Cup but he has now gone to the paddock.

Moroney will be happy if it's a genuinely run 3200m on Saturday as Mister Impatience is an experienced two-miler having won twice at the distance in a Queensland Cup and a Wellington Cup.

"It looks like the three-year-old filly (Lasqueti Spirit) will go along, so if it's truly run it will really suit him" Moroney said.

"And if they get the rain they are supposed to be going to get, it wouldn't worry him either"

Eleven of the 16 nominations taken on Monday were in the original 14-horse field while new entries are Boom Time, Harlem, Lasqueti Spirit, Rock On and Self Sense.

Annus Mirabilis was given the green light to run by trainer Stuart Webb after a gallop on Tuesday while Godolphin visitor Polarisation was passed fit after an injury scare. – NZ Racing
