WINNING CHANCES IN THE CITY ON SATURDAY

Three runners in two states for Ballymore Stables on a soggy Saturday in Melbourne.

War Legend and Lord Barrington run at Sandown where the rain continues to fall while Milwaukee is in Sydney to run on firmer ground at Rosehill.

War Legend is in race eight, the Ladbrokes Benchmark 90 Handicap over 1800m where he will be ridden by Ryan Moloney and jump from barrier 11 in the 12-horse field.

After three runs back this preparation Mike Moroney feels War Legend is primed to run a big race.

“His work has been first class and although he has drawn wide we might find that may be the best place to be as the day unfolds,” Moroney said.

“He is ready to run very well and this looks a lovely race for him with the likelihood of a soft track.”

Lord Barrington drew the outside of 19 in the last race at Sandown but after a slew of scratchings the field is reduced to 11.

Lke War Legend, Lord Barrington is ready to run a big race at his fifth run this preparation and the scratchings have made his task a bit easier.

“He is working extremely well on the track and looks in great order,” Moroney said.

“He will certainly appreciate the rain affected track and he has the speed early to overcome the wide draw.

“The 1300m is more of a query - particularly if the track gets too heavy. In what looks a very open race I think he will be competitive.”

Milwaukee (pictured with Lord Barrington) was also accepted with at Sandown but was sent North to avoid the rain.

He runs in the last race of the day, the Benchmark 85 Handicap over 1300m where he will jump from barrier one with Christian Reith in the saddle.

Milwaukee arrived at the Ballymore Sydney stables on Friday morning and traveled up well.

“He had a right-handed gallop on Tuesday morning at Flemington with Lord Barrington and worked impressively,” Moroney said.

“With the heavy rains forecast here in Melbourne it was an easy decision to send him to Sydney.

“From barrier one he will be on the speed and is a strong winning chance.

“This will also give us a guide to whether we continue on with plans to run him at the Magic Millions in January.”
