SATURDAY AT BALLARAT

Three runners for the team at Ballarat on Saturday including two debutants in the $200,000 Magic Millions Clockwise Classic.

Moroney has been in New Zealand this week attending the sale of Ready-to-Run Two-Year-Olds and is eagerly anticipating the debuts of Hawker Hurricane and Alburq in Saturday’s Clockwise Classic at Ballarat.

Hawker Hurricane and Alburq went to Ballarat for the right-handed trials and Moroney was satisfied with their performances.

A first-crop son of Deep Field, Hawker Hurricane (pictured) won a jumpout over 800m at Flemington on November 2 before heading to Ballarat where he finished fourth over 800m behind Ancestry.

“I thought his Flemington jumpout was quite impressive and his effort going right-handed was very pleasing,” Moroney said.

“He was posted three and four wide but Mark Zahra who rode him said he was on his right leg all the way and handled the corner easily.

“The barrier draw has been kind to both of them and while I’m thinking 1200m might suit both of them better they are both there to run well.

“We’re all in the same situation on Saturday but I think both of ours are going the right way and it is just good to have two in the race.”

Alburq is a first-crop son of Rubick which cost $260,000 as a yearling. He finished third in a 800m jumpout at Flemington on November 2 behind Art Collection before finishing runner-up to Fact Or Fable over 800m at Ballarat on November 15.

“He’s got a bit of size about him and a powerful sort,” Moroney said. “He’s getting better with experience but he does look as though he has inherited some of the speed of his sire.”

Last start winner Pedro Ximenex is the other runner for the stable in race three, the Benchmark 78 Handicap over 2300m with Rhys McLeod to ride.

It is the fourth run this preparation for the son of High Chaparral, which got up late to score over 2240m at Geelong on November 10.

“This is a stronger race but he will appreciate the 2300m and the prospect of a wet track,” Moroney said.

“The track at the moment is rated a soft 6 with more rain forecast and with ordinary luck in the run I feel he is a good chance in a stronger race.”
