DISTANCE SUITS RUE DE RENNES

Mike Moroney expected the step up in distance to bring out the best in Rue de Rennes and his judgement was comfortably vindicated at Mornington on Thursday.

Allowed to settle worse than midfield by Patrick Moloney, Rue de Rennes was set alight before the home straight and powered home to win the Open Maiden Plate over 2030m by three lengths and eased towards the finish.

By the Irish Derby winner Cape Blanco out of the Group 1 Captain Cook Stakes winner Ekstreme, Rue de Rennes has been given time to develop by connections.

“She’s shaped as though she will appreciate a bit of distance as her pedigree would indicate,” Moroney said.

“She has always shown us something but taken a little bit of time to strengthen so it was pleasing to see her win like that.

“Now that she’s got her Maiden out of the way then she’ll step up again and she was certainly strong at the finish so I’d say she can probably get a bit further again.”

Congratulations to Ballymore Stables (Aust) Pty Ltd, Mr G C Cotterill and Miss K S Glindemann
