Brazilian Pulse primed for Oaks


Sydney Morning Herald, Craig Young

MELBOURNE CUP-winning trainer Mike Moroney is not sure what impact a torrid lead-up run will have on Brazilian Pulse when she contests the AJC Australian Oaks at Randwick on Saturday.

Moroney's three-year-old is out to complete the Oaks double following her win in the VRC equivalent in the spring, when she beat Saturday's AJC Australian Derby winner Shamrocker, which is out for revenge this weekend.

A brilliant winner of the Keith Nolan Classic when conceding rivals four kilograms, Brazilian Pulse backed up a week later at Rosehill in the group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes but sat three wide without cover under jockey Craig Williams.

He knows he made a mistake, Moroney said. ''He came in and apologised. He wanted to ride her back with cover but after she jumped so good he should have went forward.

The moment you come back they keep kicking up inside you.

Brazilian Pulse finished third behind the Oaks-bound Mirjulisa Lass, and pleased Moroney in gallops at Randwick last week.

They did break a race record and it looked like she was going to drop right out of it, Moroney said of her third in the Vinery. ''But she kept coming. She is tough. I just hope it hasn't taken much out of her. It doesn't appear to have.

She'll have a bit of strong work with company on Tuesday and everything should be right.
