Ballymore's weekend

A busy weekend looms for Ballymore with runners over the next few days at Flemington, Bairnsdale and Werribee.

At headquarters we are looking forward to saddling up two runners - Hiphopopotamus and Mythical both nice chances.

An encouraging second stepping up to 2400m at Caulfield last time out, Hiphopopotamus is even better suited over the Flemington 2500m and we could not be happier with his progess since that last run.

"He is as well as we can get him," Michael Moroney said.

"He is coming off a good run and he should prove hard to beat."

Nicely drawn in barrier 3 in the Rain Lover Handicap - the third race on the card - Hiphopopotamus will be ridden by Lisa Cropp.

Also faring well in the barrier draw (gate 1), Mythical contests the final event, the Jezabeel Handicap over 2000m.

The daughter of Thorn Park caught the eye doing her best work late over 1800m at Flemington last start - jockey Dwayne Dunn (who again takes the ride) telling the stable that she definitely felt like a Saturday class mare.

"A bit of rain would help," Moroney reported, "but she comes off a very nice run and we are confident that she will run well again."

It is harder to be confident about the chances of imported mare Marie de Guise in the fifth event at Bairnsdale on Saturday, the five-year-old needing to improve on what she has shown us so far.

"In saying that it is not a strong field," Moroney said, "but after this run we will assess where she is at."

To Werribee on Sunday where Flashy Fella takes his place in the third race, a 1400m maiden with Lisa Cropp to ride.

"He meets a handy maiden field," Moroney said, "but he is a nice horse who did not have a lot of luck last start (fourth at Terang first up since June) and we expect the distance to suit."
