Memsie Stakes Day

Despite the unfortunate abscence of rising star African Pulse - recovering from injury after treatement for a cut leg - Ballymore have a busy weekend ahead kicking off with four runners at Caulfield on Saturday.

First up is the lightly raced About Square who makes his Australian debut in the Gr.3 McNeil Stakes.

Due to jump from barrier nine for Luke Currie, the son of Refuse To Bend won at debut at Te Rapa in late April - stepping up to stakes class at his next outing and finishing a game second in the Great Northern Foal Stakes at Ellerslie.

"He is a very interesting runner," Michael Moroney said, "he has good New Zealand form and we will have to see if he measures up here."

"He has enough speed to be competitive at the 1200m," he added, "but he will be better over a bit further."

Having his first start since mid-May, the classy Wall Street begins his spring campaign in the day's feature event, the Gr.2 Memsie Stakes.

Whilst his best recent form has been over the mile and further, the eight-year-old has come up very well.

"We have been really happy with him," said Moroney, "and his lovely draw (barrier two) is a big help."

"He may want a bit of sting out of the track but he is going well."

Another of our spring hopefuls runs on Saturday - Sabrage taking his place in the Listed Slickpix Stakes over 1700m.

Unfortunately he has not fared well in the barrier draw (gate 16) but he strips fitter for his first run and he is a horse who improves quickly with racing.

"It's a horror draw but his work has been good and we expect a better run from him - he just needs a bit of luck."

Debuting for the stable in the same race, Red Eye Special has drawn a better gate - to start from barrier 7 for Darren Gauci.

"He is a stayer but he has a bit of speed so he can put himself in the first half of the race. But he will at his best over further."
