Araldo shaping well

It is a relatively quiet weekend for Ballymore Stables but we have plenty to look forward to in the next couple of weeks with Michael Moroney buoyant regarding the Melbourne Cup chances of Araldo.

Pulling up well from his eye-catching Caulfield Cup fifth, Araldo is not yet guaranteed a Melbourne Cup run but is high up enough in the order to give us hope… “he is really well and we are starting to get pretty expected about his prospects” Moroney enthused.

Meanwhile we look forward to a Moonee Valley runner on Friday night – Court Pastoral taking her place in the second race, the LF Sign Group Handicap over 2040m.

The imported mare has had just three runs on Australian soil and she strips fitter for her most recent outing when resuming over a mile at Moonee Valley on October 3.

On that occasion doing her best work late after finding early trouble, Court Pastoral has drawn nicely in barrier three for Dwayne Dunn and Moroney is expecting a forward showing.

“She has finally drawn a gate and she can be ridden with a big of cover. She is suited up in distance and we are expecting improvement from her.”

Our Valdivia is the second of our two weekend runners, the lightly raced four-year-old lining up in the TRFM Handicap at Sale on Sunday.

Stripping fitter for two even runs over 1400m this time in, the son of Don Eduardo is suited up to 1717m and has drawn well in barrier one for Jake Noonan.

“He over-relaxed a bit last time but the step up in distance will suit him and he should prove competitive,” Moroney said.
