Pulse Racing as Oaks Winner Resumes in Cockram Stakes 2011

The return of Blue Diamond Stakes – Golden Slipper winner Sepoy may steal centre stage at Caulfield on Saturday, but another Group One champion resuming ahead of the spring is Crown Oaks winner Brazilian Pulse in the 2011 Cockram Stakes.

Brazilian Pulse resumes in the Cockram Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday

The Michael Moroney-trained Brazilian Pulse emerged as one of last year’s spring stars, the now four-year-old daughter of Captain Rio winning the VRC Crown Oaks at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

She raced consistently next preparation during the autumn, but failed to reach the same Group 1 winning heights.

After finishing second to Do Ra Mi in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) at Flemington in March, Brazilian Pulse headed to Sydney and won the Group 3 Keith F Nolan Classic (1800m) before running third behind Mirjjulisa Lass in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day.

Her autumn prep finished on a poor note, however, when Brazilian Pulse failed to come within 13 and a half lengths of Absolutely in the Group 1 AJC Oaks (2400m) at Randwick on April 16, her chances marred by a bog track.

Having enjoyed a nice spell, Brazilian Pulse is now ready for her race return in the $125,000 Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) on Saturday.

“When she kicked off in the autumn over 1400 metres (in the Kewney Stakes) Craig (Williams) said that he felt she was a bit fresh and could have run over 1200 metres, so we thought we’d start her off at 1200 this time,” Moroney said.

She faces a tough test with a final field of 15 promising mares engaged in the feature including Caulfield Cup-bound Pinker Pinker, the Peter Snowden-trained Parables and Peter Moody’s duo of the in-form Mid Summer Music and resuming Do Ra Mi.

Set to jump from barrier 12 of 15 with Craig Williams engaged for the ride, Brazilian Pulse carries equal top-weight of 58.5kg and is rated a $17 chance at Luxbet to win.

Despite her awkward draw and hefty weight, Moroney is confident they have unlocked the key to success with Brazilian Pulse, who he believes has what it takes to go all the way to the 2011 Cox Plate.

“On paper it (the Cockram) may be a bit short for her in this class, and with the set weights and penalties she’s got a little bit of weight, but she’s only been out of the money once in her life and that was on an extremely heavy track in the AJC Oaks,” he said.

Following the Cockram Stakes, Moroney plans to give Brazilian Pulse possibility up to four weeks off before her next assignment which will be either the $300,000 Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 10 or the $200,000 Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) at the same meeting but for mares-only.

From there he said they would go to the $500,000 Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on October 2, but that the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 22 was the ultimate aim.

“We’re very keen on heading towards the Cox Plate with her as the main aim,” He said.

“We’ll get through the Turnbull and then make a decision after that, but that’s where we’re pretty keen to head.”

Futures Cox Plate odds at Luxbet have Brazilian Pulse as a $35 outsider.
