Moses Prays for Inglis Classic 2012 Miracle

Randwick-based trainer Kevin Moses has two youngsters lining up in the 2012 Inglis Classic at Rosehill this Saturday as he vies for a second victory in the lucrative sales-restricted showdown, but he knows that it will take a small miracle for them to overcome their class rivals.

Moses took out the Inglis Classic seven years ago with his Singspiel filly Paulini, the race then run at Warwick Farm, and hopes that his 2012 duo Crusader King and Sinoque will be competitive in the $250,000, 1200-metre feature this weekend.

The stablemates both debuted in the Warwick Farm 100 Club Plate (1000m) on January 7, Falvelon colt Sinoque crossing 10 lengths away seventh, one better than Shaft colt Crusader King who was a further one and a half back in eighth.

That race was won by Gai Waterhouse’s very promising More Than Ready gelding Raceway who is now topping the futures 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes betting at a quote of $4.40 through Luxbet.

Moses has his fingers crossed the stablemates will show improvement in the Inglis Classic, Sinoque drawn in barrier seven with Brenton Avdulla to ride and Crusader King with work to do from gate 12 with Christian Reith engaged.

“They would have learned a lot from the other day,” Moses said.

“They might not be up to it but the prize money is good and they’re fit and well.”

Back in 2005 Paulini was also a maiden before their Inglis Classic victory, but they had had three previous runs and came off a good second over 1000 metres at Warwick Farm.

The Inglis Classic odds reflect the long-shot chance Moses has of success on Saturday with Sinoque paying $41 and Crusader King the $101 roughie of the Luxbet markets.

Odds are led by Waterhouse’s unraced Snippetsboy ($2.90 Luxbet) who should get a gun run from barrier three with Tommy Berry, fresh off a protest win aboard Driefontein in the Magic Millions Classic, booked.

The two other fancies are Gerald Ryan’s debutant Cavalry Rose ($3.40 Luxbet) who won a Rosehill trial by four and a half earlier this month, and last-start Inglis Nursery winner Diamond Earth ($3.50 Luxbet) from Anthony Cummings’ stables.
