Mosheen to Keep up Appearances – Vinery Stud Stakes 2012

Confidence is high in camp Mosheen ahead of the brilliant filly’s bid at a fourth Group 1 title in the 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday, the race attracting a final late entry in the Sheikh Mohammed-owned Appearance today.


Mosheen is on track for a shot at Group 1 win number for in the 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes this Saturday

Originally just seven three-year-old fillies were nominated for this year’s edition of the $400,000 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m), but an impressive piece of trackwork has convinced trainer Guy Walter to enter his improving daughter of Commands Appearance.

“She worked on the course proper at Warwick Farm this morning so we are going to put her in the Vinery,” Walter said on Tuesday.

“As long as she continues to do well during the week she will run and Kerrin McEvoy will ride her.”

Lightly-raced with just six starts to her name Appearance was last seen holding on in a tight finish to beat home Anthony Cummings’ Canberra Guineas winner She Goes To Rio in the Group 3 Keith F Nolan Classic (1600m) at Kembla Grange on March 25.

She Goes To Rio is also set to back up in the Vinery Stud Stakes, previously known as the Storm Queen Stakes, on Saturday.

Walter also prepares the other big player in the Vinery Stud Stakes this year with his 2011 Flight Stakes winning Stratum three-year-old Streama.

Coming off a fifth behind Ofcourseican in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill Streama steps up to the 2000-metres for the first time on Saturday.

While it is a big up in distance, Walter is confident her work alongside Matthew Smith’s Myer Classic winner Hurtle Myrtle at Warwick Farm on Tuesday was a step in the right direction.

Mosheen, meanwhile, looked in flying form on the steeple grass at Caulfield this morning with race jockey Dan Nikolic aboard working over 1200-metres in 1:18.6.

“Dan said he was really happy, and if he’s happy, we’re all happy,” Smerdon said.

“She will travel to Sydney on Thursday night and there is no reason to think she won’t win again.”

Stay tuned to to view the official 2012 Vinery Stud Stakes final field and barrier draw once released on Wednesday.
