Mosheen Impresses Ahead of 2012 Cox Plate

Autumn star Mosheen took her first steps towards the 2012 Cox Plate yesterday, impressing in a barrier trial at Cranbourne.

Trainer Robert Smerdon confirmed the daughter of Fastnet Rock will be targeted at the Australasian weight-for-age championship, with her preparation to built around the $3 million event.

“We think she’s a Cox Plate horse and that’s the race her preparation is aimed at,” Smerdon said.

With regular jockey Danny Nikolic on board, Mosheen cruised comfortably through the 800-metre hit-out, leaving Smerdon confident ahead of the spring preparation.

“She was always in her comfort zone but still had a good gallop,” Smerdon said.

“She showed us today that she’s on track.”

Smerdon is yet to finalise a return race for Mosheen who was one of the talking points of the Autumn Carnival.

After first-up win in the Listed Manfred Stakes, the rising four-year-old was a close runner-up in the Group 3 Vanity before taking out a remarkable Group 1 treble.

The Caulfield-based horse won the Australian Guineas by three lengths at Flemington before heading to Sydney to take out the Randwick Guineas and the Vinery Stud Stakes.

Mosheen currently sits on the fourth line of betting in the early Cox Plate market, with offering the rising star at $13.00.

Atlantic Jewel currently heads the market at $4.00 and has reportedly returned a stronger horse after a break following her autumn campaign.

Fellow unbeaten horse Pierro currently sits at second in the market ($9.00) after leading trainer Gai Waterhouse confirmed the Cox Plate and the Caulfield Guineas would be his major spring targets.

Also at the top of the of the Cox Plate market is glamour mare More Joyous who is being offered at $11.00.
