African Pulse to Return at Flemington

Michael Moroney-trained four-year-old African Pulse has again been nominated to make his return after being scratched in the lead-up to a scheduled start last month.

African Pulse

African Pulse has been nominated to run at Flemington on Saturday

The lightly-raced horse has been nominated for Saturday’s $80,000 John Colwell and Balwant Singh Handicap (1000m) which will be used as a stepping stone to early spring stakes races.

Whether or not African Pulse contests the major spring sprints is still to be decided but trainer Michael Moroney indicated during the autumn he had a high opinion of the son of Johannesburg.

After winning the first four starts of his career, Moroney elected to enter the sprinter in both the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate and the Newmarket Handicap.

Despite finishing well outside the placings, the Melbourne-based four-year-old tried gallantly and was only 2 1/2 lengths off the winner in the Oakleigh Plate and 3 1/2 in the Newmarket.

African Pulse bounced back with solid efforts at the back end of the Autumn Carnival, finishing fourth in the Listed Darby Munro Stakes and fifth in the Gosford Guineas.

Speaking in the lead-up to his previously scheduled return race, Moroney said he had hopes natural improvement would allow the promising sprinter to develop into a genuine Group 1 competitor this spring.

Nominated in the same race as African Pulse is Cranbourne-based gelding Morant who began first-up with a promising fourth-place finish to Golden Archer in the Monjon Australia Handicap.

Set to make a return for the first time since December last year is Pat Carey-trained five-year-old Ulundi who won the Listed Lord Stakes at Mornington late last year.
