Atomic Force Primed for 2012 Carlyon Stakes

Group 1 winning sprinter Atomic Force will kick off his spring campaign this weekend in the Listed 2012 Carlyon Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Atomic Force Will Run in the Carlyon Stakes at Moonee Valley on Saturday

The Darren Smith-trained gelding was last seen in a successful New Zealand campaign in January where he won the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1200m) and finished runner-up in the Telegraph Handicap (1200m).

A son of Danehill Dancer, Atomic Force had a strong hitout on the Moonee Valley track this morning leaving Smith with no doubts that he is ready to return to racing.

“He worked over half-a-mile (600m) and worked strong to the line, so all’s good. He’s definitely going to run,” Smith told Racing Victoria.

“This is just a nice race to start him off in, over 1000 metres.”

Smith said the seven-year-old was not yet at 100 percent but is still expecting a solid performance from the talented sprinter.

While the major spring goals have not been laid out for Atomic Force, possible options include the Group 1 2012 Patinack Farm Classic and the 2012 Manikato Stakes.

Atomic Force has been allocated the top weight of 60kg for Saturday’s test and will line up against a number of quality opponents.

Included in the 23-horse nominations list is Michael Moroney-trained four-year-old African Pulse who returned with an impressive victory earlier this month.

After a tough autumn where he finished midfield in some of the nation’s biggest sprints, African Pulse resumed with a 2 1/2 length win down the Flemington straight on August 11.

Also nominated is former star two-year-old One Last Dance and 2010 Krisflyer International Sprint winner Green Birdie.

The spring is near and now have markets open for a number of the country’s biggest races.
