African Pulse Not Certain 2012 Carlyon Stakes Starter

African Pulse trainer Michael Moroney will delay his decision on whether or not the talented sprinter will line up in tomorrow’s 2012 Carlyon Stakes (1000m) until race morning.

African Pulse

A decision of whether African Pulse starts in the Carlyon Stakes will be made on race morning

The son of Johannesburg has drawn wide in barrier 15 but wet weather in Melbourne may force a number of scratchings which would allow him to start closer.

“We’ll just see what the weather does,” Moroney said.

“The field could downsize if we get a lot of rain.

“There’s a nice race for him next week as well but he could run in both.”

While the conditions may cause the withdrawal of a number of African Pulse’s rivals, they won’t worry the four-year-old who has won two of three starts on wet tracks.

One of those came earlier this month when he excelled first-up to win the J Colwell & B Singh Handicap by 2 1/2 lengths.

Moroney has been pleased with African Pulse’s improvement this time in work and is expecting him to have a big campaign.

“He’s always shown he’s a good little horse…he’s going to be an interesting horse this spring,” Moroney said.

“He hasn’t put a foot wrong at all, I’m very happy with the way he is going.”

The four-year-old entire showed potential in the autumn when just short of Group 1 standard as he finished mid-field in both the Oakleigh Plate and Newmarket Handicap.

Currently $3.90 favourite for tomorrow’s race, the main danger for African Pulse appears to be Group 1 winner Atomic Force ($4.20).

The seven-year-old gelding won the Group 1 Railway Stakes in New Zealand in January and also finished second in the Group 1 Telegraph Handicap.

Other Carlyon Stakes contenders include last-start runner-up Unanimously ($9.00) and Green Birdie ($9.00).
