African Pulse

African Pulse has been scratched from the Heath 1100 at Caulfield

The four-year-old was one of the top two elects for the race otherwise known as Theshark.com.au Stakes but was withdrawn after cutting his leg yesterday morning.

The wound required six stitches and spring plans will be reassessed for the son of Johannesburg over the next few days.

Trained by Mike Moroney, the young entire kicked off his spring campaign in promising fashion on August 11 when winning the Colwell and Singh Handicap by 2 1/2 lengths at Flemington.

African Pulse’s scratching has seen Golden Archer installed as a clear $2.90 favourite at bookmaker.com.au for the $120,000 sprint on Saturday.

The Peter Moody-trained galloper returned from injury with a win last month and also finished second to Shanghai Warrior in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap.

Next best in the market is Freereturn ($5.00) who is chasing a third consecutive victory and his second at stakes level.

The six-year-old won the Harvey Sprint on August 4 before stepping up to claim the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) on a heavy track at Caulfield two weeks ago.

Just behind Freereturn is exciting mare Platelet ($5.50) who returns from a brief break to attempt a fourth straight win.

The consistent Darren Weir-trained four-year-old has won five times from 12 starts and placed on six occasions.

In a tight betting market behind the favourite, three under horses fall under double figures.

Running first-up in the spring is Clarry Connors-trained Dee ‘N’ Gee who is joined at $7.50 by Cockram Stakes third placegetter Glows.

At $8.00 is six-year-old mare Rue Maple who finished fourth to Glows last start.
