Mosheen Ready to Fire Again in 2012 Tristarc Stakes

Pre-spring Cox Plate fancy Mosheen may have had her goals downgraded but she is still set to to make an impact as her campaign continues on Saturday in the Group 2 2012 Tristarc Stakes (1400m).


Mosheen is the horse to beat in the Tristarc Stakes

It is the glamour mare’s fourth start since undergoing a throat operation, with two below par performances turned around earlier this month when she returned to the winner’s circle in the Blazer Stakes.

Mosheen’s new spring goal is the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) and on class alone she looks well placed to get there with another win under her belt this weekend.

A winner of eight of 17 starts, Mosheen has won four times at Group 1 level and collected over $2.7 million in prizemoney.

She starred in the autumn when producing a Group 1 treble in the Australian Guineas, Randwick Guineas and Vinery Stud Stakes.

Trainer Robert Smerdon is confident she has taken improvement out of the Blazer Stakes as she returns to the track where she enjoyed success as a three-year-old.

“We did think she had improvement, but she hit the line good and pulled up good and we’ve just kept her ticking over to stay at 1400 with the mile (of the Myer) being two weeks beyond that,” Smerdon said.

“We know from that when she finds form she can hold it.”

Mosheen’s first outing at Caulfield came when she finished third in the Thousand Guineas Prelude last year before she went on to finish second to Atlantic Jewel in the Thousand Guineas and win the Listed Manfred Stakes in February.

The biggest danger to the daughter of Fastnet Rock appears to be Red Tracer who arrives from Sydney on the back of a strong first-up win.

The Chris Waller-trained mare was held just off the pace in the Premiere Stakes before exploding around the bend and sprinting clear to claim a one-length victory.
