It’s A Dundeel Tops Moonee Valley Vase Odds 2012

Unsurprisingly Murray Baker’s undefeated New Zealand galloper It’s A Dundeel has opened as the odds-on favourite for this Saturday’s 2012 Moonee Valley Vase, the Victoria Derby-bound youngster set to jump at the shortest odds on the Cox Plate Day card.

It's A Dundeel

It's a Dundeel has opened odds-on favourite for the 2012 Moonee Valley Vase on Cox Plate Day

Last seen putting their neck down on the line to defeat hot favourite Proisir, who runs as a single-figure chance in Saturday’s 2012 Cox Plate, in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick, the High Chaparral colt will shoot for their sixth consecutive career win in the $220,000 Group 2 Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m).

Despite it being their first run in Melbourne they are the rank horse in the small seven horse field and are paying $1.20 in the MV Vase odds at bookmaker.com.au to win.

While Baker, who won the 2010 Victoria Derby with the ill-fated Lion Tamer who also came via the Vase having run second to Rekindled Interest before their 6.5 length romp in the Group 1, agonised over whether to back It’s A Dundeel up on Saturday, he’s ultimately happy with the decision to run them.

“There were a few factors, but better to be on the safe side than the sorry side,” Baker said speaking about giving the horse a final tune-up for the $1.5 million Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington on November 3.

“I was a bit worried about the month between runs, but mainly it was that he’s never raced left-handed and I was keen to get a left-handed run into him before the Derby.

“I guess he is expected to win, but that’s when you end up with egg on your face.”

The only other three-year-old under $10 in the Moonee Valley Vase betting markets is then Mark Kavanagh’s progressive Fastnet Rock gelding Super Cool paying $6.50 who was last seen running a close second over the Caulfield mile on Thousand Guineas Day.

Other longer priced hopefuls out to score a boil over result in the fifth on Saturday then include Adelaide raider Viking Star ($12) coming off a devastatingly close second in the Listed Hill Smith Stakes at Morphettville over 1800m, Kavanagh’s other runner If I Could ($19) and Hill Smith third placegetter Nisos ($21).

The David Hayes-trained Prisoner Of War ($61), fourth in the Hill Smith last time out, and Marwina colt Bullion Express ($101) drawn in gates one and two respectively then round out the Moonee Valley Vase field and markets.
