2012 Sandown Guineas Test for Moreau

2012 Sandown Guineas Test for Moreau

Mornington trainer Dean Binaisse has his fingers crossed that this Saturday will see his smart Snitzel filly Moreau finally break her maiden status when she steps up in class for the Sandown Guineas 2012 on Zipping Classic Day.

The three-year-old has been super consistent over her seven start career to date racking up a somewhat frustrating succession of five minor placings including two third place finishes at her two most recent runs.

A $30,000 purchase from the 2011 William Inglis & Son Scone Select Yearling Sales, Moreau has already earned connections back their original output earning $35,995 in prize money.

Two back she made her Group race debut and caught the eye running a brave third when beaten just one and a half lengths after jumping from barrier 10 of 12 in the Group 2 Fillies Classic (1600m) under the lights at Moonee Valley.

She backed up on Crown Oaks Day in the Visit Victoria Plate against her own kind over 1700m and ran third again, this time behind Keep De Rose when carrying a hefty 58kg.

Saturday sees her go back up against the boys when she races in the $350,000 Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) where she has drawn wide again this time in gate 10 of 16 and will carry 54.5kg under the set weights conditions.

Vlad Duric has been booked to ride Moreau in the Guineas for the first time as she goes out as the only filly in this year’s race with three of the past 10 Sandown Guineas winners having been female.

“She’s still very untapped. She’s raw and green,” Binaisse said of Moreau who is looking to join recent female winners Cayambe (2005), Dextrous (2002) and Moon Dragon (2001).

“I’m not sure about the history but it would be a nice race for her to break her maiden in.”

The current Sandown Guineas betting markets are led by the Peter Snowden-trained Tatra ($4.40) and Bart Cummings’ widely drawn Lunar Rise ($4.60) who ran second and first respectively in the Group 3 Inglis Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington last time out on Derby Day.

Moreau meanwhile can be found right at the other end of the Sandown Guineas 2012 odds, the filly one of the roughies in the markets paying a juicy $31 to upset the boys and hand Binaisse with his first major win.

“I’ve had my foot on the till but I can’t seem to crack it (with a Group win),” Binaisse, who will be in New Zealand for the Ready To Run Sale this weekend, said.

“Sure enough, it will probably happen on Saturday because I won’t be there.

“But I’d be quite happy to win it from New Zealand.”
