Weighty Task for Mr Moet in 2013 Perth Cup

Perth Summer Racing Carnival star Mr Moet will have to set a weight-carrying record if he is to record another win this campaign in the Group 2 2013 Perth Cup (2400m) on Tuesday.

The Adam Durrant-trained gelding has been allocated topweight of 59kg for the staying test and the biggest impost carried since the introduction of the metric system in 1972 wasin 1989 when Saratov carried 55kg to victory.

Mr Moet has been one of the stars of the west of late, beating Luckygray to win the Group 1 Railway Stakes first-up before Luckygray turned the tables and he had to settle with second in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic.

But the son of Mosayter returned to the winner’s stall on Saturday, running down stablemate Chester Road to claim the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m).

Durrant is aiming to take Mr Moet to tackle the big guns in the east in 2013 and is confident he will line up in the Perth Cup which will be used as a “measuring stick” as to what could be suitable targets.

“The Perth Cup will be a good measuring stick to where we are going in Melbourne for him,” Durrant told the West Australian.

“At this stage he has pulled up fantastic and we will just keep monitoring him.”

A likely autumn target is the 2013 Australian Cup (2000m) which will take place on March 9 at Flemington.

Mr Moet faces a rematch with Chester Road who will have a five kilogram weight advantage when he carries just 54kg in the Western Australia feature race.

Others likely to contest the Perth Cup include Sydney stayer Cantonese, Neville Parnham-trained pair Playing God and God Has Spoken and veteran gelding Lords Ransom.

The Perth Cup market will be available once the final field has been announced and bookmaker.com.au will have sensational odds.
