Strong Trial from More Joyous Ahead of 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

Pin-up mare More Joyous showed positive signs she is on track to repeat last year’s stellar autumn form with a strong trial win at Randwick ahead of the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

More Joyous

More Joyous produced a comfortable trial win at Randwick on Friday.

With Tommy Berry aboard in the absence of the injured Nash Rawiller, More Joyous cruised comfortably to win the 1050-metre hit-out ahead of Ashokan and stablemate Proisir.

It was an easy win for the six-year-old who was held just outside the lead before picking up the leader comfortably in the closing stages.

While she only crossed the line in front by half a head, it was the manner of her performance which excited Berry.

“She sat outside the leader and travelled very comfortably and moved past him very strong at the top of the straight,” Berry told Sky Sports Radio.

“It was an absolute pleasure to ride her today. I’ve ridden Group 1 winners but she just gives you a different feel, she gives you goosebumps.

“The best thing about it was she pulled up very well after the win.”

It was the first public outing for the Gai Waterhouse-trained mare since she produced her worst performance of recent times to run 11th in the Cox Plate.

It is believed the daughter of More Than Ready will be set on a similar campaign to the one that saw her star last autumn.

She was unbeaten in four starts beginning with the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes before producing a Group 1 treble in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes, Doncaster Mile and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

More Joyous is currently a $13 chance in the 2013 Doncaster Mile pre-post market behind three-year-olds Pierro ($7.50), All Too Hard ($9) and Proisir ($10).
