Puissance De Lune to Spell Before 2013 Melbourne Spring Carnival

2013 Melbourne Cup favourite Puissance De Lune will follow in the footsteps of last year’s winner Green Moon by contesting only the Blamey Stakes in the autumn before a big 2013 Spring Racing Carnival tilt.

Puissance De Lune emulated Green Moon when winning the Blamey Stakes, albeit in a dead heat, at Flemington on Saturday.

Connections and trainer Darren Weir will aim to get the five-year-old into the Melbourne Cup with as few starts as possible, hoping to receive a weight of around 54kg.

The entire will do beach work at Weir’s Warrnambool stable for the next few weeks before having a six to eight week spell to freshen up for his spring preparation.

Saturday’s Blamey Stakes victory was his third consecutive after rounding out his spring campaign with dominant performances in the Bendigo Cup and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Star jockey Glen Boss was the first to sing Puissance De Lune’s praises during the spring and he had an identical attitude following the weekend’s victory.

“He’s come back looking identically to when he left,” Boss said.

“That’s the least of his distance he’ll be competitive at, you wait till he gets up over a trip.”

The son of Shamardal was held up for much of the straight but when in the clear he quickly mowed down his rivals and split the win with front-runner Budriguez.

“He whipped home and he made up three lengths very very quickly, he comes that quick,” Boss said.

Puissance De Lune is a $10 favourite in the early bookmaker.com.au market ahead of Lloyd Williams’ latest import Sea Moon ($12) and 2012 runner-up Fiorente ($17).
