Consistent Zamorar After More in 2013 Monash Stakes

After a close third in the race last winter the David Bourne-trained Zamorar will be out to improve by two and take home the bikkies in the Sir John Monash Stakes 2013 at Caulfield Racecourse this weekend.

Twelve months ago the Scandal Keeper gelding was a close third to Platelet in the $100,000 Listed Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m), run last year on a Heavy (9) course.

It continued on from their earlier nice form which included a win over the same track and distance two back and their second to Riziz in the Listed AR Creswick Stakes (1200m).

Zamorar would also go onto run top three in their next three Melbourne runs, all at Group level, including a brave second to Second Effort in the Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) in the mud after which they spent eight months on the sidelines.

They came back after that for a one run assault in Adelaide but failed when 13th to Kulgrinda in the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) this April.

Ten weeks later the now four-year-old showed excellent improvement at Flemington when just nudged out of an All Victorian Handicap heat win when a nose away second to fellow Monash Stakes hopeful Pago Rock.

Now they are back at Caulfield ready for another shot at the Monash, Zamorar drawn in gate 10 of 10 for the sprint showdown.

They will be ridden on Saturday by Jamie Mott who was in the saddle last start and are one of five horses under $10 in the latest Sir John Monash Stakes betting markets.

Current top fancy is Group 2 winning colt Happy Galaxy ($3.20) running first-up since their Expressway Stakes success, with Oakleigh Plate winning mare Mrs Onassis ($3.40) close second favourite.

Zamorar meanwhile pays $9 to score an upset Monash Stakes result.

“There are a lot of formlines around him with people looking at him for a benchmark so we are taking heart from that,” their Seymour-based trainer Bourne said.

If successful it would be the horse’s first victory since May last year which coincidently was over the 1100m at Caulfield like Saturday’s race.

“He’s a good, honest consistent horse and we don’t know what day he will win again, but he will get his turn,” Bourne said.

“Because he is only just starting to come through, what comes after that we don’t know.”
