Conservatorium Ready for 2013 Moir Stakes Challenge

They are set to face a star-studded field of Group 1 winners and performers in Friday night’s Moir Stakes 2013 at Moonee Valley but Adelaide raider Conservatorium is ready for the challenge according to their Morphettville-based co-trainer Lloyd Kennewell.

There were 12 early nominations taken for this year’s $450,000 Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) which runs as an elite level race for the first time on the weekend since being upgraded earlier in the year.

Among the top-rated hopes are the defending champ Buffering, their last-start conqueror in Stradbroke Handicap winner Linton, last year’s Blue Diamond winner Samaready and the Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzerland.

One of the other notable hopes in the mix is then Royal Academy six-year-old Conservatorium, co-trained by father and son training duo Gary and Lloyd Kennewell, who also has Group 1 experience and plenty of class.

Resuming racing here the gelding was last seen running second to Fire Up Fifi when carrying a hefty 60.5kg in the Listed Mercedes-Benz Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm back in June.

Prior to that they posted their seventh career win when winning the Listed Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) by an easy two lengths.

They were also Group 1 placed that prep at home when second to Platelet in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville in May.

Now they return and look to bring that good form to Melbourne where they race for the first time since November of 2011, and Kennewell is confident they are ready to fire first-up.

“He’s in a super place,” Kennewell told The Advertiser this week.

The horse’s ultimate goal this prep is then the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in WA on November 23, a track they ran fifth to Barakey at in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) last Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

“It’s a matter of getting there grounding into him, he proved in Queensland he could get that bit further so that’s his goal,” his trainer added.

The 2013 Moir Stakes final field and barrier draw will be out on Wednesday and published right here at
