Moonee Valley Vase 2013 Field – Complacent Out

A field of three-year-old Victoria Derby hopes is due to run up against each other in the 2013 Moonee Valley Vase on Cox Plate Day this Saturday, the field for the Moonee Valley feature to be missing top nominee Complacent.

Peter Snowden’s flying colt has own their past three on the trot most recently enjoying a Group 1 triumph in the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on October 12.

Originally they were nominated to run this weekend in the $220,000 Group 2 Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m), a traditional lead-up to the $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington on Saturday week, November 2.

Snowden and connections at Darley however decided today to bypass the Vase, which now has a final field of just eight hopefuls, and go straight to the Derby with Complacent who is the $5 favourite in the futures markets for the Group 1.

“In my mind, he’s had the prep to go straight to a Derby,” Snowden told The Australian.

“I don’t really think he needs a lot of racing. He’s not a gross horse.”

Sure-to-be Mitchelton Wines Vase favourite in the number one saddlecloth is now John O’Shea’s Savvy Nature who will jump from the outside barrier with James McDonald aboard.

The Savabeel gelding is the $7.50 second pick for the Derby following their nice third in the Spring Champion on October 12, an effort they will be looking to improve on without the presence of Complacent on Saturday.

The next best Moonee Valley Vase acceptor in the Victoria Derby betting markets is then the Anthony Cummings-trained Drago ($13).

Drawn in barrier three with Blake Shinn to ride, the Danehill Dancer colt was a good third to Complacent in the Gloaming Stakes two back at Rosehill before their disappointing seventh in the Spring Champion.

There are then two last start winners looking for consecutive wins on Saturday, the most notable of which is the David Hayes-trained Tips And Beers.

Due to run from the inside alley with Chad Schofield riding the De Beers three-year-old is shooting for their fourth straight after winning over the Caulfield mile on October 16.

Peter Moody then saddles up the other last start winner in Storm Approach (barrier two) who ran a lovely race to finish first in the Listed Hill Smith Stakes (1800m) at Morphettville on October 12.

Other notable hopes then include in-form Bendigo galloper Mantener La Fe and the John Sadler-trained Pinstripe Lane coming off a fourth to Polanski in the Super Impose Stakes (1800m) at Flemington.
