May’s 2014 Myer Classic Dream for Weir

Wangoom-based horseman Darren Weir is gearing up for a supercharged spring targeting a number of Melbourne majors including the Myer Classic 2014 with his Oaks winner May’s Dream.

New Approach filly May’s Dream boasts four wins from 11 starts so far, the most recent and best effort to date being her narrow victory over Star Fashion in the Group 1 Schweppes Australasian Oaks (2000m) at Morphettville in April.

Weir has nominated the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, November 1, as the likely spring feature for the rising four-year-old this coming prep.

She featured in last year’s Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival catching the eye with back-to-back seconds firstly behind Guelph in the Thousand Guineas and then Kirramosa in the Wakeful Stakes over 1600m and 2000m respectively.

May’s Dream backed up in the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) during the Cup Carnival but over-raced and didn’t see out the distance, despite being a daughter of Weir’s 2003 Melbourne Cup runner-up She’s Archie, finishing nine lengths away eighth.

She will then be kept to the shorter middle distance gallops this time in with the Myer Classic looking an ideal option.

There are plenty of Group 1 stars in work getting fit ahead of their new season campaigns including fellow mare Platelet.

Winner of the Robert Stangster Stakes – The Goodwood double in Adelaide last year, the Strategic five-year-old ran second in both races this autumn gone.

She’s in line for a big sprint season then including the $1 million Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) on Emirates Stakes Day, November 8, a race she was a late scratching in last year.

Among Weir’s staying ranks are then top duo Signoff and Puissance De Lune, both stabled at his Western District stable in early training that includes regular visits to Warrnambool beach.

While Weir is still working out the exact return dates of the pair, it is likely his lightly raced Authorized gelding Signoff will target the $250,000 Listed Bendigo Cup (2400m) on October 29.

They’ve won six of their seven starts to date in an excellent start to their career including their past four straight including back-to-back five length wins over 2400m (Bendigo) and 2500m (Moonee Valley) in March.

The Bendigo Cup is the same race that launched Shamardal stallion Puissance De Lune into the spotlight back in 2012 when they won the mile and a half feature by a massive eight lengths.

“Signoff’s good, he’s ticking along good. Him and Puissance De Lune are going to the sand dunes now,” Weir said.

“Signoff he’s Bendigo Cup bound but we’ll just see what happens with him.

“They’re getting right into the swing of things.”

Puissance De Lune had a mixed spring last year finishing off with a 12th to Shamus Award in the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2050m), but is set for a shot at the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) on the first Tuesday of November this year.

In pre-nomination Melbourne Cup betting at they are listed as a $34 chance, the futures markets led by Sydney Cup winner The Offer ($13) who strutted their stuff in a pleasing track gallop between races at Rosehill over the weekend.
