Super Cool Just That for Memsie Stakes 2014 Return

Despite not having had a run since a top 10 run in last year’s Melbourne Cup, the Mark Kavanagh-trained Super Cool is looking spot on for his return to racing this weekend in the 2014 Memsie Stakes.

The opening elite level of the 2014/15 racing season, this Saturday’s $400,000 Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) attracted 16 nominations including eight individual Group 1 winners.

It will be a star-studded field then first-up for Kavanagh’s Fastnet Rock gelding Super Cool, the five-year-old racing for the first time in nine months.

A $150,000 bargain buy as a yearling from the Magic Millions Sales back in 2011 he has won four of his 15 starts to date most famously the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) in March last year.

Last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival he had six starts including a first-up third behind Atlantic Jewel in the Memsie Stakes.

That’s an effort Kavanagh is hoping he can repeat, or even improve on, this weekend when Super Cool races in the weight-for-age feature for the second time.

A fifth to history making Shamus Award in the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) last October the galloper was last seen running ninth when beaten eight lengths by Gai Waterhouse’s maiden Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente in the ‘race that stops a nation’ on November 5.

Kavanagh though remains confident it hasn’t been too long between runs for Super Cool who was always going to be rested throughout the autumn with a focus on the spring riches.

“It was our plan all along to give him the autumn off and get back and concentrate on this spring,” Kavanagh told AAP this week.

“I think he’s a much better horse going into this spring than he was last year.”

The horse is again on the Cox Plate path with the October 25 feature on the agenda along with the $1 million Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, November 1.

Futures Cox Plate odds at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by Roger James’s star Kiwi mare Silent Achiever ($11) who is another notable Memsie Stakes contender.

Kavanagh’s runner meanwhile is a little further down the Cox Plate betting markets at $21, an equal price with current 2014 Caulfield Cup favourite Rising Romance.

Other 2014 Cox Plate aspirants in the Memsie Stakes mix meanwhile include last year’s runner-up Happy Trails, Chris Waller’s triple Group 1 winner Boban and the Team Hawkes-trained Messene after a firm track.

Stay tuned to Races.com.au for the official Memsie Stakes 2014 field set for release shortly.
