Nolen Pleased With Moment Of Change Ahead of Memsie Stakes

A standout performer through the 2014 Autumn Carnival, jockey Luke Nolen has revealed he is confident of success for classy sprinter Moment Of Change in this weekend’s featured Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m).

Finishing a credible second to Hard Stride in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 16th, Moment Of Change was unlucky not to break through for a victory at the highest level of Australian racing through the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival; finishing just off the pace of Buffering in both the Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) and Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) most notably.

Allocated the slightly wide barrier 8, Nolen told AAP he has been pleased with the feel offered up by the Barely A Moment gelding through recent work, and is confident his proven experience over 1400m will count for a lot in the Memsie Stakes.

“He’s ticking over nicely,” Nolen said.

“His work (on Tuesday) was solid. He’s going in there a happy horse.

“He might not look the best horse in the yard, his coat isn’t there yet but physically I can’t fault him.”

An exciting racing prospect from his maiden preparation, which delivered two race wins from as many starts through the spring of 2011, Moment Of Change finished third in both the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) in the autumn of 2012; returning in spring to win the Listed Show County Quality (1200m) and building towards and impressive victory in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) on September 30th.

Continuing to build in class and form through 2013, Moment Of Change was unlucky to be pipped on the line by Richie’s Vibe in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) on January 24th this year, but responded in the best way possible when winning the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) back-to-back.

Likely to target the open sprints through the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival, Moment Of Change is currently available at generous odds of $6 for success in the Memsie Stakes, or $2.15 to run a place with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
