Desert Jeuney Primed for Emirates Stakes Success

Finding particularly competitive form since returning to racing this time in, trainer Nigel Blackiston has been thrilled with the results secured by classy five-year-old Desert Jeuney and is confident he will lay a great account for himself in Saturday’s featured Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington.

Claiming a competitive total of four race wins and a further five minor places from his 18 competitive starts so far, Desert Jeuney has found undoubtable career-best form leading into the 2014 Emirates Stakes; finishing third in a minor over 1500m before again finishing a particularly impressive third in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) on October 11th.

Running third behind fellow Emirates Stakes acceptors Hooked and Bull Point in the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) last time out on October 25th, was pleased with the allocation of just 53.5kgs, and is confident the Desert King gelding is in the right form to overcome the outside barrier.

“It was a huge run in the Toorak, and in the Emirates he would drop a lot of weight from the 59 he carried,” Blackiston told The Age.

“He ran seventh or eighth in the Sydney Cup, we have brought him back and freshened him up and he’s a lot happier.

“He is bred to get over ground but he’s always got a good turn of foot and his fresh runs are always good.”

Running a credible third in the Group 3 Sky High Stakes (1900m) and fourth in the Group 3 NE Manion Cup (2400m) most notably in the lead-up to the Sydney Cup during his autumn preparation, Desert Jeuney placed fifth in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) and sixth in the Listed Sofitel (1400m) in his only other starts prior to his minor race third this time in.

Confirmed to be partnered by regular jockey James Winks, Desert Jeuney is currently available at a quote of $26 for success in Emirates Stakes betting markets or $7 to figure in the places at
