Mouro On Target for Villiers Stakes 2014

Five-year-old entire Mouro has had just one start this campaign but Sydney punters can expect to see a lot more of him over the coming weeks.

After a light spring campaign, Mouro will have two starts in Sydney over the coming weeks.

The American bred horse got his start in France before being sold to clients of trainer Tony McEvoy in 2012. The entire enjoyed back-to-back wins in last year’s spring racing carnival after scoring the Sale Cup (1600m) and Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m). He then returned in the autumn of this year to win the Group 3 TAB Rewards Stakes (1400m).

After that he finished end of the field his next three times out, including in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 12. He found a good position in the race right behind the leaders after jumping well but got shuffled back around the bend. He didn’t look like he enjoyed the track and dropped out, finishing 17 lengths behind winner Sacred Falls.

He got his first and only start this spring in the Kingswood Handicap (1350m) on November 15, in which he charged home for second despite carrying a hefty 60kg.

“He finished that hard, 30 metres past the past he was two lengths in front,” Tony McEvoy told Racing Network on Tuesday.

“The kid (Lester Grace) got off and he couldn’t believe how fast he finished.

“He said he was just flying.”

Mouro will next be seen in the Listed Festival Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on November 29 before the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) a fortnight later at Royal Randwick on December 13.

McEvoy still believes Mouro has what it takes to compete at Group One level despite his mishap in the 2014 Doncaster Mile, and has not given up on running the horse at the highest level during the autumn.

“I’ve always thought this horse has Group 1 ability,” McEvoy said.

“I’ve run him in two – the Toorak and he jarred up, and the Doncaster and it was a bog.

“I need a track somewhere in the middle.”
