Moriarty to Get “Last Crack” in Railway Stakes 2014

The Chris Waller-trained Moriarty may not be drawn the best for Saturday’s 2014 Railway Stakes in Perth but his track rider Johanne Taylor believes he’ll be able to have a “last crack” at his rivals if race day jockey Nash Rawiller does his job.

Taylor arrived in WA on Tuesday night to ride Waller’s Clodovil seven-year-old for his final piece of work yesterday at Ascot Racecourse ahead of the $1 million Group 1 Carlton Draught Railway Stakes (1600m) this weekend.

Plans were to originally bypass Perth’s richest race and save the imported gelding for a Monday trail before a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic over 1800m on December 6.

Waller, who now chases his incredible eighth Group 1 win for the season in the Railway, however opted to give his veteran galloper a go after Rawiller made himself available for the ride.

It wasn’t Rawiller but Taylor who put the recent Craven Plate winner, set to carry 57kg on Saturday, through his paces on Wednesday, work that impressed her ahead of D-Day.

“I was very pleased with his work,” Taylor told Perth Racing.

“He had a bit of a look around because it was his first look at the track.

“But once he got down to business he worked nicely.

“He went a good three-quarter pace and then the last two furlongs he kind of lengthened out his stride and had a good blow.

“He did good work, but nothing over the top.”

Moriarty was last seen running a below par eighth behind Happy Trails in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Derby Day.

He’s down in distance on Saturday then for his maiden Perth run and has drawn wide in barrier 19 (into 15 of 16).

“The draw is not ideal but he does go back so I don’t think it will be too much to his disadvantage,” Taylor added.

“We will just let him slot in behind and have a last crack at them.”

In the latest Railway Stakes odds at Tasmania’s front-running champ The Cleaner is the $4.80 to win.

Moriarty meanwhile is at $17, out from $15, to improve on his recent Melbourne form and overcome the barrier for an upset Railway Stakes result.

Waller’s enjoyed a stunning start to the 2014-15 season so far preparing seven Group 1 winners with: Preferment (Victoria Derby), Brazen Beau (Coolmore Stud Stakes), Amicus (Thousand Guineas), He’s Your Man (Epsom Handicap), Junoob (The Metropolitan), Sacred Falls (George Main Stakes) and Foreteller (Underwood Stakes).
