Mr Moet “Rock-Hard Fit” for 2014 Railway Stakes

Local horseman Adam Durrant will saddle up three chances in Saturday’s Railway Stakes 2014 field and is unconcerned about any fitness issues with his 2012 champ Mr Moet resuming off a lengthy spell.

The Mosayter seven-year-old is one of a capacity field running in this year’s $1 million Group 1 Carlton Draught Railway Stakes (1600m), the mile showdown running as Ascot Race 8 in Perth on the weekend.

Mr Moet won the race two years ago first-up off a four and a half month spell when defeating 2011 and 2013 champion Luckygray in WA’s richest race.

He hasn’t raced however since running sixth in a failed title defense behind Ihtsahymn, also a rival in the Railway Stakes this year, in the Group 2 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m) at Ascot in December last year.

For his previous Railway Stakes victory Mr Moet carried only 53.5kg to victory but this year will have 55.5kg on his back with the race’s most successful jockey Paul Harvey jumping aboard.

Harvey has ridden three Railway Stakes winners from 17 rides in the race since 1983, his most recent success a decade ago.

While it has been a long time between runs for Mr Moet the veteran runs well fresh proven by his first-up record of three wins and a second from six attempts.

He’s also had two good lead-up trials at home at Lark Hill, the latest of which saw him run a narrow second behind Western Blaze over 1450m.

Durrant isn’t worried at all about the horse’s fitness and rates him a strong chance.

“His fitness is no problem at all,” Durrant told TAB Radio.

“With The Cleaner and a few others the pace should be genuine. He is rock-hard fit.

“Our system works very well without having to go to the races.

“I think the timing is perfect for him and he just needs luck at the right time to run into the first three.”

The bookies are also taking no chances with Mr Moet paying $13 in the latest Railway Stakes betting markets, in from $15, at Ladbrokes.com.au that are led by exciting pacesetter The Cleaner at an easing $4.80.

Durrant is also represented in the field by Chester Road ($31) who Peter Hall has wasted to ride on 53kg and Ranger ($34) who will be ridden by Dom Tourneur also on the minimum weight.
