Return to Caulfield to Suit Dissident in 2015 CF Orr Stakes

Dissident may not have won the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on January 24 but the run will help him as he prepares for the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield this Saturday.

Dissident will enjoy a return to Caulfield running over 1400 metres in the CF Orr Stakes on Saturday.

The four-year-old horses is one of 19 horses nominated for the first Group One race of the year, along with the likes of Happy Trails, Foreteller, and He’s Your Man.

The three-time Group One winner was the odds-on favourite to dominate the Australia Stakes, with a starting price of $1.85 at, but he ultimately finished third to Mourinho ($31) and It Is Written ($9.50).

Dissident was a little wide early so was forced to ease for the trail. He came out three wide again from the 700 metre mark and pushed even wider on the turn, just plugging home for third a head in front of Smokin’ Joey.

Ben Melham rode Dissident in the race and believes the tricky Moonee Valley circuit got the better of him on his first time round. However a return to Caulfield for the 2015 CF Orr Stakes should fare better for the horse, considering he won the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) first-up in the spring over the same trip and track.

Trainer Peter Moody agrees with the hoop.

“I think he’ll be much better off back around here (at Caulfield) than what he was at Moonee Valley,” Moody said.

“He didn’t get around there too well but I’m happy with how he’s gone since that run.”

Dissident will also have the advantage of being race fit since the CF Orr Stakes will be his second-up run, while many of his rivals will be resuming in the race, which could leave them a little fresh.

These include Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) winner Happy Trails and runner-up He’s Your Man, who haven’t run since November.

The four-year-old will get his chance at revenge against Mourinho in the CF Orr, considering the Peter Gelagotis-trained gelding is being kept at sprint-mile distance races after his upset win in the Australia Stakes.

The final field and barrier trial for the CF Orr Stakes will be released on Wednesday morning with betting markets at to follow shortly afterwards.
