Torney Night Cup Run for 2015 Adelaide Cup Hope Renew

Ballarat-based Englishman Archie Alexander is set to use this Friday night’s Torney Night Cup at Moonee Valley as a stepping stone into the Adelaide Cup 2015 at Morphettville next month for his smart import Renew.

Dansili five-year-old Renew was disappointing first-up when beaten 10 lengths running 11th out of 11 runners behind Averau in the Doriemus Handicap (2000m) at Flemington on January 31.

That was the gelding’s first run since a close victory over Like A Carousel in the Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) at the end of his spring preparation.

It is also one Alexander, who first worked with Lloyd Williams when coming to Australia on the back of stints with some of the world’s best trainers in France, America and Dubai, is confident the horse can improve on this weekend.

“It was far too short for him but he has come through that run well,” Alexander told Adelaide Now on Monday.

“We just need to get the miles into his legs.

“The horse is really well and has tucked up nicely since his Flemington run.”

Renew is down to run second-up under the lights on Friday night in the $150,000 Listed Torney Night Cup (2500m), the handicap clash attracted 17 nominations on Monday.

Doreiums Handicap winner Averau is also among the entries, the Peter Morgan & Craig Widdison-trained Stratum mare after her third on the trot having also won the Bagot Handicap (2800m) at Flemington on New Year’s Day.

She goes up from 54kg for her two recent wins last month to 55.5kg on Friday with the Torney Night Cup weights led by the Darren Weir-trained Haradasun gelding Taiyoo (60kg) coming off a with carrying 58.5kg to victory over the mile and a half at Sandown on February 7.

Renew is then the second heaviest weighted hopeful with 58.5kg, Alexander hoping he can bounce back with a good run ahead of a likely bid in the $400,000 Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) back up over the two miles on March 9.

“It’s been the plan (to target the Adelaide Cup) since the Sandown Cup,” Alexander said.

“It seems the obvious race for him and Friday night well tell us a lot more about where we go with him.

“If he disappoints us we might rethink (Adelaide), but as long as he finishes in the top four we’ll be pushing on towards the Adelaide Cup.”

Renew trialled at Cranbourne last week over 1550m running a nose away second to Erector and Alexander believes his best form will be seen when he’s back up over 2500m and further.

“These horses (stayers) need to get over 2500m before you see the best of them and we’ll keep dreaming of Adelaide,” he said.

Averau and Taiyoo are both also 2015 Adelaide Cup-bound.
