Boss to Ride Petits Filous in Moir Stakes 2015

One of the country’s best hoops has picked up the ride on the super exciting Petits Filous with the undefeated filly set to defend her flawless race record under the lights at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Friday evening in the 2015 Moir Stakes.

The $450,000 Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) is the first of five Group 1 races taking place across the three-day football Grand Final long weekend and is set to attract a class field of ace sprinters.

One of the sure to be favourites in the Moir Stakes odds at and a confirmed runner is Ciaron Maher’s three-year-old Street Boss filly Petits Filous who has won all four of her career starts to date.

The first of those was an ultra-impressive six length effort on debut at the same track and distance she returns to for Friday night’s Moir Stakes, Petits Filous returning next start for another solid two length 1000m win at the Valley.

Next-up in mid-August she travelled to Caulfield and went up in class, something she handled without issue defeating Jalan Jalan to win the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m).

Last start she became a dual stakes winner at Flemington on September 12 winning the Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m), all four of her turf triumphs occurring with jockey Damien Oliver in the saddle.

This weekend when she makes her Group 1 debut in the Moir Stakes, the suspended Oliver will be replaced by Boss who shoots for his second win in the sprint classic following his winning ride aboard Mistegic (2001).

Petits Filous had 57kg on her back for her last start win and will relish the drop down to just 51kg under the WFA conditions this weekend.

Another confirmed Moir Stakes jockey for Friday’s feature is the ‘Magic Man’, Brazilian Joao Moreira to make his first appearance in the weight-for-age clash aboard the John O’Shea-trained Furnaces.

While the Caulfield-based Maher might be saddling up his maiden Moir Stakes runner in the impressive Petits Filous, looking to become the first three-year-old to win the race since the filly Virage De Fortune (2005) took it out a decade earlier, O’Shea has had two previous runners.

He has prepared one third placegetter and this year Furnaces represents him and the Godolphin stable, the fellow three-year-old last seen running third to Chautauqua in the Group 2 McEwen Stakes (1000m) at the track and distance on September 5.

Group 1 performed when sixth to Vancouver in the Golden Slipper at Rosehill in Sydney over the autumn, Exceed And Excel colt Furnaces backed up after that to salute on a Heavy (9) track at Randwick in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) before his Melbourne debut in the McEwen.

Last year’s fourth-placed mare Angelic Light, who came off a win over Lankan Rupee in the McEwen Stakes before being beaten under a length by the Moir Stakes winner Buffering (2014), is back in the mix again this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The six-year-old Robbie Griffiths-trained daughter of Holy Roman Emperor was last seen racing at the Valley on March 27 when seventh to Lucky Hussler in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m).

Not having won a race since last spring’s McEwen, she is set to return in the Moir with Mark Zahra in the saddle.

The Moir Stakes 2015 nominations are due for release on Monday afternoon so stay tuned.
