Aspect to be set for Autumn 2yo G1s after Maribyrnong Plate win

First starter Aspect will be set for the two year old Group 1 races in the Autumn after scoring an impressive win in the Group 3 $150,000 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington today.

Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy settled Aspect ($12) behind the pack in the middle of the track before weaving his way through the field to sprint away to score a one and a quarter lengths win over $41 outsider Cao Cao with Wait For No One ($6) in third spot.

Aspect was rated the number two runner of the Tony McEvoy runners in the Maribyrnong Plate with stablemate Azazel being sent out as the $4.20 second favourite after winning the $250,000 Inglis Banner (1000m) at Moonee Valley on October 22.

Luke Currie has Azazel back in the pack but the Snitzel colt could only manage to finish in fourth position.

Tony McEvoy said that both colts had plenty of ability and both would be spelled now before being prepared for the rich two year old races in the Autumn, the Group 1 $1.5m Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield and the Group 1 $3.5m Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill.

“I am going to put them aside and the big dance is in the Autumn for the two year olds so we will set them for the Slipper or the Diamond, we will make up our mind as we go along and the,” McEvoy said.

McEvoy had given Aspect a look at the Flemington track during the week and the Pluck colt handled the straight a lot better than the more fancied Azazel.

“Azazel from the outset was wanting to go left and unfortunately I didn’t have an opportunity to give him a look at the straight whereas I did with Aspect and it really showed the benefit,” McEvoy said.

“He raced like a professional horse today and when he got to the front went as straight as a gun barrel.”

“He is really a very good quality colt and impressed me with his length of stride in his finish was fantastic.”

“He really impressed me, that’s his career best for me and I have been watching him since we broke him in.”

The John O’Shea trained Resin was sent out as the $4 favourite and after settling behind the leaders, battled to the line to finish seventh.
