Sydney Cup 2017 Distance No Worries for Mister Impatience

Michael Moroney is confident his imported galloper Mister Impatience will see out the two miles of Saturday’s 2017 Sydney Cup re-run no worries at Randwick Racecourse.

A capacity field will take to the track for the rescheduled $2 million Group 1 Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m) this weekend after the declared no-race a fortnight ago due to a tragic two horse fall.

Among the line-up is Mister Impatience, jockey Jay Ford booked to ride the Hernando seven-year-old who is out to join Niwot (2012) and Mourayan (2013) as the recent Sydney Cup winners of that age.

The veteran, originally raced in the UK before stints in Victoria and more recently New Zealand, is a dour stayer who has officially raced over the 3200m distance eight times to date including two wins.

Back in 2015 he won the Listed Queensland Cup (3200m) over the two miles at the Sunshine Coast, before success across the Tasman in the following January’s Group 2 Wellington Cup (3200m).

His latest run was on March 16 when crossing a well-beaten 12th behind Chenille in the Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m) at Ellerslie, but Moroney is willing to forgive the horse’s recent lacklustre form.

Mister Impatience carted 57kg that run and will relish coming back to 52kg on the weekend where he steps out in Sydney for the first time since June of 2015.

One of the runners in the abandoned Sydney Cup from April 8, Mister Impatience was pulled up around 1000m from the winning post and subsequently came through the shorter run in good order.

“He came through it well and he’s a tough old warrior now,” Moroney told AAP this week.

“Jay Ford thought he was travelling like he was going to run right in the finish.

“It’s a long way out and probably there were other riders thinking they were travelling like the winner as well, but he thought he was travelling like the winner at the time.

“He was just about to ask him for an effort.”

Around six hoops further in front failed to hear the call and continued on to finish the race, including the Charlie Appleby-trained English raiders Polarisation and Penglai Pavilion who ran first and third respectively.

The addition of VRC Oaks winning filly and expected front-runner Lasqueti Spirit works in favour of Mister Impatience this weekend according to Moroney, who is hoping for a genuine staying test.

“It looks like the three-year-old filly will go along, so if it’s truly run it will really suit him,” Moroney said.

“And if they get the rain they are supposed to be going to get, it wouldn’t worry him either.”

Moroney is still on a high after taking out the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick last Saturday with Tivaci, his 49th overall Group 1 success as a trainer.

Saturday’s Sydney Cup result will decide whether or not Moroney presses onto the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival with Mister Impatience or retires the galloper to Waikato Stud.

Stablemate Vengeur Masque who also went around in the first Sydney Cup meanwhile has been sent to the paddock and won’t line-up again in the new edition.
