Australian Racing: Revolutionary Miss to take the double

There’s eight meetings set to take place on Friday including Group 1 action from Moonee Valley.

Race 5 Moonee Valley

Revolutionary Miss @ 4.00

Race 7 Moonee Valley

Jigsaw @ 6.00

Race 8 Moonee Valley

Papillon Club @ 1.70

Miss to take Sunline

The Group 2 Sunline Stakes is the first of three Group races on the Moonee Valley card. A field of eight are set to go to post for the 1600m contest with a soft 5 track forecast at the Melbourne venue. 

Sirileo Miss looks likely to jump as favourite having built on a promising return to action with a victory in the Group 3 Matron Stakes over this trip at Flemington earlier this month. 

Trained by Symon Wilde, the five-year-old raced from the front in the Matron and looks to hold strong claims having placed at this level over course and distance last October. 

Preference here however is for Revolutionary Miss for the Peter & Paul Snowden team. The daughter of Russian Revolution is the sole three-year-old in the race and has delivered three good efforts since returning from a break last month.

The latest of those saw her win by a narrow margin in the Group 2 Tab Kewney Stakes over this trip on a good 4 track at Flemington on 11th March. 

Prior to that she had two future winners ahead of her, including subsequent Newmarket winner In Secret, when a close fifth in the Group 1 Drinkwise Surround Stakes over 1400m at Randwick.

The slightly softer going forecast here is a slight concern, as she has raced on a good 4 track in all three starts during this successful spell, but she is taken to overcome that to complete a double.

Jigsaw for William Reid glory

The William Reid over 1200m provides Group 1 action on the Moonee Valley card with 13 set to start including Mark W Walker’s Imperatriz.

The four-year-old filly has been twice a winner at this level in New Zealand, including when taking the 1400m BCD Group Sprint on a good 3 track at Te Rapa on her penultimate start.

Jockey Opie Bosson’s mount drew four-and-a-half-lengths clear of her rivals on that occasion with the second and third both registering victories subsequently.

Imperatriz was well supported in the market ahead of her Australian debut but lost out by a head in the Group 1 Furphy Canterbury Stakes over 1300m at Randwick earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Jigsaw is unbeaten this spell and is taken to get the better of the filly following a two-and-a-half-length victory over this course and distance in January.

That effort came in the Group 2 Australia Stakes on a good 4 track and, while the form there could be working out better, he returns from a let-up here as he chases five consecutive victories. 

Trained by Cindy Alderson, the pick has a good draw in five, while the switch to a soft 5 track should be no issue for Daniel Moor’s mount, who usually races on the speed.

Club for Alexandra success

The Group 3 Dynamic Print GRP Alexandra over 1600m can go the way of the Greg Eurell-trained Papillon Club. The pick won her first two starts this spell including by a length in a 1400m Benchmark 70 contest at Flemington at the start of January.

The daughter of Toronado has been kept to Flemington for her two subsequent efforts in Group company. The latest of those came on her first start at this distance when she was narrowly beaten by the previously mentioned Revolutionary Miss in the Group 2 Tab Kewney Stakes earlier this month.

Blaike McDougall’s mount sets the standard on form and looks capable of registering her first Group race success.
