More To Come From Merovee

By Brad Gray At Royal Randwick

Super Ex claimed the honours in the ANZ Bloodstock News Handicap, breaking the 1300m Randwick track record only recently set by Dracarys, but it was the run of $1.6m Frankel colt Merovee that had punters talking.

Earlier in the week Chris Waller forecasted that “you’ll be talking about him after the race.” That was certainly the case with Merovee cutting into Super Ex’s margin across the line and breezing past Godolphin’s spruiked colt Beau Geste.

“He is a very good horse. Simple as that,” Waller said.

“That didn’t surprise me. It was probably a length better than I expected. We have seen some very good things from him at home, now I’ve just got to nurse him and get him to come on, hold his weight and keep his confidence which can easily be ruined if you back them up too quickly.

“We’ll push on. He is a definite Guineas horse in the autumn but I’m just not sure how far we’ll get into the spring.”

Meanwhile, Mark Newnham suggested that Super Ex, who has strung together three straight wins after a luckless debut at Newcastle behind D’argento, will likely be sent for a short break.

“That was his fourth run in his first preparation and he is eligible for Magic Millions so if he is going to have a break before then he is going to have to do it pretty soon,” said Newnham.

“I came here with a pretty good opinion of mine and he has backed it up. You come into these races thinking you’ve got a nice horse and then you have a look at the opposition and you think I need to have a ‘really’ nice horse to be able to win.

“He probably chases better but there was no leader today and he is pretty fool proof. He can sit there and he doesn’t overuse himself.”
