Down south, the Mrc Foundation Cup (Race 4) over 1400m is the feature event on the Caulfield card withTom Melbourne looking to atone for his first-up defeat at the hands of Great Esteem in the Heatherlie Stakes.
The raw stayer was likened to a ‘drunken sailor’ by a former trainer given his penchant for racing in an erratic fashion.
Ciaron Maher had a week to forget with Group 1 winning mare Azkadellia banned from racing until stewards conduct probity checks on her owners.
Maher will saddle-up two of the logical threats to the favourite in Jameka and Set Square with the latter amongst our best backed runners in early betting on the strength of an eye-catching run in the Dato Tan Chin Nam.
Jameka was trapped wide throughout on that occasion and probably did well to finish as close as she did in the circumstances.
From the rails draw here, we’d anticipate she races a lot more forward and our traders are interested to see how she performs.
