Sea Siren In Tune For Manikato

Wednesday, 24th October 2012

Meanwhile, valuable dual Gr1-winning 4YO mare Sea Siren (Fastnet Rock-Express A Smile, by Success Express) threw out the challenge to last start Gr2 Schillaci stakes-winning 5YO Buffering (Mossman-Action Annie, by Anabaa) for Friday night's Gr1 Manikato Stakes following an impressive gallop this morning at Moonee Valley, reports racenet.com.au. Trainer John O'Shea was impressed with her tractability around the tight circuit and commented: "In my experience with them, they either handle it the first time or it is just a waste of time with them ... The first time we brought Racing To Win here, he was a disaster and the Cox Plate was a disaster. We brought Foxwedge here, galloped him and he was brilliant. In his first crack here, he raced well ... She has come here for the first time and Jimmy [Cassidy] was very happy with her capacity to get around so I don't think the track will be an issue." In response to Sea Siren taking on Buffering first up at Gr1 level O'Shea remained confident, "She's very good early in her prep, if you go through her form so it's not an issue for her to be at that level at this stage."
