Memsie Gr1 Upgrade Influences It's A Dundeel Options
Initially expected to make his Spring reappearance in the Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes over a mile, It's A Dundeel may now resume instead in the Memsie Stakes over 1400m, reports racingnetwork.com.au. The recent upgrading of the Memsie to Gr1 status lies behind the potential change in plan with trainer Murray Baker noting, "With the Memsie now a Gr1 it certainly influenced our decision, being a colt if he could win a Gr1 over 1400 it would be great for his future prospects at stud." It's A Dundeel's main Spring goal is Moonee Valley's Gr1 Cox Plate in late October.
