Puissance De Lune To Resume At Caulfield

Tuesday, 30th July 2013

Melbourne Cup favourite Puissance De Lune (Shamardal-Princess Serena, by Unbridled's Song) will resume in three weeks' time in the Gr2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 17, reports racingnetwork.com.au. The Darren Weir-trained import was installed as Cup favourite last year following a breathtaking 8-length win in the Listed Bendigo Cup (2400m) that was backed up by another impressive display in the Gr2 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) at Flemington. He resumed for a dead-heat win in the Gr2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) in March but was immediately spelled when succumbing to a fetlock injury. The Irish-bred galloper is likely to have his final Melbourne Cup hit-out in the WS Cox Plate on October 26.
