Heatherly Drawn To Get Gun Carlyon Stakes Run
Yet to be unplaced at Moonee Valley from six runs, speedy 5YO mare Heatherly (Lonhro-Dancing Heather) appears likely to have tomorrow's Listed Carlyon Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley run to suit. Drawn in barrier 2, jockey Damian Lane will either have her right on the bunny or box seating around the tight turning circuit. A contemptuous jump out winner at Flemington a few weeks ago, Heatherly always races well fresh, and will go off near enough to even money favourite. Lady Esprit could cause a boil over at odds, however the two runners more likely to pressure Heatherly are Gr1 Good Handicap runner-up Missrock and the Darren Weir-trained Northern Meteor colt Speedeor, unraced since an authoritative win in last year's Ballarat Magic Millions.
