MOSZUR continued her steep upward trajectory with a third straight win – and first at metropolitan level – at Doomben on Saturday.

The classy filly is on a path towards the Queensland Oaks (2200m), and she proved that the distance of the Group 1 feature should be well within her capabilities with a very strong finish in the QTIS 3YO Handicap (2020m).

The daughter of Churchill moved to the brink of $100,000 in prizemoney earnings and improved her strike rate to 50% under a typically astute ride by Ryan Maloney, who made his move shortly after rounding the turn.

The pair pinched a margin on their rivals and although the race favourite laid down a stern challenge in the home straight, MOSZUR had more than enough in hand to win by a length.

“It was a massive win,” said David.

“She got a bit hot and bothered in the yard, but that’s just her. She’s only small and she doesn’t hold much condition, so I wanted to get her fit well before the Oaks. We’ve been keeping her fresh and spacing her runs out, which seems to be working well and the weather is also starting to cool down now, which should help her a lot.

“She carried 59.5 kilos, the speed was on the whole way yet she was still strong late. So it was a good test for her today, she came through it with flying colours and it’s onwards and upwards to the Oaks.”

Many congratulations to the team at Kirks Bridge Farm, who own and bred the filly.
