1000 Guineas: Moonlight Cloud in focus
by Handicappers / Globeform
Printer-friendly version


The French trained challenger Moonlight Cloud moved up sharply on the Guineas ranking last month, when she outpointed the heavy favourite Helleborine in the Prix d'Imprudence (G3) at Maisons-Laffitte outside Paris.

This trial, run over a straight 7-furlong trip, has been a good guide to the 1,000 Guineas (G1) over the years and Moonlight Cloud probably deserves to be favourite, or at least joint-favourite, for the big race on Sunday.

She led every step of the way at Maisons-Laffitte, and quickened away from the front to beat Helleborine (who had every chance) easily by 2 lengths. Moonlight Cloud, a stable companion to Goldikova, looks potentially a big improver. She raced three times last year, and was thought good enough to take on the boys on her final outing, in the Prix Jean Luc Lagardere (G1) over 7 furlongs at the 'Arc' meeting. The very soft ground was not to her liking but Moonlight Cloud still ran well for fourth place, 3 lengths behind the unbeaten colt Wootton Bassett. She actually went off favourite in the Lagardere, following a smooth 6-length win against males over the same course and distance a month earlier. Moonlight Cloud is a half-sister to Cedar Mountain (Galileo), who won the Round Table Handicap (LR) over 1 miles at Hollywood Park as a 5-year-old. She will have no trouble staying the Guineas mile.
