Mac attack on Victoria this weekend

Tony and Calvin McEvoy have some key runners at Moonee Valley tonight, led by speed machine Meteorite as well as a strong chance in tomorrow’s Ballarat Cup with Game Keeper.

Here what the Tony thinks about his key runners over the weekend:



“He wanted to break the clock at Moonee Valley on Monday morning in a track gallop. He’s been kept very fresh and on his gallop they’ll know he’s in the race.”


“She’s going well. She lost her way last preparation, but I reckon she was growing. She’s a beautiful big mare. She’ll need further but she will run well.”



“I think stepping up to the 2000m looks ideal for him. He’s in great order; he’s going to have a couple of days down at the beach and he’ll be ready for Saturday.”

SISSTAR (Race 9)

“Getting back around the turn in a race she can control is ideal. She’ll find the rail and take a lot of picking up.”


“I’ve freshened him up. He ran OK in both cups here in SA but he just lacked a killer punch and that might have been how we were training him. He’s nice and fresh, he has to come up a notch to win, but he’s talented enough if he can overcome an awkward draw.”

THE DIFFERENCE (Race 10 - emergency)

“He’s a good horse, his record says that. It’s a shame he hasn’t won enough to get his rating high enough to be running in races like this. He’ll be a player throughout the spring carnival next year.”
