Trainer Mike Moroney has a stable full of chances coming into this weekend, with possibly his greatest chance being Glass Harmonium in the Group 1 Doomben Cup in Brisbane.

While Moroney is confident that Glass Harmonium is a winning chance in this weekend’s race, he feels that he is one run out from his best.

“We feel that we’ve done enough work with him,” Moroney said.

“He’ll be getting to his peak his third run.

“He’s improved since the Hollindale (but) another run would probably bring him on a little bit more.”

Glass Harmonium will be having only his second ever start on Australian soil in the Doomben Cup this Saturday after being imported by Moroney from England.

Based on his English performances, Moroney is happy with Glass Harmonium’s speed.

“Watching his races in England he’s got a good turn of foot,” he said.

The trainer has been working with Glass Harmonium to ensure that he improves his gate etiquette, with the five-year-old throwing jockey Hugh Bowman at the barriers before his last race.

“He has got a bit of a record of being a fraction fractious in the gates,” Moroney conceded.

Moroney is hoping the recent barrier practise at Hawkesbury will be enough to set him right.

“He went to the trials at Hawkesbury and he was lovely in the gates,” Moroney said.

Doomben Racecourse is set to have a dry track for the Doomben Cup, which is good news for Glass Harmonium.

“Our horse has only got good track form in England,” Moroney said.

“That should be a help.”

Moroney will briefly spell Glass Harmonium after Saturday, despite the fact that he has only had two runs this preparation.

“We’re going to give it a quick break,” he said.

One horse that won’t be starting in this Saturday’s Doomben Cup is Viking Hero, who will instead be sent for a spell.

Viking hero finished second by a nose to Humma in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap last start, and Moroney is confident that there is much more improvement to come.

“Since he was gelded he’s really come right,” Moroney said.

The trainer also has three-year-old-filly Born To Rock nominated for two races at Doomben this Saturday.

The Fastnet Rocket filly blitzed her opposition by five lengths at Ipswich last weekend, in what was her first Australian start.

Moroney had only just acquired the filly from New Zealand when she produced the spellbinding win.

“We’d only had her ten days,” Moroney said.

Moroney said it was no shock to see her win the race with such ease.

“Her races have been in very strong company there so it was no surprise to see her win it,” he said.

“She had a really high cruising ability.”

Born To Rock will most likely start in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes this Saturday.

Moroney’s Tinseltown has recovered well from his race fall in the Group 1 Sydney Cup last start.

“We thought we’d give him the time to get over it and he looks terrific,” Moroney said.

“He’s going terrific.

“I think the horse is going as well as he’s ever gone and looking as well as ever.”

King Pulse is also due to run in the Group 3 BRC Sprint this weekend, after experiencing a lifetime of bad luck.

“He’s going to take his place (in the BRC Cup),” Moroney said.

“He’s had a lot of things go wrong with him which is a real pity because he looks like being a Group 1 horse.”

King Pulse fractured his shoulder after slipping on hail during a storm after the Newmarket Handicap last year, and most recently suffered a foot abscess.

“We were going to run him in the prime minister’s cup but he ended up with a foot abscess that lingered for five or six days,” Moroney said.

With so much talent in his stable, Moroney has been thrilled with the results his horses have been producing.

“We’ve had a really good run,” he said.

“The stable’s gone very well.”
