Injury plagued seven year old Mic Mac will miss Saturday’s Listed $100,000 Winter Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill after receiving 60.5kg topweight.

Trainer Paul Messara will now look to pursue a weight for age program after what he considers is an unrealistic weight to carry.

“I think it’s a terrible weight. I don’t understand it and it’s unlikely he will run,” Messara said.

Mic Mac scored his first win in four years when too strong for Under The Sun in the Listed $100,000 Civic Stakes (1350m) at Rosehill last start.

The Statue Of Liberty gelding has suffered a host of injuries since winning the Group 2 $200,000 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield in August 2009, including a hoof injury, a nasty eye injury in a paddock accident and fractured a cannon bone during the 2012 Group 1 $350,000 Galaxy (1100m) at Randwick.

“He has been carrying a rating from two years ago. He was 110 and he went back down to 104 for the Civic,” Messara.

“Now he’s gone up two points to 106 but has gone up a kilo-and-a-half instead of one kilo.

“It’s makes it too hard.”

The Civic Stakes was Mic Mac’s third run back from a year’s break and Messara is pleased with the way he has come through the run and is looking to the Group 3 $125,000 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on August 10 as his next outing.

“The Missile Stakes and the Warwick Stakes in August, both at weight-for-age, are the two possibilities at this stage” he said.

“I would prefer to run on Saturday but it would be very difficult for him with that weight.”

The Group 2 $175,000 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm is run two weeks after the Missile.

Chris Waller will also miss the Winter Stakes with French import Bayrir who was also well up in the weights with 59kgs and the leading trainer will more than likely opt for a barrier trial before making his Austalian debut.

The widely travelled Bayrir has raced in France, Hong Kong and the United States and is the winner of four races including the 2012 Group 1 US$400,000 Secretariat Stakes (1 ¼ miles) at Arlington Park in the US.
