Moloney was aboard Lord Of The Sky when he recorded a six and a half lengths all the way win in restricted class over 1000m at Caulfield twelve months ago.

But the young jockey knows that it is not going to be a sit and steer job again taking on a strong Listed class field of sprinters over the 1400m.

“I think he’ll make his presence felt for a long way. It’s just whether he’ll run the 1400 out strongly,” Moloney told AAP.

“I’ve only had the one ride on him and he won by a big margin that day.”

Moloney is excited to get a recall, especially in a non-claiming Listed race and is looking forward to the challenge.

“Obviously getting back on him in a Listed race is a big thrill for an apprentice like myself,” Moloney said.

“I’m really excited and looking forward to it. He’s drawn a nice alley, he’s been really competitive at that level and I think this weather will help him with a bit of give in the track.”

While Lord Of The Sky’s five wins have been over 1000m (4 times) and 1100m (1 time), he has been in the prizemoney at his last two starts over 1200m, but will be stepping up to the 1400m for the first time but should be able to get his own way in front from barrier six.

The Robbie Laing trained sprinter resumed from a spell for a fourth as favourite with Vald Duric in the Listed $120,000 Emma Booth Christmas Cup (1000m) at Sandown on December 6.

Noel Callow then took over the reins at his next two outings which resulted in two seconds in the Listed $120,000 Jackie Loughlin Christmas Stakes (1200m) at Sandown on December 26 and the Group 3 $150,000 Standish Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on January 1.

Lord Of The Sky has visited the winner’s stall on two occasions since Moloney scored on him in January last year with apprentice Kayla Nisbet winning a 1000m Handicap at Caulfield in May and Dwayne Dunn taking the sit for a four and half length all the way win in the Group 3 $135,000 Polytrack Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield in July.

The Gerald Ryan trained Red Excitement opened up the $4.60 favourite for the Chester Manifold Stakes before firming to $4.40 with Ladbrokes.com.au with last start Sandown winner Tried And Tired the second pick at $5.

Topweight Reparations is next in the market order at $6 just ahead of Lord Of The Sky at $7 and South Australian galloper Boristar at $7.50.

    I wanted to ask if you considered replacing the layout of this blog? It is remarkably written; I like what you got to mention. Though you might could a bit more when it comes to content so people may well communicate with it greater. You have got an awful lot of word only for having 1 or 2 graphics. You may could space against eachother far better?

    The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!! THE EARTH IS FUCKING FLAT!!!!!!

It is now and again perplexing to just find yourself giving for free instructions some people might have been selling. And we all already know we need the writer to be grateful to for this. The entire illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward website menu, the relationships you aid to instill – it is everything incredible, and it’s making our son and our family reason why this theme is excellent, which is exceedingly mandatory. Many thanks for all!
