JRA Cup Next for Jon Snow

Thursday, 21st September 2017

Meanwhile, Lizzie L'Amour's stable-mate Jon Snow (Iffraaj-Orinda, by O'Reilly) is scheduled to have his next start in the Gr3 JRA Cup (2040m) at the Moonee Valley night meeting on Friday week (29 September), reports NZ Racing Desk. Last season's Australian Derby winner was having his second run this campaign when finishing eighth (beaten 6 lengths) behind Humidor in last weekend's Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington. "I was happy with his run," co-trainer Murray Baker said. "He got tightened a bit and it was a funny run race because they went hard for the first 1000m. He's probably looking for 2000m." Like his stable-mates Bonneval and Lizzie L'Amour, Jon Snow is being aimed at the $3.15 million Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on 21 October.
