21/6/2018 Star Fall facing Guineas test

Ciaron Maher hopes promising juvenile Star Fall (Zoustar) can press his case for a tilt at the Caulfield Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) in the spring with a strong performance at Flemington on Saturday. Star Fall won his maiden by three and three quarter lengths earlier this month at Ballarat and steps up to 1,400 metres this weekend with Damian Lane in the saddle. "He's been in work a while but he just keeps developing in work, he's putting on weight and furnishing as he goes," Maher told Racing. com. "He galloped here (Caulfield) on Tuesday morning over 1,000 metres and strode up the last 400 metres and he seems in good order.”
