28/8/2019  Maher keen on Cliff’s Edge in Memsie

Co-trainer Ciaron Maher hopes Cliff’s Edge (Canford Cliffs) can improve on his last-start second in the PB Lawrence Stakes (Gr 2, 1400m) and enhance his stallion credentials when he tackles the Memsie Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. The five-year-old will line up alongside stablemate Humidor (Teofilo) in the Group 1, but the Maher and Eustace team decided not to accept with Group 1 winner Kenedna (Not A Single Doubt). "With any stallion, a Group 1 beside his name would give him a good after-life," Maher told Racing. com during Tuesday morning trackwork. "He’s made good improvement into his second run and I think he’s only improved again fitnesswise. Obviously, he went great last start behind a very good horse (Mystic Journey) so with that horse not there, hopefully he can go one better and get that elusive Group 1 for himself.”
Meanwhile,  after finishing a disappointing fourth on a soft track in the Vain Stakes (Gr 3, 1100m), co-trainer Ciaron Maher will re-apply the blinkers to Group 2 winner Dubious (Not A Single Doubt) when he runs in the HDF McNeil Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday. "You could see in the straight he just wasn't happy with that give in the track," Maher said. "So hopefully he gets a better surface. He worked this morning and his work was really sharp. I might look at putting blinkers on him also." Dubious had the blinkers on in his course proper gallop on Tuesday morning at Caulfield, where he finished in front of stablemate Cliff's Edge.
