Trainer Confirms Mourilyan For Melb Cup
Fellow trainer Gary Moore also confirmed his 4YO stayer Mourilyan (Desert Prince-Mouramara, by Kahyasi) whom he described as a "seriously good horse", will run at Sandown in the UK tomorrow before heading to Australia "for a crack at the Melbourne Cup," reported guardian.co.uk. Mourilyan (formerly trained in Ireland by John Oxx & owned by the Aga Khan) was bought by Chechnyan president Ramzan Kadyrov after winning twice at the Dubai carnival earlier this year & had one run for South African trainer Herman Brown in the Gr1 Singapore Cup in May before joining Moore, who commented: "He came to us about a month ago. I have had horses from Herman Brown before, so that's why they chose me. The aim is to go for the Melbourne Cup & from what I have seen, he is a seriously good horse."
