RHYTHM TO SPARE WINS AGAIN

Mike Moroney plans to press on into spring with Rhythm To Spare, who made it back-to-back city wins at Caulfield on Saturday.

Rhythm To Spare won over 1600m at Flemington two weeks ago and Moroney’s pre-race fears before Saturday's Ramlegh Springs On Clyde Handicap (1600m) that he had been too easy on the gelding in the lead-up proved unfounded.

Apprentice Brandon Stockdale settled $4.40 favourite Rhythm To Spare midfield and then was able to get a nice run between horses in the first half of the straight before edging past leader Foundry ($12) to win by a short neck.

Saturday's race was the seventh of this preparation for the son of Pins and his third win of the campaign. Overall Rhythm To Spare has won 11 races and earned in excess of $700,000.

"To keep him going to where we'd like to get him, I've just kept him fresh," Moroney said.

"I thought he might have been a bit fresh and I was starting to panic that I'd done the wrong thing, but it worked out well.

"I think there's another similar race for him coming up at Flemington.

"But at some stage during the spring, at a mile, we'll throw him in the deep end and just see where he ends up.”

Moroney suggested another crack at the Toorak Handicap is a possibility.

Rhythm To Spare finished fifth in the race in 2014 and was towards the rear in the Group One handicap a year later.
