Epsom for Dead End?

The stable headed to Sandown on Wednesday with a good deal of confidence in the lightly raced and promising five-year-old Dead End and he lived up to expectations – finding the line in determined style to take out the Betfair Handicap.

Having only his fourth start and his second this time in, the eye-catching grey engaged in a brief fight with the in-form Le Bonsir before getting clear over the final stages and looking to have plenty in hand.

A more mature horse this preparation having had a lengthy spell on the back of muscle injury, Dead End may have a crack at Sydney riches with the Gr.1 Epsom Handicap a possibility.

“He has got a little bit to learn but it has always been in the back of our mind that if the Epsom weakened off and lightened off for numbers he might get in with a light weight,” Moroney said.

Confident that the son of High Chaparral will handle the Sydney way of going, Moroney pointed out that he trialled very well in the right-handed direction in New Zealand.

Raced by Richard Pegum, Michael Buys and Robert Willis, Dead End inherited his grey coat from his dam, the two times winning Unbridled's Song mare Never Promised. A half sister to the multiple city winners Southern Rose and Hushrose, she hails from the family of the northern hemisphere stakes winners Dona Streaper, Silenty Royalty, Liberty Road, Etbauer, Bold Bidder and Top Bid.
