Houtzen Resumes At The Valley

Last season’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Houtzen (Aus) (I Am Invincible {Aus}) makes the first start of her Everest campaign in Saturday’s G2 McEwen S. at Moonee Valley. The 3-year-old filly, who was last seen suffering her first defeat when fifth in a soggy G1 Golden Slipper on Mar. 18, is the $2.40 favourite as she receives a minimum of 14 pounds from her elder rivals. Those include the 4-year-old Russian Revolution (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}), last season’s G1 The Galaxy winner who also makes his seasonal debut.

Also returning at Moonee Valley on Saturday is the 4-year-old filly Bonneval (NZ) (Makfi {GB}), who was last seen running away with the G1 ATC Oaks at The Championships on Apr. 8.

Saturday’s feature race in Sydney is the G2 Run To The Rose for 3-year-old sprinters, where last-out The Rosebud winner Menari (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}) is favoured from the Aug. 26 G3 San Domenico winner and ‘TDN Rising Star’ Pariah (Aus) (Redoute’s Choice {Aus}).
