Trainer Mike Moroney is flirting with running lightly-raced five-year-old Dead End in next month’s Group One Epsom Handicap.

The son of High Chaparral made it two wins from four starts when landed Wednesday’s Betfair Handicap (1400m)at Sandown.

Jockey Damien Oliver got the best out of the grey who wandered around in the straight before he stretched out well to the line to score by a neck from Le Bonsir and Lexcen.

Moroney said the Epsom at Randwick on October 1 was a tall order but it had been under consideration since the horse was unable to race in the autumn because of injury.

“He was just about ready to race when he pulled a muscle behind and when he still wasn’t right after we put him on the water walker we decided to give him a long break and wait for the spring,” Moroney said.

Dead End’s other win was at his race debut at Moe in October last year before he was second in a photo finish in the TCL Electronics Plate (1400m) for grey horses at Flemington on Oaks Day.

He was also luckless when fifth at Sandown first-up on August 24.

“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.

“He is lightly-raced but he’s got talent.”

Moroney said racing in Sydney should not be a problem for the gelding who he described as a 1600-metre to 2000-metre horse.

“We know he goes right-handed because he won a trial in New Zealand going that way,” Moroney said.
