New Zealand trainer John Bary has dismissed a track gallop in which star four-year-old Jimmy Choux was soundly beaten by Cox Plate rival Rekindled Interest at Moonee Valley.

Bary said the gallop was “messed up” as a stablemate of the Jim Conlan-trained Rekindled Interest was supposed to set the pace but was unable to shake off the two Cox Plate horses and Rekindled Interest won the gallop by about three lengths.

“It just got messed up a bit. We thought we’d use a pacemaker and they just walked early and sprinted away,” Bary said.

“Hey you know it’s only Tuesday. I’m more worried about my guy finishing (off) on Saturday.

“You’ve seen them stuff up in England and we might have done here in Australia too today.”

Jimmy Choux, who has won 12 of his 21 starts including five at Group One level, was having his second look at Moonee Valley having worked there last Tuesday.

Bary said his race rider Jonathan Riddell did the right thing by holding Jimmy Choux together in Tuesday’s Breakfast with the Best workout.

“He could have let the hammer go and closed but there was no point,” he said.

“He worked a nice mile (1600m) on Saturday (at Flemington) and this was all about looking at the Valley and he’s seen it twice now and it just doesn’t affect him at all so we’re confident.

“He’s a real professional.”

Bary said the Thorn Park entire works on his own at home as he kept trouncing his workmates.

He said Jimmy Choux was a better horse since the autumn when he won the New Zealand Derby and the Rosehill Guineas.

“Definitely, he’s a lot stronger, a lot more composed and a lot more arrogant,” he said.

Conlan said the stablemate was supposed to set the pace and Rekindled Interest and Jimmy Choux were supposed to join in at the 600m and both finish off “very strongly”.

“Jimmy Choux for some reason hasn’t taken my bloke into the straight,” he said.

“That’s the only thing about the gallop I would have liked to have seen, just a little bit more acid put on him.”

Conlan acknowledged that it was only a track gallop and it could be different come Saturday.
