Mic Mac’s trainer Greg Eurell believes Jolie’s Shinju’s outside draw will consign her to lead at a decent speed in Saturday’s Group II Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley.

The first international to compete in this year’s spring carnival, Jolie’s Shinju’s connections have been at pains to say the mare does not have to lead to be competitive in Australia.

Eurell said early in the week he thought it was possible his entrant, Mic Mac, could end up taking up the running early in the race but he discounted any thought of controlling the race from the front once Jolie’s Shinju drew barrier 13.

“Everyone has been crowing Jolie’s Shinju will lead,” Eurell said. “I thought my bloke could lead if she decided not to but the draw more or less makes a sure thing of it.

“If Jolie’s Shinju’s jockey takes hold looking for a sit, the other jockeys won’t be letting him in. She’ll be out three and four wide if she tries to slot in somewhere. She’s got to lead to see the fence.”

Flemington trainer Mark Kavanagh has sprung a surprise gear change after deciding Whobegotyou would race in blinkers for the first time in the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes.

Eurell said he is expecting Whobegotyou to settle closer to Mic Mac than he did in the Memsie Stakes but said Kavanagh should be wary of asking the four-year-old to vary his racing pattern.

“It’s interesting when you start changing a horse’s usual racing style,” Eurell said. “If they race closer than where they are used to racing, it can take the edge of their sprint home.”

Kavanagh played his cards close to his chest when asked the reason for the application of blinkers to Whobegotyou, joking they will be used for cosmetic reasons only.

“The owner can’t see his horse in the run because of the new black and orange colours,” Kavanagh said. “We have to try something to improve the owner’s view of his horse.”
