Victoria’s leading trainer Darren Weir is still trying to put an uncharacteristic flop out of his mind as the normally reliable Lord of Brazil prepares for his outing at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

The six-year-old will run in the Tony Beddison Cup (1600m) on the back of a solid win at Flemington two weeks ago.

But it was the previous start, at Seymour, which left Weir scratching his head.

Lord of Brazil, with eight wins and more than $220,000 in prizemoney to his credit, trailed home last of 10 runners in the Listed Seymour Cup in October.

“We’re happy with the horse going into tomorrow,” Weir said.

“We don’t know what happened at Seymour but every other run has been good.

“He still didn’t get beaten by far even though he was last.”

Lord of Brazil has been in work at Warrnambool this week in preparation for his tilt at a second straight win.

“Everything’s well. He’s down at our beach stable and had a half mile gallop on Tuesday morning and went well,” Weir said.

He expects the gelding to run competitively and said there would be “no excuses” if he didn’t.

“It’s a good even race, he’s got a lot of weight but he’s drawn well (in barrrier three).”

Depending on the result Lord of Brazil could earn a break or be sent to Tasmania.

“We’ll give him a little break after this one for two or three weeks but if he happens to win on Saturday we might go to Tassie for those weight-for-age mile races,” he said.
