Sydney on Merion’s radar

The Sydney autumn carnival awaits Merion, as long as the New Zealand-bred races up to expectations this weekend.
The son of O’Reilly must first pass a test in the Gr.1 $A500,000 Australian Guineas at Flemington.
“This is the race we’ve aimed him at and he’s had two runs now,” trainer Mike Moroney said.
Merion was third when resuming and last time out he was fourth behind Wandjina in the Gr.3 CS Hayes Stakes.
“He’ll be on trial for Sydney at Flemington on Saturday. There are lots of options for a good three-year-old like him up there so we’ll see how he runs here first,” Moroney said.
