Mornington trainer Jason Warren says he is looking forward to Friday night’s Group 1 $450,000 Moir Stakes (1200m) with his crack sprinter Bel Sprinter. “Yes, he's back on his home turf,” Warren told TVN's Racing Network.

Bel Sprinter has had a busy time in recent months, spending two months in quarantine, in two different countries, after running second behind Hong Kong champ Lucky Nine in the Kris Flyer International Sprint in Singapore.

“He actually got back to us in better condition than we had hoped, thus we’ve been able to get him ready for this race,” he said.

“I’m really hoping that he can make his mark this Spring now the great mare (Black Caviar) is gone,” he added.

Bel Sprinter has drawn barrier one for Damien Oliver in the Moir Stakes and Warren says the quality and depth of the race is amazing.

“It’s such a good field, but you have to expect that.

"He’s in good order and I expect him to run well,” Warren said.

In latest fixed-odds markets, Bel Sprinter is marked the second favourite at $4.60 behind Brisbane raider Buffering at $4.40.
