Team Williams unveiled a few of their biggest stars at Flemington with high-profile import Sea Moon and 2012 Emirates Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon among five horses that featured in two separate track gallops. In the opening gallop Sea Moon was up against 2012 Turnbull Stakes runner-up Seville and 2011 English St Leger winner Masked Marvel.

In what was only a leisurely gallop in the early stages, Seville took up the early running ahead of Masked Marvel with Sea Moon settling at the rear of the trio.

Stepping things up at the 600 metre mark, Sea Moon powered down the outside under a strong hold from jockey Brett Prebble to narrowly edge out Masked Marvel and Seville.

Speaking after the gallop, Prebble said Sea Moon was definitely heading in the right direction.

“He’s a very quiet horse but he came to the races today and he knew that he was here for a reason,” Prebble said.

“It was a good piece of work he gave me a good feel and he’s got a great stride on him, if he brings his European form then they’re going to know there’s a serious horse in town.”

In the second gallop, Green Moon was up against 2012 Epsom Derby fourth placegetter Thought Worthy, with last year’s Melbourne Cup champion taking a sit off his stable mate.

Again stepping things up from around the 600 metre mark, Green Moon showed he was back in great order running his final 200 metres in 11.85 seconds to get the better of Thought Worthy with Prebble full of praise for the now seven-year-old Green Moon.

“He’s come to hand very quickly; his last furlong today was very impressive.”

Speaking on behalf of Team Williams, Nick Williams said they would see how each horse pulled up before likely splitting his team between both Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 31 and the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on September 7 for their first up run.

“All indications are that Sea Moon, Thought Worthy and Masked Marvel are doing very well ahead of their first Australian preparations,” Williams said.

“Sea Moon’s a very nice horse, at this stage we’re very happy with how he’s acclimatised.

“I’d love to target him towards the Cox Plate but we’ll just let him tell us whether the right race is the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate or the Melbourne Cup.”
