Moore to rest star stayer before Melbourne Cup tilt

With nothing physically amiss with Mighty High after the dismal Caulfield Cup effort in Australia, John Moore will take a different strategy with the stayer going into the Melbourne Cup on November 1. Mighty High led to the 600m mark but folded up quickly and finished second last. 'He scoped fine and doesn't have a problem, so I'll have to put it down to the one week backing up from his previous race,' Moore said. 'He did back up here within a week last season, but perhaps being away from his home environment down there he didn't cope. With that in mind, he'll press on to the Melbourne Cup but he won't race again between now and then.'
