Seymour sprinter Zamorar is vying for back-to-back metropolitan wins at Moonee Valley tomorrow.

The son of Scandal Keeper secured a last-stride victory at Flemington a fortnight ago and will look to repeat that performance in the $80000 United Refrigeration Handicap (1000m).

Making Zamorar’s first-up performance even more impressive was the race was his first appearance since undergoing a throat operation.

Trainer David Bourne could not have been happier with the showing and is optimistic Zamorar can hold that form.

‘‘Watching him win the other day at least gave us the confidence that he is still in the game,’’ Bourne said.

‘‘From my experience with throat operations, they either work or they don’t and I would say his has worked.’’

Zamorar will benefit from the services of premiership-winning apprentice Katelyn Mallyon and her 1.5kg claim means the six-year-old, who celebrates his birthday today, carries 56.5kg in a race headlined by Lord Of The Sky.

Zamorar headlines a strong Goulburn Valley presence at the meeting, including Tatura duo Angelic Lass and Road Warrior, and the consistent Benalla horse Play Master in the $80000 1print Benchmark 90 Handicap (1200m).

Also on at the Valley is a Racing Victoria initiative for pony club members called the Speed To Safety series.

Riders from across the state will show their prowess at riding at speed after a lengthy qualifying campaign.

Among the riders from the Goulburn Valley heading down to the series are Euroa Pony Club duo Sammi and Sarah McMaster, and Timmy Grace from the Benalla Pony Club.
