Tuesday, 31 March 2009: The Sydney Cup campaign of Moatize is up in air with a possible knee injury.
The Bart Cummings-trained stayer, sixth in last year's Melbourne Cup and looking close to a win after a fast finising third in the Ranvet Stakes last start, looked one of the leading chances in this weekend's Group 1 BMW Stakes (1 1/2 miles) at Rosehill.
But he will not be running and will instead today be x-ray for a possible knee injury.
The result will be determine whether he goes on to the Sydney Cup or rested until the spring.
Moatize is the $6.50 equal favourite for the Sydney Cup with Master O'Reilly, while Zagreb and Zavite share the second line of betting at $7.50.
