Bons Away kicked off his Spring Campaign with a luckless 2nd in the Carlyon Stakes at Moonee Valley today. He failed to take advantage of his inside draw when he missed the start and instead of being on the leaders back he found himself last coming to the corner. Jockey Linda Meech weaved her way through the small field got clear air 200m out and he rocketed home in 10.85s. Clearly the run of the race and stiff not to get the chocolates. It was an impressive return with the stable rating him better this time in so owners can look forward to a great ride this Spring.
