GUN apprentice Patrick Moloney continued his climb to stardom with another city double at Caulfield.

The 21-year-old son of Caulfield trainer Gerald and nephew of John confirmed his talents with a double on Fast Approaching and Kareeming to add to a recent double at Morphettville.

Moloney took his city wins this season to 31 — which elevated him to fifth on the ladder behind the ilk of Craig Williams (43), Dwayne Dunn (42), Damien Oliver (41) and Michael Walker (33).

“That was a beautiful ride.”

Moloney shared the honours for the day with Jye McNeil, just ahead of other apprentices Michael Dee and Damien Thornton who also took advantage of the absence of most of the senior jockeys interstate, although senior jockey Daniel Stackhouse chimed in with a double.

McNeil shocked punters when he gained an inside run to defy $2.30 favourite Angel’s Beach of victory in the All Victorian Sprint Series.

He rode Play Master, back from $9 into $7, to take advantage of the 6kg weight difference.

And he then gave punters more misery when he won on Unfurl ($15) for Darren Weir.

Thornton certainly made the day for new Racing Victoria chairman David Moodie when he guided Durendal to victory in the first heat of the Creswick Series (1200m).

The three-year-old son of Medaglia D’oro was too good despite a rise of 6kg on his last start win at Caulfield.

Moodie assumed the new role when Robert Roulston resigned on Friday.

Trainer Mat Ellerton described the gelding as “insignificant and unimpressive” until he has blinkers applied on raceday.

Durendal ($2.60) had only a half-head to spare on the fast finishing Duke Of Brunswick ($5) who came along the inside while apprentice Damien Thornton was being pushed wide by another Mick Price-trained galloper, Manhattan Avenue ($5) who finished a long-neck away third.

And Dee continued his good work for Mick Price on Red Bomber, who made in two-in-a-row for Dee on him at Caulfield.
