Trainer Adam Durrant is adamant Mr Moet will give star colt All Too Hard a "big shake" in tomorrow's Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.
Mr Moet makes his interstate debut in the $400,000 feature after a stunning Ascot campaign featuring victories in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m).
But the five-year-old faces a tough task first-up against All Too Hard, who is all the rage with punters as the $2.30 favourite with Player.
All Too Hard, a half-brother to world champion Black Caviar, was sold to Vinery Stud in a package deal for $25 million in December.
The early favourite for the Australian Guineas and Doncaster Mile is being considered for an assault on the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in June.
Durrant said Mr Moet came through a gallop at Mornington on Tuesday well and was on track for a big performance. He is a $13 chance.
"He galloped over 600m and did it how we expected him to," Durrant said. "He's never a fantastic trackworker and it's just a matter of keeping him happy."

·Glenn Smith could be sidelined for a fortnight after suffering a foot injury in a fall at Ascot on Wednesday. He has been taken off his four rides at Bunbury today."There's no break but I can't put any weight on it," Smith said. "I probably won't ride for between a week and a half and two weeks."
