Dual win­ner help­ing put War­wick Cup on the map

SPORT OF KINGS

Warwick Daily News - - SPORT -

ONE of the great War­wick Credit Union War­wick Cup suc­cess sto­ries of re­cent times has been the rise of Belflyer.

The win­ner of the past two edi­tions of the Cup has seen his con­sis­tency re­warded with a start in the $1.3m Kosciuszko at Rand­wick, and is a bet­ter chance than book­ies give him credit for.

This year’s Cup looks be­tween the two top raters, Isn’t She El­e­gant and Trois Choix, with a slight lean to the for­mer af­ter two wins on end at the Sun­shine Coast.

South of the bor­der and po­ten­tially the most talked about race of all time, The Ever­est, is fi­nally upon us. Yes, the race that has peo­ple aim­ing torches at the Opera House.

On the track it is shap­ing up as a crack­ing con­test with so many live chances and gen­uine group one horses in­volved. With the rain in Syd­ney through­out the week, look to horses that en­joy the heavy go­ing to find a win­ner.

SHOALS (RAND­WICK RACE 7 No 10): They don’t come more hon­est than this mare. She’s missed the plac­ings just once in her 12-start ca­reer with three group one wins along the way. She’s un­beaten on rain-af­fected tracks and was su­perb be­hind Santa Ana Lane in the Pre­miere. Great chance.

NICK IN­MON (BUSHKIDS)

THRILLSTER (CAULFIELD RACE 6 NO 4): Ran on well be­hind Smart Melody a fort­night ago at the track and the mile will suit. With a big ques­tion mark over the favourite at the ex­tended trip, happy to stick with this pro­gres­sive filly to turn the ta­bles.
