It’s Seymour Cup on Sunday, where a nine race card will be held at Kilmore for punters to round out a fantastic week of racing in Victoria. It will be the 21st running of the Seymour Cup, and as stated in our preview it will be the first running on rain affected ground since the inaugural race.
At the time of writing the track had come up a Soft 5, and the rail is in the true position throughout. The first race of the day jumps at 1pm AEDT.
The Danny O’Brien 3YO gelding was sent around an odds on favourite on debut at Geelong but was well beaten by the second elect in the market. He’ll go around at similar odds on Sunday, and looks like he’ll have too much class for this field. He maps to settle midfield from barrier 11 and with Damien Oliver retaining the ride, he rates highly and should take a power of holding out.
Craig Newitt gets back on board this consistent 5YO gelding for Nathan Hobson, who he has a thoroughly impressive strike rate with. He’s yet to run outside of the quinella with Newitt on board for three wins and a second. He was well held last time out when lugging a big weight behind a couple of handy types at Bendigo a fortnight ago, but still chased on solidly. He’ll settle midfield and should have a bit of class on side to get punters off to a popular start in the quaddie.
Scott Cameron’s 6YO gelding scored at around the same quote last time out on Heavy going at Geelong three weeks ago and did so in style. He’ll settle in the middle of the pack and should have enough in the tank to be fighting out the finish, he also has three wins on rain affected ground, so the sting out of the ground will not bother him.
