Dunn Deal For Perth Cup 2011 Mount on Kincaple

Ace Melbourne hoop Dwayne Dunn has booked a trip to WA having been called upon by local Ascot-based trainer Mark Reed to ride his hopeful Kincaple in the 2011 Perth Cup.

There are currently 44 horses making up the nominations for the $400,000 Group 2 Golden River Developments Perth Cup (2400m), rescheduled from New Year’s Day to December 31 making this officially the second running of the 2011 Perth Cup while the Perth Cup 2012 won’t take place until New Year’s Eve next year.

Kincaple is the sole entry for Reed, the Pentire six-year-old last seen running ninth when beaten four lengths by defending champ now dual winner Playing God in the Kingston Town Classic (1800m) last Saturday.

It was a performance that suitably impressed Reed considering Kincaple ideal distance range is 2000 – 2400 metres.

Formerly prepared by Jim Conlan, who also used to be the trainer of boom sprinter Hay List, Kincaple has had seven starts for Reed since joining his operation in August, winning three of those runs including the Coolgardie Cup (1600m) and most recently the Kalgoorlie Cup (2300m) on September 17.

Over the Perth Cup distance of 2400 metres, Kincaple has had four attempts for two seconds and two thirds, the last of which was when they finished a nose away second to Little Slapper at Sandown back in March of this year after striking early interference.

Kincaple is set to use the $225,000 Group 2 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m) at Ascot Saturday week, December 17, as their lead-up run going into the Perth Cup 2011, Dunn engaged to ride them in both races.

While never having partnered with Kincaple during the horse’s time in Melbourne, Dunn has ridden in Perth before for a four month period in the 1995-96 racing season, during which he won the Australia Day Cup on 1996 Railway Stakes winner Bold Extreme.

Daniel Staeck is Kincaple’s regular rider but they are out with injury and Troy Turner took over the honours for Kincaple’s two most recent runs when seventh in the Railway Stakes (1600m) before their Kingston Town run.

“Trying to find a jockey from Melbourne to ride in both races was tough,” Reed said.

While over in WA for the Festival of Perth Racing, Dunn’s riding manager Dominic Cantone will be looking to secure him more rides both on CB Cox Stakes Day and Perth Cup Day.

Kincaple is one of the top fancies in the Perth Cup markets sitting on the fourth line of betting behind the Grant Williams-trained trio Ranger, Tranquility and Lords Ransom.
