Gosford Gold Cup 2012 Final Field & Barrier Draw – Straight Albert in One

The final field for the 2012 Gosford Gold Cup, scheduled to run this Thursday at Gosford Racecourse, has been released with 14 gallopers accepted for the popular summer cup clash, likely favourite Straight Albert drawing the inside barrier.

King Lionheart

King Lionheart has suffered a blow drawing barrier 14 of 14 for the 2012 Gosford Gold Cup this Thursday

Magic Albert four-year-old Straight Albert, now under the preparation of Warwick Farm horseman Guy Walter, took their recent record to three straight wins last Monday with a narrow victory in the Listed Tattersall’s Club Cup (2095m).

That was their second Cup success in three starts, along with the Goulburn Cup (1600m) in November, Straight Albert jumping from barrier two for both victories.

On Thursday they will again advantage from an inside gate having come up with barrier one of 14 for the $125,000 Listed Gosford Quarries Gosford Gold Cup (2100m), their latest distance test after living up to their staying potential last start.

“The way he was racing over 1600 metres convinced us he was looking for further,” Walter said.

“He is a lovely horse to deal with and he showed his quality when he fought back at Warwick Farm.”

Walter also pointed towards a second to Gai Waterhouse’s subsequent Caulfield Cup placegetter Tullamore over 2200 metres at Scone last May, when under the preparation of Michael Dobie, as an indicator that Straight Albert would be well suited to the distance on Thursday.

“He did finish second to Tullamore in a race at Scone before I got him,” he said.

Other horses that drew well in the Gosford Gold Cup barrier draw include the Tim Martin-trained veteran Scouting Wide (barrier two), Peter Moody’s Zabeel mare Zoomania (barrier three) last seen winning at Caulfield over 2600 metres on Boxing Day by five lengths and Tattersall’s Club Cup runner-up Winning Glory (barrier four) from the stables of David Payne.

Gai Waterhouse’s 59.5kg topweight King Lionheart came up with the ‘visitor’s gate’, the Al Maher five-year-old due to jump from 14 as they race in their sixth stakes race on the trot.

After a brave third to Monton in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm on December 17, King Lionheart returned to the venue to finish a credible fourth in the Tat’s Club Cup and will be out to turn the tables on the horses that beat them home that day.

Meanwhile the Chris Waller-trained duo Whipper five-year-old Wazn and last year’s Gosford Cup third placegetter Alexander Of Hales also drew wide with barriers 12 and 13 respectively.

The 2012 Gosford Gold Cup is scheduled to run as Gosford Race 6 at 6:10pm (NSW time) on Thursday, with riders to be confirmed by Tuesday.
