Rialya Out for Upset 2012 Adelaide Cup Result

Morphettville trainer Lloyd Kennewell is hopeful that Monday’s Adelaide Cup 2012 trophy will remain in the Festival State as he prepares to saddle-up the best of the local hope’s Rialya against a smart field of rivals.

The final field for the $400,000 Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m), South Australia’s premier staying race, was released on Wednesday with Kempinsky four-year-old Rialya one of a full 20 stayers accepted.

Betting markets on the field were updated and released soon after, Michael Moroney’s Victorian visitor the imported Drunken Sailor the firm $3.20 favourite in the Adelaide Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au.

With two other interstate raiders the only other hopefuls under $10 in the betting, the Peter Moody-trained Hanks ($6 bookmaker.com.au) and Tassi galloper Norsqui ($9 bookmaker.com.au), $11 chance Rialya is the shortest-priced of the local Adelaide Cup contingent.

While Monday’s assignment is certainly Rialya’s most testing to date Kennewell, 28, gained some confidence from her last-start effort when two and a half lengths away second to fellow Adelaide Cup rival Enchanting Waters ($12 bookmaker.com.au) in the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) at the track last Saturday.

The Lord Reims second came one run after Rialya scored a narrow victory, the sixth of their career, in the Listed Birthday Cup (2028m) also run at Morphettville.

Saturday they step up to the true two-mile (3200m) cup distance, and how they handle that will be key to the nicely-drawn (barrier three) horse’s chances.

“If he takes his spot, I expect him to run well in the (Adelaide) Cup,” Kennewell said.

In other Adelaide Cup news, triple Melbourne Cup winning hoop Glen Boss has been cleared to take the mount on the Robert Smerdon-trained Saddler’s Story, second to Muir in the Adelaide Cup last year, after choosing to start his suspension after Monday’s meeting.

Saddler’s Story ($14 bookmaker.com.au) is one of two horses to represent Smerdon on Monday and they play second-fiddle to their better-favoured stablemate Persian Star ($10 bookmaker.com.au) in the Adelaide Cup markets.
