Newmarket Handicap 2012 – Rain Affair Can Cause Upset

Joseph Pride trained Rain Affair will be looking to upset race favourite Hay List and score this tenth straight victory when he runs for the first time in the 2012 Newmarket Handicap at Flemington this Saturday.

The online betting markets currently have the four-year-old as equal $6.00 second favourite (with Bel Sprinter) and his record suggests he is every chance of taking top honours.

Fresh off a two and a half length victory in the Apollo Stakes, the gelding has been unbeaten in Sydney for more than a year and will be looking to take top billings in the $1 million event that serves as his first race in Melbourne.

Rain Affair will carry three kilograms less (55.5kg) than Hay List and will have experienced jockey Corey Brown in the saddle when he comes from the inside barrier this weekend.
