This Thursday the latest provincial cup race will take place in Queensland with the Toowoomba Cup 2012, Pat Duff’s Deagon galloper Duel Show favourite for the staying showdown.
Set to run as Toowoomba Race 7 at 4:05pm (QLD time) tomorrow, one race after the $150,000 Listed Kristy Banks Weetwood Handicap (1200m), this year’s edition of the $100,000 Toowoomba Cup (2100m) has drawn a final field of 13 horses.
Drawn in barrier nine with Grant Cooksley booked for the ride is race favourite Duel Show.
In the Toowoomba Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au Duel Show sits top of the markets at $4.20, the Show A Heart five-year-old out for their third win on the trot.
After a successful victory over the Sunshine Coast mile last month Duel Show, a veteran of 35 starts to date, was last seen beating a class field over 1800-metres at Eagle Farm on March 17.
Following closely in the Toowoomba Cup betting markets at bookmaker.com.au is then Emoticon at a quote of $5.
Mark Webb’s local Toowoomba stayer has drawn wide in barrier 12 for tomorrow but has plenty of time to make the ground.
The grey Ferocity four-year-old hasn’t won a race since July last year, but they have been thereabouts this season and getting up to the 2100m should suit.
In what is shaping up as an open betting affair other single-figure chances in the Toowoomba Cup 2012 field and odds are then Bruce Hill’s Gold Coast visitor Contract Caterer ($6 bookmaker.com.au), in-form Viscount four-year-old Taira ($7 bookmaker.com.au), 2010 Weetwood Handicap winner Poor Judge ($9 bookmaker.com.au) and the Tony Gollan-trained mare Bang On ($8 bookmaker.com.au).
Ace Brisbane hoop Chris Munce has been booked to ride Bang On.
