Caulfield Saturday Racing – 2012 Easter Cup Field

Robert Smerdon-trained gelding Shewan will start as the top weight in the 2012 Easter Cup in what is the feature race at Caulfield this Saturday.

To win the Group 3 2000 metre race, the five-year-old will have to equal a weight carrying record (60kg) which has not been achieved in the event since 1969.

A winner of five races from 17 starts, Shewan last scored victory in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes at Caulfield last year.

He will be at home over the stayer’s distance, having recorded three of his five career victories at distances of 2000 metres or more.

The in-form horse heading into Saturday’s race is five-year-old mare Dance With Her who is chasing a third consecutive victory.

She won the Yalumba Golden Mile at Bendigo on March 17 following a spell and backed it up eight days later with victory in the Pakenham Cup.

She has won at 2000 metres before and another two times at 2040 metres, meaning Saturday’s distance won’t trouble her when she runs from barrier three.

Another last-start winner named among the 15-horse Easter Cup runners is Mark Webb-trained gelding Over Quota.

The experienced six-year-old made it nine career victories from 43 starts when he won the Thomas Hanley Mile at Moonee Valley last weekend.

Leading trainer Peter Moody has one horse running on Saturday with five-year-old gelding King Diamond set to come out of barrier nine.

The winner of five races from 19 starts responded well to a disappointing ninth in the Canberra Cup by finishing third to Extra Zero in the Albury Cup on March 23.

The Easter Cup is the seventh race on the Caulfield card this Saturday and is set to jump at 4:12pm (AEST).
