Caloundra Cup Field 2012 – Weather Scares Off Runners

Wet weather and the likelihood of a heavy (10) track have scared off a number of 2012 Caloundra Cup (2400m) hopefuls ahead of the $200,000 Sunshine Coast feature race.

Shenzhou Steeds

Shenzhou Steeds will be looking to back up his Ipswich Cup win in Saturday's $200,000 Caloundra Cup

Racing Queensland Officials this morning gave the event the green light to be run on a track rated a heavy 10, stating an upgrade was unlikely before race day.

Despite 21 horses being nominated for the Listed event and the field limit capped at 18, there were just 11 acceptances when the final field was announced this morning.

Headling the small field is Michael Moroney-trained gelding Shenzhou Steeds who is fresh off an impressive victory in the Ipswich Cup two weeks ago.

The four-year-old has drawn the outside barrier but should not be too disadvantged by a heavy track, having won three of five starts on wet surfaces.

Since being transferred to Moroney’s Flemington stables from New Zealand, the son of Ishiguru has signalled plenty of potential with five wins from 10 starts.

Another southern horse making the trip north is Sydney gelding Roi D’Jeu who proved his wet-track credentials when losing narrowly in the Stayers Cup at Rosehill last start.

After sitting with the leaders for the majority of the 3200 metres on a heavy track, the son of Montjeu produced a courageous effort to only lose by half a length in the dying stages.

The now Craig Ritchie-trained six-year-old began his career in New Zealand where he raced successfully on a number of occasions on heavy surfaces.

Also set to line up in the Caloundra Cup is Gold Coast-based gelding Warrior Within who comes into the race with form on the board.

After some disappointing efforts in the early stages of the Brisbane Winter Carnival, the six-year-old has bounced back in recent times to record consecutive placings in the Ipswich Cup and the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup.

Last year’s winner Spechenka will defend his title from barrier three after he took out the 2011 event on a slow track ahead of Gold In Dubai.
