Gazza Guru Eyes Grafton Cup 2012

Stephen Farley’s veteran Wyong galloper Gazza Guru will be out this afternoon to maintain their flawless record at Grafton Racecourse when the rising eight-year-old tackles a top field in the 2012 Grafton Cup.

Gazza Guru

Gazza Guru will shoot for their third win from as many starts at Grafton in today's 2012 Grafton Cup

The Street Cry gelding has twice raced at the Clarence River Jockey Club’s premier course for two victories including last year’s South Grafton Cup.

Gazza Guru was in flying form last spring and went on to record four third place finishes after their South Grafton Cup success in the Coffs Harbour Cup, Listed Wyong Gold Cup, Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup and the Group 3 Craven Plate.

This time in they have had five runs including a win over the Warwick Farm mile early last month, but there is no denying their form is not quite the same.

Last start they were seen running sixth to Lethal Arrow in a benchmark 85 over 1900m at Rosehill, Farley hopeful they can bounce back getting back to their favourite track in today’s $150,000 Listed Maclean Bowling Club Grafton Cup (2350m).

Running as Grafton Race 6 at 3:22pm the Grafton Cup 2012 field is down to 10 following the early withdrawal of #1 Hume.

In the latest Grafton Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au the John Thompson-trained Shamardashing ($3) and Ross Stitt’s hopeful Southern Shimmer ($3.20) lead the way.

Further down the markets is Gazza Guru, still one of the top fancies paying $8 to win their third from as many starts at the track.

One person confident the horse has what it takes this afternoon is jockey Peter Robl who will be riding at the Grafton Cup Carnival for just the second time.

It will be Robl’s first time in the saddle of Gazza Guru and the experienced hoop is excited about their chances.

“He’s been set for the race and he’s been going well,” Robl said.

“He won three starts ago at Warwick Farm and has raced well at the Grafton track in the past so he looks a nice ride in the race.

“His form at the track is definitely a big plus.

“If he can take his form of three starts ago at Warwick Farm, that form would probably be good enough to win a Grafton Cup.

“Steve (Farley) said the horse is going well so if he runs up to his best he should be hard to beat.”
