Banco Mo Has Caulfield Cup 2012 Target

Tasmanian galloper Banca Mo will be aimed at the 2012 Caulfield Cup (2400m) after impressing with a dominant three-length victory at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

The David and Scott Brunton-trained five-year-old was originally being targeted towards the Hobart Cup but impressive back-to-back wins in Melbourne have signalled potential for bigger things.

“He’ll have a few weeks off and then we’ll head towards the Caulfield Cup,” Brunton said.

Backing up an eight-length win at Flemington early last month, the son of Tough Speed was ridden terrifically by young jockey Ben Knobel to take top honours in the $100,000 Hong Kong Racehorse Owners Handicap (2040m).

Banca Mo was held just off the pace for the majority of the race before being allowed to accelerate with 600 metres to go, claiming the lead and galloping clear just inside the final 200 metres.

Despite being five years old, the promising stayer has had just 14 starts from which he has recorded eight victories and four place finishes.

Bought for just $2100 as a yearling from the 2009 Tasmanian Magic Millions yearling sale, Banca Mo has already collected $184,000 in prize money.

The Brunton training pair will also nominate this year’s Launceston Cup winner Prevailing for the Caulfield staying feature.

A winner of nine of 22 starts, Prevailing has not been seen since March but won his last three starts consecutively.

The first round of nominations for the Caulfield Cup are due tomorrow so check back at Races.com.au who have all the latest news and information on all this spring’s major racing.
