Gazza Guru No Certain 2012 Premier’s Cup Starter

Experienced gelding Gazza Guru may have been named in the field for the Listed 2012 Premier’s Cup (1800m) at Rosehill but he is no certainty to line up.

Gazza Guru may not start in Saturday's Premier's Cup at Rosehill

The eight-year-old has been in work since May and trainer Stephen Farley will decide later this week whether his next hitout will come on Saturday.

The eight-year-old earned a start in the $100,000 event when second to the in-form Stout Hearted on August 18 in the Premier’s Cup Prelude.

A veteran of 68 starts, Gazza Guru has seven career victories to his name with the most recent coming at Warwick Farm on June 2.

If the son of Street Cry does start on Saturday, Wyong-based Farley is confident he can show similar form to that seen in the Premier’s Cup Prelude.

“He’s going well. He seems to enter a bit of a purple patch at this time of year,” Farley said.

In eight starts this preparation, Gazza Guru has shown mixed results but has finished in the top four in his three most recent outings.

The veteran was one of 10 horses named in the field for the Rosehill feature this motning with Christian Reith booked to ride him from barrier six.

The field includes plenty of quality stayers resuming ahead of big spring targets including former BMW winner Fiumicino, Gai Waterhouse’s Caulfield Cup hope Glencadam Gold and 2011 Metropolitan winner the Verminator.

The in-form Stout Hearted is likely to start as favourite as he chases a third consecutive victory on his way to the eventual spring goal of the Metropolitan.
