Fiumicino Uses 2012 Premier’s Cup on Road to Metropolitan

Experienced  gelding Fiumicino may not have won since he claimed the Group 1 BMW in 2009 but he will still be targeted at a number of spring features including the 2012 Metropolitan and 2012 Caulfield Cup.

The dual Group 1 winner kicked off his spring campaign in the PB Lawrence Stakes and will step out again on Saturday in the Listed 2012 Premier’s Cup (1800m) at Rosehill.

Despite the long winning drought, co-trainer Michael Hawkes is confident the Zabeel nine-year-old can make an impact this campaign.

“He’s had his ups and downs but this time around everything is going well,” Hawkes said.

“He’s showing little signs that he’s something like his old self.”

After more than two months out following running in the Melbourne Cup in 2009, Fiumicino returned in the autumn but was only able to place once from six starts.

A winner of five of 33 starts and nearly $3 million in prize money, Fiumicino is a $41.00 outsider to break his drought this weekend.

The veteran faces some tough competition in the Premier’s Cup with most likely to join him on the road the the Metropolitan.

Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller has three runners in the race including favourite Stout Hearted ($2.50).

The British import is chasing a third consecutive victory but will have to overcome well-regarded Gai Waterhouse entrant Glencadam Gold.

Formerly trained by Henry Cecil, Glencadam Gold won on his Australian debut at Canterbury earlier this week and should appreciate the extra distance in the Premier’s Cup.
