JRA Cup 2012 Dance With Her’s Spring Cups Test

On Friday night consistent Mornington mare Dance With Her will look to prove her spring cups potential when she faces a quality field of fellow staying types in the 2012 JRA Cup.

The six-year-old daughter of Al Maher, prepared by David Brideoake & David Feek, is one of a 14-starter 2-emergency field engaged for the last at Moonee Valley tomorrow night, the $200,000 Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m).

Drawn in extreme outside barrier 16 with Dwayne Dunn engaged, Dance With Her is one of the top fancies in the JRA Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au paying $8.50 in markets led by the in-form Lloyd Williams-owned Excluded ($2.80).

A dual stakes winner during the winter with wins in the Warrnambool Cup (2350m) and Centeaurea Stakes (2005m), Dance With Her also enjoyed two excellent runs in Brisbane last season.

In her Queensland debut she finished a devastatingly close second to Fantastic Blue in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2200m) at Doomben before her slashing second behind the Peter Moody-trained Lights Of Heaven in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 9.

Sent for a well-earned rest after her Brisbane Cup run Dance With Her resumed racing at Flemington on September 8 finishing three lengths away fifth to reigning Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed in the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m).

She is tipped to improve second-up over the extra distance continuing her nice association with the track.

“It was a very good first up run and she is in very good shape,” co-trainer Brideoake said.

“I think she has improved from the run and we couldn’t have her any better, everything is really positive barring the wide draw.

“Her preparation has been really good and she hasn’t missed a beat it’s just disappointing she has drawn so wide.”

The barrier aside, Brideoake believes there isn’t much stopping Dance With Her running a big race on Sunday, not even the chance of some rain in Melbourne.

“There is some wet weather forecast for Friday and I will believe it when I see it but she runs well in the wet so that won’t be a problem,” he said, referring to both the mare’s Slow (5-2-0-1) and Heavy (10-4-3-2) track records.

“She generally races forward and is very versatile.

“She races really well at the valley so she is tried and proven at the track, tried and proven at the distance and if we drew four or five we probably would have been pretty happy but it wasn’t to be.”

If she produces a good run in the JRA Cup this week she has the potential to progress onto the $2.65 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 20, and possibly even the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

To make the Caulfield Cup field however Dance With Her needs to win a lead-up race and earn a weight penalty, the mare currently on 50.5kg sitting 44th on the order of entry.

“She potentially in the next couple of runs if she was to win one of these races we would look at the Caulfield Cup or potentially even the Melbourne Cup,” Brideoake said.

“I think she has got good staying capacity but she now in her order of entry will obviously need to get a penalty to get a run.”

Her price in the futures Caulfield Cup betting odds is non-surprisingly quite juicy, Dance With Her paying $126.
