Waterhouse Import Chasing More Gold in 2012 Metropolitan

Gai Waterhouse-trained import Glencadam Gold will be out to keep an unbeaten record in Australia alive and take his winning streak to four when he contests the Group 1 2012 Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on Saturday.

The four-year-old gelding has so far passed every test with flying colours but faces a rise in class this weekend when he starts as favourite in the $400,000 staying event.

The Irish-bred gelding won a midweek event at Canterbury first-up and has since led from start to finish to win the Listed Premier’s Cup and the Group 3 Newcastle Cup.

Tommy Berry rode him in the Premier’s Cup win and he returns to the saddle this weekend with Nash Rawiller unable to make the 53kg weight allocation.

Berry takes great confidence from the opinion Rawiller has of the import and is excited about the chance to ride him in the Group 1 test.

“It’s funny because you don’t see Nash get excited about many horses,” Berry said.

“But when he talks about Glencadam Gold he gets very excited.”

While Glencadam Gold is chasing his first Group 1 victory, Berry will be out to score his second Group 1 win as a jockey after partnering Epaulette to victory in the Golden Rose last month.

Glencadam Gold is currently equal favourite to win the Metropolitan at $4.00 with the David Vandyke-trained Lamasery.

Lamasery also brings excellent form into the race, having produced a strong finish to win the Hill Stakes last start.

The biggest dangers to the top two come from the Chris Waller stable with the leading Sydney trainer having entered Kelinni ($7.50), Stout Hearted ($8.00), Permit ($8.50) as well as 2011 winner The Verminator ($21.00).
