Glencadam is Gold for 2012 Metropolitan

Glencadam Gold is a deserving favourite for Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained import has been in terrific form since arriving in Australia, producing three consecutive victories and is now being aimed at the Melbourne Cup.

But he faces the biggest test of his career so far this weekend as he rises in class to take on a quality bunch of stayers all chasing Group 1 glory.

Keep reading for the facts that matter as well as the reasons to back or not to back Glencadam Gold in the Metropolitan.

Why Glencadam Gold can win the 2012 Metropolitan:
