Southern Speed Still Heading to 2012 Caulfield Cup

Defending champion Southern Speed will be given the chance to record back-to-back Caulfield Cup wins despite finishing 15th in the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.

Southern Speed

Southern Speed is heading to the Caulfield Cup despite a poor performance in the Turnbull Stakes

It was the only bad run of Southern Speed’s campaign to date but she never looked like making an impact and was seven lengths off winner Green Moon.

But co-trainer Andrew Gluyas said she had no physical problem and said they will press on with the original plan of a Caulfield Cup defence.

“There was no real issue that we could find and she’s presented herself well this morning,” Gluyas said.

“Obviously it was a poor run by her standards which is a concern, but as long as she comes through the week well she’ll take her place in the Caulfield Cup in two weeks.”

The five-year-old mare had previously recorded three consecutive victories and a solid fourth to Ocean Park in the Underwood Stakes.

She was unplaced in the Turnbull last year on her way to Caulfield Cup glory but fared far better when three lengths off December Draw in fourth position.

While Southern Speed will continue her Caulfield Cup journey, a number of other hopefuls have been ruled out of contention.

Tasmanian galloper Norsqui earnt ballot exemption for his Mornington Cup win earlier this year but trainer Walter McShane elected to pull the pin on his campaign after he struffled in fourt spring starts.

Also ruled out following the weekend is Lamasery who suffered an injury in the Metropolitan and Australian Derby runner-up Polish Knight who is out for the mandatory three months after bleeding during the Craven Plate.
