Cross Ready to Char Festival Stakes 2012 Rivals

They may be seven months without a win but on Saturday the Gai Waterhouse-trained Charing Cross will look to break the drought with an upset win in Sydney’s 2012 Festival Stakes.

The Fastnet Rock five-year-old’s most recent win was a three length romp over 1800m at Randwick back in May.

Following two runs at Rosehill this time in, the most recent of which saw them carry 60kg to a credible fifth when beaten a length and a quarter in a Benchmark 85 handicap over 1500m, they are now set to run third-up in the $100,000 Listed Festival Stakes over the same distance at Warwick Farm this weekend.

While their preferred distance is obviously 1800m and above, Denise Richards from Star Thoroughbreds hopes that Charing Cross can still be competitive in the Festival Stakes where they will drop back six kilos from their last start to just 54kg.

“His work since his last run has been excellent and I believe he can definitely fight out the finish,” Martin said.

Among the top name Festival Stakes entries this year are the likes of Summond Stakes winner Cabernet, Hawkesbury Gold Cup champion Darci Be Good and 59kg top-weight Monton out to become just the second dual winner of the race in history joining This Manshood (2002-03) following their win in the feature 12 months ago.

Final acceptances for the Festival Stakes 2012 are due to be taken on Wednesday with the full field and barriers available for our readers shortly after.
