Pelicano Out for Revenge in 2012 Werribee Cup

South Australian gelding Pelicano will get the chance to turn the tables on Ballarat Cup winner King Diamond when both line up in a seven-horse field in the 2012 Werribee Cup (2600m) on Sunday.

The four-year-old was beaten by a head at Ballarat after being forced to make a wide run and trainer Tony McEvoy is confident he will take improvement out of the race.

Pelicano boasts an impressive early career record of five wins and two minor placings from 11 starts and McEvoy believes he can add to that this weekend.

He told Racing Victoria that a combination of a favourable weight, good barrier position and the help of champion jockey Glen Boss puts him in a good position for Sunday.

“He’s trained on beautifully since Ballarat,” McEvoy said.

“He travelled over well, he seems to be coping with the heat, he cantered a couple of laps this morning at Flemington and appears to be in a tidy place.”

Apart from King Diamond, other challengers for the Werribee Cup include Sandown Cup third Unsual Suspect, last-start winners Lucky Angel and Apres and Sandown Cup fourth I’m Jake.

McEvoy has not yet determined the exact path for Pelicano following the Werribee Cup but hinted the 2013 Mornington Cup in February is a potential option.

The benefit of the Mornington Cup is that it provides ballot exemption into the Caulfield Cup but Pelicano has also been entered for the $500,000 2013 Perth Cup on New Year’s Day.

Another option is the Listed 2013 Bagot Handicap (2800m) which will take place on New Year’s Day at Flemington.
