Perth Cup 2013 Final Field Released

As expected Mr Moet heads the field for the Group 2 $500,000 2013 Perth Cup (2400m) which will take place at Ascot on Tuesday.

A full 16-horse field, plus four emergencies, has been named with the Railway Stakes winner out to break a weight-carrying record when he lines up with 59kg on New Year’s Day.

Such an impost has not been carried successfully in the race’s history, with no horse victorious with more than 55.5kg to victory since the metric system was introduced in racing in 1972.

Also set to carry a big weight is 2011 Kingston Town Classic winner Playing God (58kg) who has been allocated two kilograms more than stablemate God Has Spoken (56kg).

Playing God has thus far been unable to rediscover his 2011 form while God Has Spoken will need to show a sharp form turnaround if he is to be successful after finishing 12th in the CB Cox Stakes on Saturday.

Out to turn the tables on CB Cox Stakes winner Mr Moet is stablemate Chester Road who meets the topweight five kilograms better at the weights with just 54kg.

Chester Road held the lead for much of the straight in the CB Cox Stakes before his more experienced stablemate rallied and kicked clear to score a one-length win.

With just 53kg to carry, Pop Culture brings excellent form in the race and could be one to upset the top elects from Adam Durrant’s stable.

The four-year-old mare won the Listed Ascot Gold Cup in November and has since finished fourth in the Kingston Town Classic and won the Listed WA St leger.

Also contesting the Perth Cup are in-form Sydney gelding Cantonese, Patinack runner Shamardashing, Towton Cup winner Global Flirt and CB Cox Stakes third placegetter Ranger.
