Trinder Vies for Fourth Devonport Cup Win in 2013

This afternoon Spreyton trainer Michael Trinder will shoot for his fourth win in the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival’s Devonport Cup when he saddles up one of the roughies in the field, Temajim.

Running as Race 8 on today’s card the $100,000 Simons Design Centre Devonport Cup (1880m) features 14 hopefuls with Temajim an $81 roughie in the markets.

Drawn wide in gate 12 with Kim Moore engaged to ride the Clangalang six-year-old may be a winner over the track and distance but the bookies aren’t rating them as any kind of danger to the likes of Tasmanian Stakes champ The Cleaner ($2.25), the in-form Catwen Boy ($5) or Victorian raider Fieldmaster ($5.50).

While admitting the competition, especially the Mick Burles-trained The Cleaner after their third straight win, is hot Trinder is keeping his chin up and fingers crossed.

Temajim has won seven of their 25 starts to date including back-to-back victories at the end of the preparation when relishing a Heavy (10) track at Hobart to win over 2100m in May and then getting the better of a decent field over the 1880m on the synthetic Devonport track on June 17.

They resumed on New Year’s Day running two and a half lengths away in an unlucky fifth to Omega Quest in the Longford Cup, Trinder hoping they will have taken improvement from that run.

“He is a very fit horse who has run the second fastest time at the track over the 1880-metre cup distance,” he said.

“He was extremely unlucky at Longford as the interference going into the home turn probably cost him five lengths and he ended being beaten by two-and-a-half.

“Kim Moore also drops back from 59kg at Longford, to 54kg here, so he has a great weight advantage.”

While being second-up with a light weight works in his horse’s favour, Trinder does admit he harbours a few concerns about the double-digit draw.

“While he goes into the race as an outsider, I believe he is a genuine top-five chance,” Trinder said.

“Barrier 12 is of some concern, however, it’s a long straight so we will have plenty of time to work it out.”

If successful Temajim will be handing their trainer his fourth Devonport Cup trophy breaking a 25-year drought for Trinder in the feature.

“I’ve just had very few runners since [my last Devonport Cup winner] in my hometown, which is unusual,” he said.

“It’s just the way it has panned out I suppose, but our family has won six or seven cups over the years.”
