Will Super Cool Beat Older 2013 Australian Cup Rivals?

Mark Kavanagh-trained gelding Super Cool heads into Saturday’s Group 1 $1 million 2013 Australian Cup (2000m) as one of two three-year-olds in the race.

But that doesn’t mean he is without a chance. Especially according to the punters.

The son of Fastnet Rock is the market mover in the field, having been backed in from $5.50 to $4.80 at bookmaker.com.au.

He brings tremendous form into the race, arriving at Flemington on Saturday on the back of a one-length win in the Group 2 Autumn Classic.

So is Super Cool ready to step up and claim a weight-for-age Group 1? Or has it all come too soon for the talented three-year-old?

Keep reading for the key Super Cool Australian Cup facts and the reasons as to why and why not he can not be successful against the older horses.
