Jet Away Included in 2013 Easter Cup Field

David Hayes-trained import Jet Away heads the field for Saturday’s Group 3 2013 Easter Cup (2000m) at Caulfield.

The six-year-old entire received plenty of hype for his first-up Golden Mile win at Bendigo and Hayes is hoping another strong performance will get him into the 2013 Caulfield Cup field.

“He is qualified for the Caulfield Cup but his rating is too low. If we get it up to 110-plus, he’ll be in just about for sure,” Hayes told News Limited.

The son of Cape Cross forms part of a strong 11-horse field that includes a number of stayers who are likely to be targeted at big spring events.

One of those is Peter Moody-trained gelding Vatuvei who won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup in the spring and will appreciate a step up in distance after running seventh in the Blamey Stakes (1600m).

Also a strong spring performer was Folding Gear who won the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes before finishing seventh in the Caulfield Cup.

Bringing strong form into the race but facing a step up in class is Keep Cool who won over 2000m at Flemington on March 2 and has won three of his past four starts.

In a similar position to Keep Cool is Whisper Downs who was last seen winning a 2000m race at Caulfield and has finished in the top three in his past six starts.

Peter Gelagotis has accepted with Mourinho who has won twice at the distance and arrives on the back of a solid third in CS Hayes Memorial Cup at Morphetville.

Others in the Easter Cup field include veteran gelding Wall Street, Pat Carey’s mare Red Shift and last-start runner-up Zabisco.
