2013 Brisbane Cup Goal for Zevada

The Group 2 2013 Brisbane Cup (2400m) is firmly in the sights of Tony Noonan-trained gelding Zevada after he returned to the winner’s circle at Sandown on Wednesday.

It was the first win since June 2010 for the seven-year-old who has overcome a troublesome three years of injuries.

Since winning a Class 6 race at Eagle Farm in 2010, the Don Eduardo gelding has managed just five starts.

Part-owner Peter McMahon said they had planned to head to the Brisbane Cup after winning at Eagle Farm in 2010 before injury intervened.

“He’s been the doctor more than me but we’ll go back now for the Brisbane Cup,” McMahon told TVN.

In yesterday’s Mitavite Handicap (1800m) Zevada finished powerfully over the top of his rivals to claim a half-length victory and he is expected to improve as he steps up in distance.

Tony Noonan’s stable foreman Brett Mallyon said he has a “big ticker” and is happy to see him healthy and back at the races.

“He’s had tendons, suspensorys, chips in joints and an infection in a hind leg – you could nearly write a veterinary journal on him,” Mallyon said.

Despite being seven, Zevada has managed just 13 starts from which he has scored four victories and three minor placings.

The Brisbane Cup generally attracts strong fields and last year was won by Caulfield Cup placegetter Lights Of Heaven.

Lights Of Heaven will return to Queensland this winter and could defend her title in the staying feature.

The Peter Moody-trained mare scored her first win since the Brisbane Cup on April 6 when taking out the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes at Rosehill.
