Tac De Boistron First-up Chance in 2013 Sydney Cup

The weather will determine if French import Tac De Boistron will have a first-up assignment in the Group 1 2013 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick on Saturday week.

Trainer Mick Kent is aiming the six-year-old at the staying feature but will only run his charge if he gets favourable wet conditions.

Kent pointed to last year’s Geelong and Melbourne Cup failures as evidence the gelding simply doesn’t perform on dry ground.

Tac De Boistron trialled at Werribee yesterday, running fifth over 1600m.

The son of Take Risks is owned by Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock and was a successful galloper in France.

He won at Group 2 level in his final start prior to arriving in Australia and was fourth in the Group 1 Prix Royal-Oak in 2011.

Tac De Boistron is currently at $34 in Sydney Cup markets, with Melbourne Cup fourth Kelinni ($5) the top elect at bookmaker.com.au.

Kelinni has had four starts this preparation and showed when fourth in the BMW (2400m) an appreciation for the step up in distance and that he is now at full fitness.

Second favourite in Sydney Cup betting is 2010 Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday ($7) who was sixth in the BMW after running third in the Ranvet Stakes at his previous start.

No other runner is under double figures in the pre-post market, with Tanby ($10), Blood Brotha ($11), Julienas ($11), Vatuvei ($11), Hathras ($14), Aliyana Tilde ($15) and Niwot ($16) also featuring towards the top of the market.

Gai Waterhouse-trained import Julienas was favourite before finishing 35 lengths last in Saturday’s Chairman’s Handicap.

He will have to trial to stewards’ satisfaction before being allowed to start in the Cup.
