Zabeelionaire Has 2013 Doomben Cup Aim

Victory in the top grade, specifically in the 2013 Doomben Cup, is the primary goal this preparation for four-year-old Zabeelionaire who will run first-up at Caulfield on Saturday.

When the Leon Corstens-trained entire lines up in the Listed 2013 Anniversary Vase (1400m) it will be his first start since finishing 22nd in the Melbourne Cup.

The Melbourne Cup finish was the final start in a spring campaign where the son of a Zabeel was unplaced from six starts.

But Corstens is confident his charge can return to the winner’s circle in Queensland this winter, having not passed the post in front since taking out the Group 1 South Australian Derby last May.

“I would be very disappointed if he doesn’t pick up another [Group 1 win] this preparation,” Corstens told Racing Victoria.

Zabeelionaire has travelled to Queensland once before, finishing sixth to Brambles in last year’s Queensland Derby.

After Saturday he will head to the Group 2 2013 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on May 4 before the Doomben Cup (2000m) on May 18.

Corstens said he is “really pleased” with the winner of more than $550,000 in prizemoney who will take on a decent field first-up this weekend.

While the most of the nation’s big stars will be at Randwick, there are a number of qulaity gallopers contesting Caulfield’s main feature.

Among those joining Zabeelionaire are Lucky Penny and Dusty Star who come from the stable of training partnership Peter Morgan and Craig Widdison.

Four-year-old mare Lucky Penny managed just one start in the spring but won the first three starts of her career last autumn.

The consistent Dusty Star is a Group 2 winner and placed twice at black-type level in his last preparation.

It doesn’t matter whether you want to back a winner at Caulfield, Randwick or anywhere else this weekend, sensational odds will be found at!
