Brisbane Winter Trial for Banca Mo in 2013 Warranmbool Cup

Tasmanian gelding Banca Mo can earn a trip to the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival if he can continue his current run of form in the Listed 2013 Warrnambool Cup (2350m) on Thursday.

The son of Tough Speed will chase a third straight win in Warrnambool after winning the Pakenham Cup in late March before backing that up with an open handicap victory at Flemington on April 13.

Co-trainer Scott Brunton told Racing Victoria the progressive stayer could be aimed at a race like the Group 2 2013 Brisbane Cup (2400m) or even some spring features in Melbourne.

“He’ll spend 10 days on the water walker following the race and he could possibly head to Brisbane for the Winter Carnival but we’ll just get Thursday out of the way first,” Brunton told Racing Victoria.

The form guide says Banca Mo has never raced beyond 2000m but Brunton isn’t concerned.

He is confident the five-year-old will handle the extra 300m comfortably and sees no reason why his streak can’t continue.

“He gives you every indication that he’ll have no issues with the distance and he looks like he’ll progress into a really nice stayer,” Brunton said.

“He came through the run at Flemington with flying colours and I couldn’t be happier with how he’s settled in Caulfield.”

Banca Mo has drawn the inside barrier and will carry 58kg, 2kg less than topweight Tac De Boistron.

Among his top rivals in the Warrnambool feature are last year’s runner-up Domesky and fellow form horse Finiguerra.

Finiguerra won first-up at Moonee Valley on April 6 before finishing third in an open handicap at Caulfield.
