Banca Mo Shortens Following Scratchings – 2013 Warrnambool Cup Betting

Already a short-priced favourite in a big 2013 Warrnambool Cup (2350m) field, Tasmanian gelding Banca Mo has shortened further following some key scratchings from the $200,000 event.

Mick Kent’s import Tac De Boistron has been withdrawn from the race as has Robert Smerdon’s Black And Bent.

The scratchings have seen Banca Mo firm into $2.80 as he looks to continue a strong run of form.

The David and Scott Brunton-trained stayer was second in the George Adams Plate in Launceston before travelling to Victoria to take out the Pakenham Cup and an open handicap at Flemington.

Scott Brunton told Racing Victoria that he sees no reason why the success can’t continue as he steps above 2000m for the first time.

“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’s had seven starts in Melbourne for four wins and two placings.

“He races incredibly well over here so I haven’t got too many reservations.”

Second in the Warrnambool Cup market is Darren Weir-trained gelding Shiny Buttons ($6) who is coming off a third-place finish at Flemington.

Also under double figures are Lucky Angel ($8.50) and Finiguerra ($9.50).

Outside of the favourite Finiguerra is one of the form runners, having finished first and third at his last two outings.

First emergency Mickiem ($34) has gained a start following the scratchings. The Ron Daniel-trained gelding is stepping up in class but has won his past two starts at Mildura and Hamilton.

Others in the field include King Diamond ($11) and last year’s runner-up Domesky ($17).
