2013 Prime Minister’s Cup Drought Breaker for Phelan Ready?

He’s the former Golden Slipper winner who’s turned into one of the greatest non-winners currently racing but can Phelan Ready finally break his drought in the Listed 2013 Prime Minister’s Cup (1300m) on Saturday?

On raceday it will have been 1492 days since the six-year-old won the 2009 Golden Slipper and that was the last time he passed the winning post in front.

The only other time the More Than Ready gelding saluted was in the Magic Millions Classic in January 2009.

Since his Golden Slipper win the Sunshine Coast-based sprinter has raced 31 times but has been unable to rediscover his two-year-old winning ways.

But it’s not as if he’s been poorly performed. As a three-year-old he was second in the 2009 Group 1 Manikato Stakes and has 12 minor placings in addition to his two early career wins.

Just last year he was fourth in the prestigious Newmarket Handicap before running third in the Prime Minister’s Cup.

In December it looked as if the drought would finally end before he was beaten by the narrowest of margins in the George Moore Stakes.

Despite it being more than four years since his last win, Phelan Ready is still given a chance in an open Prime Minister's Cup betting market.

The Jason McLachlan-trained sprinter is occupying the fifth line of betting at $10. He will be ridden from barrier seven by experienced jockey Damain Browne.

Among the top chances Phelan Ready will have to defeat in order to break his drought this weekend is Gerald Ryan-trained topweight Hot Snitzel ($4.50).

Hot Snitzel was a Group 1 runner-up in Queensland as a two-year-old and was most recently seen winning the Group 3 Sebring Stakes at Rosehill by 2 1/2 lengths last month.
