Lights Of Heaven Heads Doomben Cup Odds 2013

After a tight win in last Saturday’s Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes (1800m) on the Gold Coast Peter Moody’s staying mare Lights Of Heaven has been installed favourite in the 2013 Doomben Cup odds for Saturday week’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival feature.

The 2011 Schweppes Oaks winner has been in top form over the past month enjoying a Group 3 win in Sydney ahead of her big effort to hold off Foreteller, last to second, and Transporter in the Hollindale.

Boasting awesome form in Queensland last winter, Lights Of Heaven picked up exactly where she left off in the sunshine state going one better than her second in last year’s Hollindale to Kiwi visitor Shez Sinsational.

Moody will be hoping to do the same in the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) on the 18th, a race his now five-year-old daughter of Zabeel finished a long neck away second to Mawingo in last winter before her Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup – Brisbane Cup winning double.

“It would be lovely to get another Group 1 win out of her,” Moody said.

“She’s only going to be better suited going over a bit longer at Doomben and then on to the two Cups at Eagle Farm.”

Her Hollindale victory and great Brisbane record have seen the bookies put Lights Of Heaven as the $3.20 pre-post favourite in their Doomben Cup betting markets.

She is followed closely by Hollindale runner-up Foreteller at $3.70 whose connections are confident the Dansili six-year-old, winner of the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes over the 2000m two starts back, can turn the tables on their last start conqueror for the Group 1 rematch.

“He had to race wide the whole way (in the Hollindale) and hopefully he can draw a better barrier at Doomben (for the Cup),” trainer Chris Waller’s stable representative Liam Prior said.

There are then two other single-figure chances in the current Doomben Cup odds with Hollindale fourth placegetter Lamasery ($6) and the local Rob Heathcote-trained Solzhenitsyn ($9) who was seventh in the Hollindale but still only beaten one and three quarter lengths.

Other notable hopefuls then include the Gai Waterhouse-trained VRC St Leger winner Hippopus ($13), Moody’s former autumn star Manighar ($14) who was third in the Doomben Cup last year, John Sargent’s progressive mare Quintessential ($15) and another Moody-trained hope in French import Lidari ($16).
