Pride Out to Rain on Buffering’s Parade – 2013 BTC Cup

Like Buffering, Rain Affair is yet to taste Group 1 success but has one of the best chances of his career to break the duck this weekend.

The five-year-old has 11 wins and four minor placings from 20 starts and will bring strong form with him when he arrives in Queensland on Thursday.

After consecutive fourths to begin his autumn campaign, Rain Affair took All Too Hard almost to the line before being run over in the dying stages of the Group 1 All Aged Stakes.

It was the third Group 1 placing of Rain Affair’s career and trainer Joe Pride is confident he can go one better on Saturday.

“I’m very happy with the horse, he is going as well as ever,” Pride told News Limited.

The son of Commands got through a final piece of serious work on Tuesday in order to sharpen up for the Queensland feature.

Rain Affair will remain in Queensland following Saturday’s BTC Cup for a crack at the second leg of Brisbane’s winter sprint treble in the Doomben 10,000 (1350m).

Queensland’s reigning horse of the year Buffering is set to start as favourite on his home track.

The five-year-old underwent a a sharp tune-up at Doomben on Tuesday, leaving jockey Damian Browne confident of his chances.

“He probably feels better than he has ever felt,” Browne said.

Huge day of racing to kick off the winter carnival in Brisbane this weekend and will have sensational odds!
