Can Sea Siren Star Again in 2013 BTC Cup?

Sea Siren is the defending champion and one of only two Group 1 winners in the 2013 BTC Cup (1200m) field at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The four-year-old has three Group 1s to her name, that is three more than both Buffering and Rain Affair.

But in the lead-up to Saturday’s $400,000 sprint, the media hype is all about the big two front-runners.

Could Sea Siren be the forgotten horse?

He trainer thinks so, suggesting she was never aiming to be peaking for the autumn races she failed to score a place in.

“She’s been working well and she’s been set for the Brisbane winter as opposed to having her ready early this preparation,” John O’Shea told News Limited.

So can Sea Siren bounce back from her poor early results and claim back-to-back BTC Cups? Or will she find it too tough in a hot race with some genuine speedsters?

All the facts about this classy mare can be found below as well as the pros and cons about her BTC Cup chances.
