2013 Premier’s Cup Winner Precedence Ready for Brisbane Cup

Bart Cummings’ always honest Zabeel seven-year-old Precedence broke an eight month drought on Doomben 10,000 Day earning a Brisbane Cup 2013 assignment with their standout effort in the $125,000 Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2200m) at Doomben Racecourse.

Racking up half a century of runs today the stayer scored their eighth career victory in a well-timed Premier’s Cup performance and will look to keep that form going when they back up in two weeks’ time on Stradbroke Handicap Day in the $300,000 Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m).

Despite 49 previous runs Precedence had never raced in Queensland before the Premier’s Cup 2013, connections hoping they can reproduce the run on June 8 when they go up to the mile and a half which they last saw when third to Tanby in the Group 2 Zipping Classic (2400m) last November on the back of their Melbourne Cup ninth.

In the Premier’s Cup Precedence didn’t get into the clear until there was only about 300m left to travel when they charged home down the extreme outside running down all their rivals proving too good.

Runner-up was the David Vandkye-trained Less Is More who had a gun run third on the fence during the early stages, while the Premier’s Cup trifecta was rounded out by Kiwi mare Zennista backing up from a fourth in the Group 3 Lord Mayor’s Cup (1600m) last weekend.

“There’s no substitute for class and we might have ourselves a Brisbane Cup winner,” winning jockey Hugh Bowman said.

“Let’s hope he can reproduce that run because that was an excellent performance.

“I had a beautiful run…he did it for me.”

Stable representative Reg Fleming said “for sure” they would be backing up in the Brisbane Cup and that their age was no barrier to some more black type success.

“After he ran third in the Sandown classic that was the plan…give him a good break and come back for these Brisbane races,” he said.

“He’s soundest horse we’ve had in the 18 years I’ve been at Bart’s.”

The Premier’s Cup result was a disappointing one for favourite backers today with the punters’ pick Midsummer Sun failing to beat home any other runner in the end.
