Shamardashing Tops Tattersall’s Cup Odds 2013

John Thompson’s out-of-form six-year-old Shamardashing is being tipped to improve on their recent runs when they step out at Eagle Farm Racecourse this Saturday in the 2013 Tattersall’s Cup as part of the Tattersall’s Tiara Day action.

Due to run as Race 6 on the card at 3:05pm (AEST) this year’s $200,000 Group 3 Carlton Draught Tattersall’s Cup (2200m) features a quality field of 13 stayers, the narrow favourite of which is Shamardal gelding Shamardashing at a quote of $4.20.

It has been a long time between drinks for the top elect, Shamardashing not having won a race since their victory over Saint Encosta in the 2012 Grafton Cup a year ago.

After a failed trip to Perth last WA Summer Racing Carnival Shamardashing has failed to impress this time in finishing sixth or worse in their four runs during the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

Their last start was a sixth to Moriarty in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) where they were beaten three lengths, an effort they are likely to improve on this weekend as they drop back to the 2200m and drop back in class too.

Following Shamardashing in the Tattersall’s Cup betting markets are then four other hopes under double figures with:

  • #2 Rothera ($4.80) – Brian Smith-trained local veteran was second in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2100m) behind subsequent Eagle Farm Cup champ Quintessential before their fifth in the Brisbane Cup, 2200m should suit, plenty of top three finishes around this distance at the track so will be right up there in the finish
  • #1 Ibicenco ($5) – Peter Moody’s European import is a genuine stayer craving longer distances than the mile they’ve seen in their two first-up runs this time in, won the Sandown Cup in the spring over the two miles for former trainer Luca Cumani and should be ready to show something better than their last start ninth to Tokamak on Straddie Day as they go up to the 2200m here
  • #3 Zabeelionaire ($8) – Group 1 SA Derby winner in their three-year-old season, hasn’t won since but showed something promising during the spring when sixth to Dunaden in the Caulfield Cup and fifth beaten only two lengths by Alcopop in the Mackinnon, failed in the Melbourne Cup and have been dead last in their two most recent starts (Doomben Cup, Eagle Farm Cup), not sure what the problem’s been but if they can recapture spring form can be competitive
  • #8 Verdant ($9) – Robert Smerdon-trained stayer out to improve on their 11 in the Brisbane Cup, going to need to show a lot more here but suspect the 2200m will be better

Also in the mix with genuine claims for an upset that would please the bookies are then the likes of Tim Martin’s Sydney mare Fibrillation ($12) and Shenzhou Steeds ($12).
