Reith Rates Namasarai 2013 Coffs Harbour Cup Chance

The Kris Lees-trained Namsarai one of the single figure fancies in the markets for today’s Coffs Harbour Cup 2013 on the northern NSW coast and deservedly so according to jockey Christian Reith who’s pumped for the ride.

Despite being in their eight-year-old season now, Fusaichi Pegauss Namsarai has been racing in great form this year producing a number of city wins at Warwick Farm.

Their most recent was a half length effort, when carrying 58.5kg, over the mile in the mud on June 12.

Reith was not aboard that run but was in the saddle for the veteran galloper’s last start, a close fourth to Charing Cross in a 1600m handicap at the same track on July 13.

Impressed with their efforts there Reith now rates Namsarai a “sneaky chance” for their Thursday appearance in the $80,000 Carlton Mid 2013 Coffs Harbour Gold Cup (1600m).

Making the trip to Coffs to retain the ride, Reith is banking on his mount to relish the Heavy (8) track today to get the job done.

“He’s a sneaky chance, he loves a wet track and he’s got no weight on his back,” Reith told The Herald Sun.

Current betting markets for this afternoon’s feature are led by the Bede Murray-trained World Wide ($3.50) with five of their rivals also under $10 including $6.50 chance Namsarai who has come up trumps with gate three.

Along with the barrier they will also advantage from their 54kg lightweight having carried 56.5kg last start.

Reith is just one of a number of big city Sydney hoops making the trip north for the Coffs Harbour Cup meeting today including Hugh Bowman coming for the ride on the Tony McEvoy-trained Prince Of Capers ($7).
