Newcastle Cup 2013 Field & Betting Update

This afternoon the Newcastle Jockey Club will host its showcase race with the 2013 Newcastle Cup lighting up the track at Broadmeadow as Race 7 at 4:40pm (AEST).

After originally attracting a full field of 16 hopefuls there has been three notable early withdrawals from the field.

The biggest defector who won’t be lining up in the Newcastle Cup field is the Gerald Ryan-trained top-weight Ironstein who had been allocated 59kg.

Paying $9 in the markets as one of the top fancies the veteran Zabeel eight-year-old will instead be racing at Royal Randwick this Saturday in the $200,000 Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m).

The two other scratchings leaving a 13 horse field for today’s showdown are Pretty Pins for John Thompson and Michael Moroney’s Muirfield who were paying $21 and $26 respectively in earlier Newcastle Cup odds.

Steady favourite is still the in-form Danas Best, Gai Waterhouse’s Dansinga four-year-old firming in from $4.20 to $3.80 to post their fourth win on the trot.

They won successive 1900m handicaps at Canterbury last month and were last seen stepping up to the 2400m for an easy Rosehill win three weeks back with Hugh Bowman aboard.

Tommy Berry jumps on for today’s race, Danas Best’s first black type for Waterhouse having previously been prepared in Victoria for Graeme Rogerson and Lee Freedman.

With the scratchings the Newcastle Cup prices on the bulk of the field have firmed in with the biggest market mover being Lucripetous in from $9 to $7.

Chris Waller’s Pentire gelding is another in great form at a lower grade, a Randwick win over 2600m followed by a step down to 2200m for another victory this time at Warwick Farm on August 24.

Drawn wide in barrier 14, now 11, Christian Reith’s mount now vies for their third straight turf triumph in their first black type run since the Australia Day Cup when eighth back in January.

Other notable gallopers firming in their price to be this year’s Newcastle Cup winner then include:

  • #3 Peal Of Bells ($15 into $12) – Kembla Grange-based galloper won the Stayers Cup over the two miles at Randwick during the winter and were back to their best at Wyong two weeks ago running second to Wazn in the Wyong Gold Cup
  • #5 Gazza Guru ($16 into $13) – Street Cry nine-year-old is the oldest in the field but racing like a horse half their age of late, won the Taree Cup in August and were a brave third in the Wyong Cup last start
  • #12 Tenby Lady ($12 into $10) – Anabaa mare also representing Waterhouse, another consistent horse with plenty of minor placings of late most recently over 2200m at Warwick Farm on September 11, does well on a short back up so time between runs here is ideal, loses Berry but Jim Cassidy is a very nice replacement
