Hall’s Caulfield Win Followed by Seymour Success – Cup Results 2013

After scoring the Caulfield Cup win with Fawkner in Melbourne on Saturday, jockey Nick Hall made it back-to-back Cup victories on Sunday guiding the Tony McEvoy-trained Sysmo to victory in the $150,000 Listed Darley Seymour Cup (1600m).

While admitting the high wasn’t quite that of the $2.5 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) winning ride for Team Williams, Hall was still thrilled to get the job done at Seymour on Sunday aboard My Risk gelding Sysmo.

“It’s not a Caulfield Cup but it’s the next best thing on a Sunday,” Hall, 26, said after the win.

The four-year-old French import, third to Quintessential in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2100m) in the mud at Eagle Farm during the winter, had one and a half lengths to spare on the line in the Cup over Proverb.

Lord Wimble then finished off the trifecta running a close third.

Hall and Sysmo had to work for the win too, settling into last on the back of some sharp early pace to trail them until the home turn when they went to the outside and made their winning move from last-to-first.

“We thought there was good speed on paper and it turned out even more so in the run, he got a lovely run in transit and finished the race off nice and strong,” Hall said.

“He’s got a big turn of foot and he’ll be even better over 2000 metres.”

Trainer McEvoy said they would now look at a nice race at Flemington stepping Sysmo up in class for the Melbourne Cup Carnival in the first week of November.

“He’s a really progressive young horse,” McEvoy said.

“I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him and I personally think he’ll run a mile-and-a-half (2400m).”

This year could then turn out to be a trial for a shot at Group 1 glory for the horse during next year’s spring.

“It might be next year, the spring’s come up a little bit quickly this preparation, but you’ll see him at Flemington in one of the smaller races,” McEvoy confirmed.

Hall too is eagerly awaiting the four-day carnival where he could get a chance to win the world’s richest handicap, the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) on November 5, with Fawkner.

Fawkner currently occupies the second line of Melbourne Cup betting at a quote of $7 trailing last year’s second placegetter Fiorente ($5.50) who was runner-up to Fawkner’s stablemate Green Moon.
