Precedence Heads 10-Horse Zipping Classic Field 2013

James & Bart Cummings’ Melbourne Cup hard luck story Precedence is looking for their second consolation win in as many weeks having been accepted to back up from their Emirates Stakes Day win in the 2013 Zipping Classic field this weekend.

The in-form Zabeel eight-year-old only just missed out on a start in the Melbourne Cup 2013, which would have been their fourth straight appearance in the ‘race that stops a nation’, when balloted out of the November 5 classic.

Precedence was on the cusp of a start after their Group 2 Drake International Cup (2500m) win at Moonee Valley before missing out due to the acceptances of Lexus winner Ruscello.

The veteran was however able to secure a $100,000 bonus on top of the first prize money for a tight Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) victory at Flemington last Saturday with Craig Williams, also aboard for their Moonee Valley victory, in the saddle.

Having come through that run well Cummings will press on with a short seven day back-up, Precedence the headline acceptor for the $350,000 Group 2 Deadly Design Zipping Classic (2400m) at Caulfield Racecourse this weekend.

They have drawn to perfection in the weight-for-age clash too with Williams staying on from barrier four.

The other top name Zipping Classic hope this year then has the rails run, Ryan Maloney to ride the Jamie Edwards & Bruce Elkington-trained Sertorius.

A six-year-old Galileo gelding, Sertorius has been making their mark around the Victorian cups’ scene including their Listed Bendigo Cup (2400m) win two back.

They also ran in the Queen Elizabeth last weekend when a nose away second to Precedence, connections hoping they can turn the tables in round two on Saturday.

Other horses coming off a nice lead-up run include the Sam Kavanagh-trained Cup Day Plate runner-up Midsummer Sun and Startum mare Queenstown.

Prepared by this year’s Melbourne Cup winning trainer Gai Waterhouse, four-year-old Queenstown has been in ace form in both Sydney and Melbourne this prep.

After a Moonee Valley win in October she backed up in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) last Saturday and came within a whisker of Girl Gone Rockin’.

Also in the mix are the likes of Jim Smith’s Adelaide raider What’s In A Name (barrier three) and the Peter Moody-trained Miss Zenella (barrier five) looking for a form return here.

The Zabeel mare was second in the Queensland Oaks during the winter but has been well beaten in their three runs in Melbourne this time in including their distant 11th in the Matriarch.
