Snowden’s Solemn Gosford Gold Cup 2014 Chance

Trainer Peter Snowden is willing to forgive his Summer Cup failure Solemn as they look to bounce back from their dead last Boxing Day finish with a better effort in Friday’s 2014 Gosford Gold Cup.

The Bernardini four-year-old was a $6 chance in the Group 3 Summer Cup (2000m) at the end of last month after scoring back-to-back wins over 1550m and 1800m respectively at Randwick’s Kensington track in their two previous runs.

The gelding though failed to handle the conditions and didn’t let down on the Dead (5) track for the Summer Cup.

They eventually crossed some 17 lengths away from the winner I’m Imposing when dead last in the 12 horse field.

I’m Imposing is again among Solemn’s rivals next start in the $125,000 Listed Gosford Gold Cup (2100m) where Snowden is confident his horse will do better.

“Just take that last run out of your mind – it didn’t exist. That’s what I have done,” Snowden told the Sydney Morning Herald this week.

“Kerrin [McEvoy] didn’t knock him around in the Summer Cup because he felt the wheels had fallen off.

“There is nothing wrong with the horse – he pulled up fine and he is great order.

“It was just the wet track that bought him undone the other day.”

The Summer Cup result would have come as a blow to connections who’d only just started to see some better form from the horse after a below par autumn.

That prep culminated with another dead last, Solemn thrashed 26 lengths by It’s A Dundeel when 10th behind them in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m).

Snowden’s warned punters not to write them off for the Gosford meet however, fields for which are due out early this week.

He will however not hesitate to take Solemn out of Gosford Cup contention if there’s any rain about post-race.

“He did it twice before [failed on wet ground] but he hadn’t been in good form at the time,” Snowden said.

“It is obvious now he is just a duffer on wet ground. So long as we get a good track at Gosford, he should get back to his right form.”
