Defending Champ Tops 2014 Premier’s Cup Odds

After winning the race 12 months ago during a two-start Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival campaign, the Bart Cummings-trained veteran Precedence is favourite to go back-to-back this Saturday in the Premier’s Cup 2014.

The final race on a nine event Doomben 10,000 Day card in Queensland on the weekend, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Channel Seven Premier’s Cup (2200m) features a final field of 15 stayers.

Topping the current Premier’s Cup odds at a quote of $4 is the reigning champ and top weight, Zabeel eight-year-old Precedence.

Now co-trained by Cummings and his grandson James, the favourite won as a $15 chance last year carrying 57.5kg.

This year they are at much shorter odds despite having to carry two kilos more as the heaviest weighted runner in the mix from a wide barrier 12 draw.

Precedence though has a solid second-up record and come off a resuming run at the Gold Coast when third behind subsequent Doomben Cup winner Streama in the Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes (1800m) on May 3.

The step up in distance on Saturday though is sure to see them improve off that, Precedence having won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup over 2500m and the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes over 2600m in Melbourne during the spring.

Close second pick in the Premier’s Cup betting markets at $4.40 is then Zephyron drawn in barrier three with Glen Boss to ride them on the 54kg minimum.

The Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Zabeel five-year-old won with the same weight at Rosehill on May 10 defeating a good field in the Listed Lord Mayors Cup (2000m), an effort they’re out to emulate here over more distance at G3 level.

Also at single figures are then the Chris Waller-trained Danchai ($5) and Pretty Pins ($6).

Authorized grey Danchai has run second in their two lead-up runs and looks in a prime position in barrier seven with Tim Bell jumping aboard for the ride.

Two back they finished second in the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) in Sydney before heading north to Doomben on May 10 to finish runner-up behind Pretty Pins in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap over the same distance.

Chairman’s Handicap winner Pretty Pins meanwhile is after another Doomben victory here, the John Thompson-trained mare drawn in barrier four with Ryan Wiggins staying on for the ride.

At longer odds and out to score an upset Premier’s Cup result to round out the Brisbane action on Saturday are then the likes of New Zealand raider Lauren Tate ($11) coming off a Chairman’s fourth in their down under debut, German import Waldpark ($13) in just their second run of the year and Lisa Latta’s Group 1 performing Kiwi Zennista ($14) in barrier two who ran third to Precedence in this last year.
