1kg 2014 Melbourne Cup Penalty for Deane Martin

Bruce Wallace’s progressive stayer Deane Martin is one step closer to a fairytale spring finish in the Melbourne Cup 2014 at Flemington this November after copping a 1kg penalty for his Sydney win over the weekend.

The Keeper gelding from New Zealand continued to build on his form this time in with a quarter length win after holding off some fast finishers in the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens last Saturday.

That was a nice improvement on his last start third at the track behind Chris Waller’s French import He’s Your Man in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) where the five-year-old was blocked for a run on the home straight.

Nominated for all the staying majors this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the Takanini-based gelding has lines with Zabeel, the sire of his damn Ela Nimue, but failed in his first look at the two miles back home in March.

After some promising form over the previous 12 months he ran in the Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m) at Ellerslie but could only manage to finish a distant 16th behind the now Chris Waller-trained Who Shot Thebarman.

Who Shot Thebarman, last seen winning a 2000m handicap at Flemington on September 13, is now targeting the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) on November 4 back at the track.

The world’s richest handicap is also on the cards for Deane Martin who was originally allocated 51kg.

Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter this week announced a one kilogram penalty for the Melbourne Cup however after the horse’s Colin Stephen success that saw him pass the first ballot clause for the Cup.

He is still well down the Melbourne Cup order of entry however sitting 63rd on the ballot for the ‘race that stops a nation’.

If he does get into the capacity 24-starter Melbourne Cup field he will carry 52kg, a nice weight as he had 55kg for the Colin Stephen where Iggi Pop finished second.

“The penalty for the Melbourne Cup takes Deane Martin to 7kg below the topweight Admire Rakti (58kg), but we decided not to issue a penalty for the Caulfield Cup, where he has 6kg less than Admire Rakti,” Carpenter told TVN on Monday.

The $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) runs on October 18.

Deane Martin is paying $81 in futures Melbourne Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au and is a $151 roughie in Caulfield Cup betting.

He also features in the nominations for the $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Royal Randwick in Sydney this Saturday where he’s likely to run in an attempt to move up the Melbourne Cup ballot.

Early favourite to win the 2014 The Metropolitan this weekend is the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Spillway ($4.40).

Further down the all-in The Metropolitan betting markets, Deane Martin pays $15 to go back-to-back on successive Saturdays.
