2014 Sandown Cup Hope Massiyn Out to Break Aussie Maiden

Prolific owner Lloyd Williams has enjoyed plenty of success on Zipping Classic Day at Sandown Racecourse over the years and is hoping to continue that this weekend with Massiyn after his first Australian win in the Sandown Cup 2014.

Williams has made the day’s feature race his own over the years preparing six Sandown Classic winners, the race now known as the Zipping Classic in honour of his four time champion Zipping (2007-10).

Another of the meeting’s major support races meanwhile is the $150,000 Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) for the two milers that weren’t up to the Melbourne Cup class.

Drawn on the rails with barrier one in the 12-starter Sandown Cup field is the Williams-owned, Robert Hickmott-trained Massiyn to be ridden by Nicholas Hall.

Formerly prepared in Ireland the son of Zamindar is best known for his devastatingly close second to Royal Diamond in the 2012 Irish St Leger two years ago.

Racing in Australia since August last year, he’s been competitive but unable to secure a win on Australian soil.

He has twice run second in black type company however when runner-up to Sertorius (2013) and Bring Something (2014) in the past two editions of the Listed Bendigo Cup (2400m).

Enjoying the step up to a mile and a half on October 29 in his latest run the six-year-old stallion was beaten by a nostril flare in this year’s Bendigo Cup and Williams is hoping he can go one better and shrug off his maiden status here.

“He’s had a good preparation. He had a tough run in the Bendigo Cup and did a great job to be beaten only a half head,” he told the Herald Sun.

Saturday’s Sandown Cup will be the horse’s first look at the 3200m but a dour type he should be suited to the step up in distance according to his goliath owner.

Massiyn currently leads the Sandown Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at a firming price of $3.20, in from $3.40.

His main dangers according to the bookies are Archie Alexander’s Caulfield Cup graduate (16th) Renew ($4.20) and the Ken Keys-trained Like A Carousel ($5.50) last seen running sixth in the Lexus Stakes when balloted out of Melbourne Cup contention.
