Warwick Flirts with 2015 Perth Cup for Veteran

Eight-year-old gelding Global Flirt proved that old dogs can learn new tricks on Saturday after winning the Listed Tattersall’s Cup (2100m) at Ascot Racecourse, for which he was a $61 shot.

After a disappointing lead-up campaign that saw Global Flirt finish in the back half of the field in all three of his starts, including the Listed Ascot Gold Cup (1800m), he went to the Tattersall’s Cup as the outsider. However he overcame the odds to record a one length victory over his 13 rivals.

The gelding’s trainer Justin Warwick revealed he has pulled up very well from the run and is now heading towards the Group 3 Queens Cup (2200m) at Ascot on Kingston Town Classic Day Saturday week.

“He has pulled up super,” Warwick told Perth Racing.

“Not a lot worries him, so he will now continue to the Queens Cup.”

This will be Global Flirt’s first Group level race since running sixth in the Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) on January 1 – 12 races ago.

Speaking of the Perth Cup, Global Flirt’s entire aim this preparation is to gain a start to the 2015 edition on New Year’s Day in just over one month. He looks well on his way to achieving this after winning the 2014 Tattersall’s Cup.

This will be the gelding’s third time running in the $500,000 feature race after finishing third behind Talent Show in 2013 and sixth to stable mate Black Tycoon in 2014.

Warwick is hopeful Global Flirt can finish a couple of spots higher in the 2015 Perth Cup.

“We will press on to the Perth Cup, he’s run a third and a sixth in the race before,” he said.

Meanwhile, Warwick is unsure as to whether he will start promising galloper Wink And A Nod at Ascot in Wednesday’s Perth Racing On Facebook and Twitter Handicap (1200m) or save the mare for this Saturday’s meeting.
