2015 Premier’s Cup Field Feature Kapour

Ciaron Maher’s returning Grafton Cup runner-up Kapour is one of the headline acceptors for the key support race on The Run To The Rose Day in Sydney on Saturday, the Premier’s Cup 2015.

A final field of just eight stayers is accepted for this year’s $100,000 Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m), the handicap clash due to jump as Rosehill Race 4 at 2:30pm (AEST) on the weekend.

Drawn a treat in barrier two carrying 56.5kg is the Maher-trained Toylsome gelding Kapour, the six-year-old coming off two nice Cranbourne trials this month including a 1550m win in the set on August 21.

Winner of the Listed Winter Cup (2400m), run on a Heavy (8) Rosehill track in late June, the import was last seen running a brave second when beaten just a quarter length by Winter Cup runner-up Bonfire in the Listed Grafton Cup (2350m) on a much firmer track on July 9.

He has a solid first-up record of two wins and a second from five previous resuming runs and has also won his only other start at the track.

The only concern could be the distance, Kapour having won four of his 13 starts to date but none less than 1900m.

Heading the Premier’s Cup field and weights this spring is the Chris Waller-trained Beyond Thankful (58.5kg) who shoots for his third straight win on the weekend.

The six-year-old Whipper gelding won at Catnerbury over 1900m two back before a last start victory at this track (Rosehill) and distance (1800m) in the Premier’s Cup Prelude on August 15.

That was a narrow victory, but on Saturday he drops a kilo and Hugh Bowman retains the ride from the inside barrier.

Waller has also accepted for Silverball, drawn in gate six with Tye Angland to ride.

A seven-year-old son of Kahyasi, Silverball won the Listed Lord Mayor’s Cup (2000m) at Rosehill back in May at the end of a solid campaign, and is out to improve on a sixth to Centre Pivot in the Spring Preview (1400m) from a fortnight ago.

He has a liking for the Rosehill track and will strip fitter from that run having had plenty of his spelling weight still on him first-up.

Also allocated the 58.5kg top weight along with Beyond Thankful is Gai Waterhouse’s Premier’s Cup hope Spurtonic in gate five with ace Sydney hoop Tommy Berry booked for the ride.

It has been a long time between drinks for Flying Spur six-year-old Spurtonic whose latest win was in the Magic Millions Cup (1400m) on the Gold Coast back in January.

His last start was an eighth to fellow rival this weekend Beyond Thankful in the Premier’s Cup Prelude, but he lumped around the big 62kg weight that day and will appreciate the drop back for the rematch having been beaten a respectable 1.6 lengths.

The other runner coming off a good lead-up run is Hurricane Run gelding Magic Hurricane prepared by John O’Shea and donning the Royal Blue Godolphin colours.

The import won his debut down under at Randwick over 1400m back in early June and has been competitive in his two subsequent runs including a third in the Spring Preview two weeks ago.
