Foundry Tops 2015 The Bart Cummings Field & Odds

A ballot exemption for the iconic Melbourne Cup is up for grabs at Flemington Racecourse this Sunday on Turnbull Stakes Day for the winner of The Bart Cummings 2015 where the early favourite is the Robert Hickmott-trained Foundry.

Drawn well in barrier four in the capacity 16-starter plus two emergency field for this year’s $300,000 Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m), the Lloyd Williams-owned Galileo six-year-old Foundry pays $3 as the firming top fancy through to take out the handicap clash.

Allocated 54.5kg with Craig Williams booked for the ride, the gelding comes off a brave third to Silverball in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill in Sydney carrying a much heftier 57kg.

He is back in Melbourne on Sunday not having finished in the money before the Kingston Town placing since a second in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) at Flemington in March last year, but the bookies taking no chances on the galloper who is set to peak over the extra metres here.

After the market mover Foundry, backed in from $4, there are just two other single figure hopes in The Bart Cummings betting this season with the 60kg top weight Our Ivanhowe ($5.50) getting things his way from barrier one and Bold Sniper ($6) drawn the opposite end of the field in the extreme outside alley.

Lee & Anthony Freedman’s German import Our Ivanhowe might have the big weight to overcome, but he is a Group 1 winner in Europe with winning form up to the mile and a half and so can improve on a ninth first-up from two weeks ago when beaten under two and a half lengths by Magnapal in the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield.

He had 60kg on his back from a wide gate that day and has the same weight but better barrier this weekend, his class set to shine through if he can get a clear run with Ben Melham retaining the ride.

Bold Sniper will need to do more work from the wide barrier on Sunday, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained New Approach gelding coming off a fourth when defeated only a length in the Naturalism last time out.

Another European import, the six-year-old had had just the two runs down under and from the back could be a fast finisher giving the front runners a late challenge to hold off.

Outside of the three single figure fancies in a big The Bart Cummings field and markets are a host of other livewire chances at better odds including the Ciaron Maher-trained Grafton Cup runner-up Kapour ($10) coming off a close fifth in the Naturalism, stablemate to the favourite Wexford Town ($11) coming off a win in Adelaide over 2500m two weeks back, the Darren Weir-trained nine-year-old At First Sight ($11) who ran third in black-type company over 2400m last Saturday at Caulfield and the Nigel Blackiston-trained local Red Ransom mare Let’s Make Adeal ($12).
