Cinnamon Carter A Chance in 2016 Pakenham Cup

In-form mare Cinnamon Carter is a definite chance in a class edition of the Pakenham Cup 2016 in Victoria on Saturday according to her trainer Robbie Laing.

Laing stables the Al Maher mare at Clyde and on the weekend the five-year-old will line-up in the $200,000 Listed Pakenham Cup (2500m), which runs a Saturday fixture for the first time this season.

Cinnamon Carter has her 48th career start in the race and is dropping back in distance after saluting narrowly in a Benchmark 78 at Moonee Valley over 3000m on November 11.

She has won one from three over the 2500m that she is back over this weekend and Laing is thrilled with her recent progression and form.

“She’s an amazing mare, 10 weeks ago she wasn’t a good thing in a 0-58 at Pakenham,” he told Racing Victoria on Monday.

“She then got a bit of confidence and won a couple of races, and now she’s won two of her last three in town.”

The loss in her last three was in much tougher company when she run just under six lengths way 10th to Jessy Belle at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m).

Laing is stepping her back up in grade for the Pakenham Cup and hopes to be saddling-up a livewire shot at the title based on her recent form and fitness level.

“She now possesses a really devastating finish at the end of her long races,” he said.

“For the 2500m of the Pakenham Cup, we would have to be a chance.

“She’s fit, she’s strong, she’ll run the trip, she likes Pakenham, we’re very hopeful.”

For her last start win Cinnamon Carter carried 57kg and she drops back to the 54kg minimum on Saturday.

Pakenham Cup weights are led by the Wayne Walters-trained Puccini (60kg) who is out to turn the tables on Pilote D’Essai after the pair ran fourth and first respectively in the Listed Ballarat Cup (2200m) on November 19.

The Lindsay Park-trained Pilote D’Essai rises notably from 54kg that run to the 58kg second top weight this weekend and is one of two nominated for the Pakenham Cup for the stable.

He could be joined in the capacity 16-starter field by stablemate Bullish Stock who comes off a third to Cinnamon Carter at the Valley.

Another notable nominee is the Aaron Purcell-trained Swacadelic.

The German import comes off a brave second to Godolphin’s English visitor Qewy in the Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) from November 12 and is back down in distance after that good two mile effort.
