Sincero Favourite for QTC Cup

The Stephen Farley trained Sincero has been declared a $2.50 favourite for the Group Two QTC Cup at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Sincero seeks their seventh straight win in the QTC Cup on Saturday

Sincero currently sits 19th in the order of entry for the Stradbroke Handicap, meaning he must put in a strong performance on Saturday or hope that one of his rivals higher on the order of entry is not a final acceptor, if he is to gain entry into the Group One race.

Sincero, who has won eight of his 12 career starts, including six of his last seven, will have no excuses on the weekend after drawing perfectly in the inside gate for Saturday’s race.

Sydney jockey Tim Clark will ride Sincero on Saturday because regular jockey Chris O’Brien is unable to ride at the 52.5 kg Sincero will carry in the QTC Cup. Interestingly, Sincero has never won a race without O’Brien in the saddle.

“I needed a jockey who can ride light but still have the nerve to get the job done and I think Tim is perfect for Sincero on Saturday,” said Farley.

However it is proven Group One jockey Glen Boss that will have first call on the horse should he qualify for the Stradbroke.

Another trying to qualify for the Stradbroke from the QTC Cup will be the Peter Moody trained Curtana.

Curtana, who is currently $4.60 second favourite for the QTC Cup, sits 20th in the order of entry for the Stradbroke and faces a similar set of circumstances to Sincero, in that he must win to ensure his place in the Stradbroke.

Curtana was given no favours at the Barrier draw and will start from gate 14 for jockey Stephen Baster.

Despite the fact that neither is assured a start, both Sincero ($5.50) and Curtana ($15.00) have been met with solid support in pre-post markets for the Stradbroke Handicap.

That is despite the fact that in the 32 year history of the QTC Cup, not a single winner has gone onto salute in the Stradbroke.
