Canberra Cup Day is set to attract plenty of interest this weekend at Thoroughbred Park including this season’s edition of the $130,000 Listed Canberra National Sprint (1400m) set to run as Race 4 at 3:10pm (AEDT).

A nearly capacity field of fifteen hopefuls has drawn a number of smart interstate raiders including the John O’Shea-trained Handfast who sits top of the Canberra National Sprint odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Third-up the Street Cry four-year-old pays $3 for the win getting in on the 54kg minimum after carting a hefty 60kg to a brave second over 1350m at Rosehill on February 18.

He hasn’t won since the Listed South Pacific Classic (1400m) at Randwick in April last year, but the bookies are taking no chances of the city performer.

Despite the size of the line-up just two other runners are under double figures in the latest Canberra National Sprint betting markets with the 60.5kg top weight Happy Clapper ($7) in the outside alley and Gold Symphony ($5.50).

Patrick Webster’s Teofilo six-year-old Happy Clapper is the only horse carrying more than 54kg so gives the weight away, but is right down in grade first-up.

A good fresh performer the gelding was last seen running ninth in Flemington’s Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) back in November and will improve on whatever he does here when better weighted.

Gold Symphony meanwhile shapes-up as a huge winning hope for Peter & Paul Snowden.

He comes up a kilo from the weight the nicely-bred Reward For Effort four-year-old had on his back last time out running second to Antonio Giuseppe in a 1500m race at Rosehill.

Has winning form at the distance and gets the run of the race from a mid-field barrier seven draw with Kerrin McEvoy coming aboard.

Of the double-figure fancies the other best in betting include Tommy Berry’s mount Hermosa Beach ($13), Got The Goss ($14) drawn wide out in gate 14 and Tower Of Song ($15) coming off a consistent string of placings.

The best fancied of the local Canberra-trained gallopers, Magnus mare Hermosa Beach is prepared by the in-form Matthew Dale and is the genuine track specialist (8-4-1-2).

From four runs over the 1400m at Canberra she boasts an impressive record of three wins and a third and is out to atone for her last start sixth here when carrying 58.5kg.

Got The Goss is also locally-trained by Trevor McIlrick, the six-year-old coming off a second in the same lead-up run as Hermosa Beach.

He too drops right back in the weights from 59kg to 54kg so should be flying as he chases his first win over the distance at his fourth attempt.

Tower Of Song is the other Snowden-trained Sydney visitor in the mix, the five-year-old son of Fastnet Rock yet to win over less than 1500m.
