Newcastle Cup result: The Metropolitan likely for the winner Carzoff

The Chris Waller trained Carzoff could be tested at Group 1 level following his impressive win in the Group 3 $200,000 Sharp Electronics Group Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) at Newcastle today.

Stable representative Liam Prior said that Carzoff would now be considered for the Group 1 $750,000 Heineken 3 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on September 29.

“I don’t know what the boss is thinking but I suppose The Metropolitan Handicap lines up now in a fortnight. That is probably where he deserves to be heading,” Prior said.

Carzoff made it back to back provincial Cup wins after today’s winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy combined with the French import to win the Listed $160,000 Wyong Gold Cup at Wyong two weeks ago.

McEvoy settled Carzoff well back in the field and rode for luck in the straight and didn’t panic when the the majority of the field was in front of him when heads were turned for home and directed Carzoff in between runners in the early stages of the straight.

Tye Angland shot the Richard Freedman trained Auvray ($4.40) to the front at the 150m but the huge impost of 59.5kg took its toll and he couldn’t hold off the finishing burst of Carzoff ($3.60 favourite) who had the luxury weight of 54kg.

The third placegetter Just Shine ($10) tried hard at the end of the 2300m and filled the third spot.

The 2100m of the Wyong Cup was the furthest that Carzoff had won over but the six year had been tested over a middle distance back in Europe.

“He really had to grind out that win but was very well ridden by Kerrin, a nice patient ride, got the splits at the right time and at the end it was a very satisfying victory,” Prior said.

“He travelled sweetly into the bend and once he got into that clear room he burst through and was quiet impressive today at the 2300m which he hasn’t done before (In Australia).”
