Australian Cup 2024 Preview

Track: Good  Weather: Fine

Mr Brightside is the one to beat. Absolute star who will be hard to beat again. Pride Of Jenni beat Mr Brightside last start and looks well placed here against the lot. Atishu has the class and can give this a shake while Cascadian can be hard to catch but will be sure to be hitting the line.

Australian Cup 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Mr Brightside (1)

A lot of talk about the ride on him last start but beaten fair and square. Good hope of turning the tables on Pride Of Jenni if he can settle closer and use barrier to advantage. Even race.

2. Cascadian (8)

Won this race last year. Racing well and has been hitting the line hard. Tricky draw and due for a win but never far away. Place chance.

3. Vow And Declare (9)

Can’t have.

4. Dom To Shoot (6)

Prefer others.

5. Young Werther (3)

Can’t have.

6. Esti Feny (4)

Leaning to others.

7. Pride Of Jenni (7)

Beat Mr Brightside last start and a lot to like about the win. Query if that standard can be met again after running a career peak but very hard to beat again.

8. Atishu (5)

Slightly unders here. Good win last start but harder in this. Expected it to be over $10.00.

9. Legarto (2)

Racing well and goes in the mix.
