January Cup 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Naval College will take beating in this field. Comes up with a gun draw and looks hard to hold out against this lot. Luncies can be hard to catch but is capable of taking out a race of this depth. Baby Rider has been around the mark this prep and comes up with a very winnable weight. Touristic will need luck from out there but is well placed against this lot while Torrens can bob up at odds.

January Cup 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Luncies (1)

Hard runner to catch but brings in some solid form. A query of where he gets to from barrier 1 but has plenty of class and ability. This race is well within reach.

2. Dark Destroyer (11)

Due for another win. Will be hitting the line and isn’t hopeless in this.

3. Great House (13)

Can’t have.

4. Torrens (7)

Can bob up at odds but prefer him on his track of choice. One box ticked with the brilliant record Duggan has aboard him and she steers here. Can win.

5. Baby Rider (3)

Going well this prep and maps for a good run of things. Consistent in the past few starts and capable of figuring in this.

6. Lord Admore (12)

Can’t have.

7. Regal Lion (2)

Prefer others.

8. Parry Sound (6)

Can’t have.

9. Touristic (8)

Maps a little tricky but has been around the mark a few starts this prep and looks primed for a win. Goes close in this field.

10. Ziyazan (10)

Good effort last start despite doing a bit wrong. If it can settle better and get control of the race then he can win. Weighted kindly in thus.

11. Otyrar (5)

Can’t have.

12. Naval College (4)

Good win and ride last start. Similar set up here and drops weight for the rise in grade. Clear horse to beat.

13. Rebel Rama (9)

Prefer others.
