Sydney Cup draw

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The draw has been done for the Sydney Cup 3200m. It can be a funny race, and it lines up that way again. You have horses like Niwot, Permit and Older Than Time who have head faultless lead-ups and have to be the major fancies. Add to that one of the best stayers we have seen in Efficient who missed a run controversially the other week and who has had a lot of time of over the last few years. What do we make of him? At his best he would eat them up and spit them out, but he is not at his best. Precendence is simply impossible to catch and with the ‘Bart’ factor will probably be half the price he should be. Drunken Sailor mixes his form horribly but seems to be going as good as ever his last two, and outside of them they all look pretty hard to make a case for…
