Albury Gold Cup Preview & Final Field

March 26th, 2010

Each year the Albury Racing Club gears up to host its most prolific horse race of the year, the Albury Gold Cup (2000m), and the exciting race is kicking off at around 4.20pm today!

With a prize purse of $170,000, the 2010 Albury Gold Cup headlines the highly anticipated Commercial Club Albury Gold Cup Day, and will see 15 starters this afternoon.

With three horses to have been scratched from the original line up, the David Hayes-trained Growl could be the strongest contender. Having won the Group 3 Hobart Cup (2200m) in February, the gelding lacked form in the more recent Australasian Cup (2000), but is always strong over the staying distance.

The David Hayes-trained Growl could be the strongest contender.

Mr Sunset, trained by Brett Cavanough, is another strong contender having place in all of his last three starts.

Bearing the brunt of the outside barrier, Even Adam, trained by Wayne Nichols has placed in two of his last three run outs. However the gelding has not proved himself over the longer distance, and will most likely struggle with the disadvantages associated with the outside barrier.

There are nine fantastic races taking place today at the Albury Racecourse, with the Albury Gold Cup the seventh of the day, and to check out the latest odds on the events just head to Ladbrokes.com.au now!
