David Jones Cup Contenders
FENWAY and STRATUM STAR have both won at the highest level and are serious contenders. The latter is a $3.50 favourite with Bookmaker.com.au but also the top weight at 59kg. Jockey Mark Zahra will be hoping to give the Darren Weir trained horse the gun run from barrier two. As for FENWAY ($4.40) need we remind you she has a Group one win over this distance against FIRST SEAL. The Mare may be too good for her opposition here if on top form. THUNDER LADY is a $15 hopeful but boasts a win over FENWAY over 2000 metres. She’s not finished outside the top 3 from 3 goes at the distance.
The Chris Waller trained SADLER’s LAKE drops down in class after finishing ninth in the Epsom Handicap at the start of the month. The four year old is among the favourites despite having its first run at Caulfield. The gelding is $4.60 to get its sixth win from 12 career starts. DIBAYANI ($6) hasn’t been too far away at the elite level and could claim them all in this. The six year old will enjoy the distance and punters who are on him could enjoy a late charge down the straight. PUCCINI has done nothing of late but is into $31 having opened at $61.
The David Jones Cup is scheduled for 3.45pm AEDT.
