The final field has been released for the 2011 Lord Mayor’s Cup at Doomben Racecourse this weekend.
With only a handful of nominations thankfully they have all accepted meaning a field of eight will run in Race 2 this Saturday May 21st.
While the numbers may be low it shapes as an interesting little contest with no exceptional form lines coming into the race.
Firebolt was tipped to do big things last start but faltered and as a result dropped out of the Doomben Cup to run here.
Connections are trying to kick start some winning form on Australian soil and he’ll be advantaged if any rain falls later in the week.
There are actually four New Zealand horses in the field and in such an even race they all have a decent chance.
Atom Cat for Graham Richardson comes into the race off two disappointing runs, Our Lucas for Robert Heathcote looked to be on the improve but didn’t travel too well last start either while St Germaine for John Sargent is the only horse in the field coming into the race off a win.
Out of gate one with 57kgs means this horse is a big player and while Group 3 is a step up this field probably isn’t too much more of an ask then faced previously.
We’ll be able to put together a complete form guide on all the runners later in the weeks so be sure to check back with the Lord Mayor’s Cup probably one of your best chances to find a winner at Doomben this weekend.
