Angel Of Mercy has taken out the 2014 Lord Mayor’s Cup in a thrilling victory.
Angel Of Mercy, well supported by punters prior to the race, ran a very hard race to finish ahead of Wistful, also a clear choice for punters. Cameo came in a very tidy third.
The race experienced quite considerable betting volumes as Queensland locals get right into the swing of the 2014 Brisbane Racing Carnival. The Lord Mayor’s Cup was race 4 on a race card filled with some very exciting events, including the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) and the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m).
The weather at Doomben has been fantastic for the Doomben 10,000 Day, with barely a cloud in the sky. This is a good sign for punters, as it allows horses to run to their full potential and make picking winners somewhat easier.
