Saturdays Belmont Park winner Amelia’s Dancer will be aimed at the $100,000 Focus Minerals Coolgardie Cup (1600m) and the $110,000 Goldline Distributors Boulder Cup (1760 m) after his convincing win with 60kg last Saturday.
Co trainer Dion Luciani revealed post-race that the Round was always going to be high on his agenda if the gelding displayed his true form.
“The early features in Kalgoorlie look to be right up his ally. That was a super win today and that should do him before the Coolgardie Cup.”
Jason Miller ruled out Fair Hunter after his brilliant win over 2000 Metres but leading trainer Neville Parnham reported that runner up Tennessey could well go to Kalgoorlie for the $150,000 XXXX Gold Kalgoorlie Cup and that Smart Twister would be a definite starter.
Smart sprinter Cavallo Pazzo could not have been more impressive after his easy win in the Listed Belmont Newmarket but former “Boulder Boy” and trainer Ted Martinovich said after the win it would depend on the handicapper if Cavallo Pazzo was to go to Kalgoorlie for the $130,000 Hannan’s Handicap (1400m).
“We still have races like the Goodwood Sprint and also the Farnley Stakes, so if he was to win both of those races we could be weighted out of the Hannan’s. We will wait and see what happens in the coming weeks.” Martinovch concluded
