2010 JRA Cup Won by Caulfield Cup Hopeful Precedence

September 27th, 2010

Bart Cummings’ Precedence scored a comfortable victory at Moonee Valley on Friday night, beating home a field full of fellow Caulfield Cup hopefuls in the $200,000 Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m).

Zabeel gelding Precedence ($3.20F), ridden patiently by star hoop Blake Shinn, held back early but burst to the front in the later stages to snare victory over Rainbow Styling ($12) with Linton ($3.60) in third.

JRA Cup winner Precedence is now at $8 to win the Caulfield Cup through Ladbrokes.com.au

Five-year-old Precedence has now won five of their 21 career starts for $437,970 in prize money and after the win has firmed into the $8 second favourite to win the 2010 Caulfield Cup on October 16.

Cummings awaits the VRC’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter’s weight penalty for Precedence for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups, as Precedence is still down in equal 42nd for the Caulfield Cup ballot order with just 50.5kg currently.

Other Moonee Valley race results from Friday’s twilight meeting include Hay List’s win in the marquee race, the Group 1 Manikato Stakes, and Hollowlea claiming victory in the Group 2 Stutt Stakes.
