2014 Group Three Mandurah Cup Final Preview

Tonight is Mandurah’s night of nights, with the 2014 Group Three Mandurah Cup taking centre stage. Star Recall was dominant in her heat performance last week, running half a length outside the track record. She has cemented favouritism despite jumping from box five. If trainer Linda Britton were to take out the Group event this year with one of her four chasers it will be her eighth win in the event. She has had the last two winners in Te Amo and Saving Bundles.

Eyes wont just be on WA’s best chaser Star Recall, Christine Robartson’s Last Day showcased some eye-catching talent from box eight last week to win his heat.

The cup is the seventh event on the card and will jump at 8.32pm tonight. It will only take a matter of seconds for the cup winner to be named and connections presented with the $25,000 prize.

Prices are the current Centrebet fixed odds, where you can get $200 in free bets.

Comment: Jason Stuart (Trainer) – “He will be racing for second place, Star Recall has it in the bag. Box one will help but he can be hit and miss out of the boxes. I just hope that he sticks to the trails because he can push wide. Star Recall is a superior race dog, Melbourne quality.”

Comments: Christine Robartson (Trainer) – “Hopefully the one doesn’t interfere out of the boxes so that Last Day can get onto the rails to run second. His owner Larry will be very happy in Queensland if he does run second, winning is a bit out of reach.”

Comments: John Iwanyk (Trainer) – “This is a very tough assignment for him. Star Recall went really good last week running half a length off the track record. Robartson’s Last Day has drawn inside Thunder Rama and he has a lot of pace. Thunder Rama needs to lead to win this race and i don’t see him doing that because he isn’t fast out of the boxes, it’s his acceleration that finds him the lead.”

ARG Comments: Drawing box six this week is an unwelcome change from the red box he won from last week. He will need to get out of the boxes quicker then last weeks 6.09 effort if he has any chance of leading or winning this race.
