There are some interesting conversations happening around Saturday night’s $67,000 CHS Group Horsham Cup. Throw in a few interesting theories and one or two wild ideas and one thing is a certainty; this is going to be a race to watch…
It’s certainly a strong field, where the form and character of each dog throws up some interesting possibilities. High on the list of ‘ones to watch’ is Nervous An Weird, who has risen to $3.60 second favouritism.
Cranbourne South trainer Andrew Paraskevas said the red box draw gives him plenty of reasons to be cheerful.
Andrew spoke to GRV’s Simone Fisher about Nervous An Weird’s Horsham Cup chances.
“His cup heat was his very first run over the 485 (metres) and he came out with great early pace. With his last three starts he has begun really well so the red’s going to be a massive advantage.”
“Hopefully he can begin with them and hold his spot against strong dogs like Barooga Brett and Orson Allen (and) the red box is going to give him every opportunity to put himself in the race.”
The Group 2 Horsham Cup offers $47,000 to the winner, supported by four feature races and a free entertainment for what’s expected to be a good crowd. Gates open at 6pm, with the Horsham Cup scheduled for 9.43pm.
