Looking forward to Mornington Cup Day

Feb 11, 2014

Mornington Cup Day is here, and this year Pat has a strong hand in the "Race That Stops A Location".  It will be a big day for Epsom Lodge with 3 in the Mornington Cup and 2 in supporting races.

First of the day will be Sir DeLago, in race 1. He is kicking of his current campaign today, and while he is most likely to find this race too short, he will certainly have a red hot go.

Next up is Elle Excites in the Orbit Fitness Hcp over 1200m. She is a strong filly who has lots of potential, and if she gets away from the gates cleanly then she is definitely a likely threat.

In the Big Race we have Altonio, Angola and last year's runner-up Durnford.  Altonio showed last Friday at Moonee Valley that he has earned his place in the field, and Pat has had this race in mind for Angola for some time.  Durnford does some of his best work at Mornington, and it would be no surprise to see him fighting out the finish again.

I am not a betting lady, but I may have a trifecta in the Cup. If I remember that is!!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL and have a great day. xxx
