2010 Summer Cup Early Race Preview

November 16th, 2010

The 2010 Summer Cup will be conducted at the Royal Randwick Racecourse on Boxing Day, Sunday December 26 as the second Group race feature of the summer racing season in Sydney.

The $125,000 Group 3 Summer Cup (2400m) is an excellent end-of-year race to enjoy a punt on as the event always attracts a field of classy stayers.

For punters looking at an early Summer Cup betting guide, prior lead-up races horses may come via that are worth keeping an eye on include the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) at Randwick the week before and the Listed Christmas Cup (2400m) at Rosehill on December 11.

Last year’s Summer Cup third placegetter Rockwood came via a run in the Villiers Stakes, while the Christmas Cup has also served as a good Summer Cup indicator in recent years.

Nominations for the 2010 Summer Cup will be taken on Monday December 20, followed by the release of the final field of acceptors on Thursday December 23.
