alvin crackers says: – One the 4 entries Woodchuckers has in cups this weekend this Top rated 6yo is yet to score a cup win but looks to have the ability to contend .To date has been raced sparingly and only raced the 2 age cups. Scored a nice 2nd to race favourite Dante,s Socrates so is in good form ,one suspects on his day Star Kingdom may well be the biggest threat.

Last race: Crystal Cup Heats (1000m) at River Nile Delta on 19-Dec-15 14:10 (0:58.024)
alvin crackers says : -Been a good buy for Flying Spurs at 4yo winning the amethyst and been a solid performer in her other cup starts with her only hiccup her fast cup start in the Aussie 5yo short .The trainer has a strong reputation for producing consistent performers in cup finals so i suspect this final will again see Flashnflyer in the money

alvin crackers says: – Fog Wiper has in general a league and also stakes so been running in open company for some time .

Fog Wiper has won the The Lesser Lights Shine in good time and takes in good form into his maiden world cup final.

alvin crackers says: – Highly rated foal that has since been only fair in the age cups with a 5th in the Great Sphinx her only top 5 finish in in 9 attempts .

One has to admire the trainer persistence with Night Nurse and with great experience there is no reason why this mare can’t crack it for another finish inside the top 5 .
