The Aussie Clothing Down Under Epic – 25th June 2016 – Sydney Harbour Racecourse


The Aussie Clothing Down Under Epic

The Champ is Here

The top three finishers in last season’s Diamond Cup clash again in the S35 renewal of The Aussie Clothing Down Under Epic Cup at Sydney Harbour Racecourse on Saturday. On recent form there is little to choose between Triple Crown Champion Relaunch, Addie Over Magoo and Voodoo Child. And then there is Greatest Stable Ever ’s smart Great-D Black Lion, Magoo Fine Equine’s Roxanne Ritchi and Chasing Lancelot from the cassie yard, also to consider.

There are many variables at play in what should be a cracker of a contest.

1. Relaunch

5yo stallion from Angel’s Flight, Career earnings: $5,426,900
Overall rating: Admirable(59) – Competitive

Stable comments: – “Relaunch has done everything I’ve ask of him and come into the race ready to go. Hopefully his performance can exceed that this weekend”

2. Under It Me Luv

5yo stallion from Dopey Donkeys Digs, Career earnings: $661,000
Overall rating: Admirable(57) – Natural champion

Stable comments: – “Under It Me Luv has a very slim chance of finishing in the top 5. Unfortunately despite having the Natural Champion style he is far from ‘Champion’ material. Relaunch seems to be the obvious winner, if anyone even comes close to causing an upset I’d be very very surprised”

3. Voodoo Child

5yo stallion from Bristol Turks, Career earnings: $2,619,037
Overall rating: Admirable(59) – Natural champion

Stable comments: – “Voodoo Child is the perennial runner-up, close but no-cigar. He’s been chasing Relaunch throughout his career and I can’t see anything changing in this race to be honest. I think Voodoo will have enough to last the distance and should finish in the money but can’t see anybody catching Relaunch in this one.”

4. Addie Over Magoo

5yo mare from crowsrock, Career earnings: $2,426,600
Overall rating: Admirable(56) – Natural champion

Stable comments: – “Consistent runner but still looking for that big win. Good heat run with 2nd fastest time and the 2,800m should suit. Got real close to Relaunch in there last cup final race so hoping for a similar run here.”

5. Roxanne Ritchi

5yo mare from Magoo’s Fine Equine, Career earnings: $978,071
Overall rating: Admirable(59) – Unpredictable

Stable comments: – “

6. Great-D Black Lion

5yo stallion from Greatest Stable Ever, Career earnings: $827,270
Overall rating: Admirable(59)

Stable comments: – “

7. Cavalry Preview

5yo mare from riding unite, Career earnings: $80,000
Overall rating: Miserable(14)

Stable comments: – “

8. Chasing Lancelot

5yo mare from cassie, Career earnings: $1,669,293
Overall rating: Admirable(56) – Unpredictable

Stable comments: – “Love all epic cups but usually only an also ran. My horse ran well to qualify and would need a good track to show her best. Would be nice to win this one Saturday because a world trophy has never arrived at Cassie. My prediction 3rd behind the Triple Crown winner and Addie Over Magoo. Fingers crossed for the Aussie Epic.”
