AN ACT of God is the only phenomenon capable of ending Cash N Flow’s winning streak at Club Menangle on Saturday night.
That’s the opinion of trainer Craig Cross who “simply can’t see” the son of Mach Three being beaten.
Dominating open class events around the 1400-metre circuit in recent months, Cash N Flow is aiming for his 10th consecutive victory on the weekend.
Cash N Flow’s sequence began with his 1:49.8 triumph at the world class venue on March 14.
Since then the seven-year-old has lowered his best mark to 1:49.2, with his slowest win coming in 1:50.6.
Cash N Flow recorded his quickest time during his latest run on July 25.
On each occasion the gelding came from the outside of the front row – a draw he faces again.
“He is in great shape,” Cross said. “He feels enormous.
“The field is pretty much the same as what he has been racing against so I simply can’t see him being beaten.
“Something would have to go badly against him for him to lose.”
With an average winning margin of 7.3 metres, the closest Cash N Flow has come to defeat was a neck win over his stablemate Replaced Eye on May 30.
A model of consistency, with a win and four seconds from his last five starts, Replaced Eye is again among Cash N Flow’s rivals.
Replaced Eye has drawn barrier 10 but slots into nine with the removal of the emergency.
Cash N Flow and Replaced Eye are two of seven Cross-trained runners in the field of 10.
“Replaced Eye is racing in great form, he’s just been finding Cash N Flow and King Of Swing too good,” Cross said. “If there is to be a main danger to Cash N Flow it is Replaced Eye.”
