QUEENSLAND sensation Leap To Fame has opened a short-priced favourite to win Saturday night’s Decron Cranbourne Gold Cup.
Last weekend’s A G Hunter Cup champion has remained in Victoria for another run before his Miracle Mile campaign in Sydney and will tackle the $100,000 Group Two from barrier 10.
The TAB opened Grant Dixon’s star pacer as a $1.20 chance to secure win 33 from 43 starts.
Some of last weekend’s beaten brigade – Cya Art (five), Max Delight (six) and Kanena Provlima (seven) – will face the millionaire again, while Kyle Marshall’s Kiwi import Bach is set for his first Australian start from gate four.
Kanena Provlima’s stablemate Petes Said So draws for a shot at the early lead in barrier three, while local trainer Scott Ewen is chasing another Cup success with his veteran campaigner Bulletproof Boy from inside the second row.
Scratched from last Saturday night’s Great Southern Star, Im Ready Jet will run favourite in the Bruce Skeggs Memorial Cranbourne Trotters’ Cup.
The powerful partnership of Anton Golino and Nathan Jack will team up with the Group One-winning mare, which was installed a $1.65 TAB favourite.
Im Ready Jet has a wide front row barrier of seven, with Mufasa Metro (eight), Kyvalley Hotspur (six) and Aldebaran Dino (nine) among the key fancies in the market.
