Next Tuesday there will be twenty-four horses in front of the starter, and realistically there are only two chances of taking one of the places on the field.
The $ 400,000 Group 3 Bendigo Cup (2400m) will be played on Wednesday and six horses outside the top 24 in order of participation are accepted.
The Hawkes Racing Zebrowski (25th in the order of participation), Azuro (34th), Haky (37th), Joseph O’Brien’s Import Pondus (39th), Lord Belvedere (42nd) and Saracen Knight (45th) .
Winning the Bendigo Cup opens the door to a weight penalty imposed by Racing Victoria’s handicap team.
A half-kilo penalty for Zebrowski, if successful, would get the gelding to start next Tuesday, while the other potential Bendigo Cup winners would need 1.5 kg or more to get into the top 24.
