Brisbane Ruled Out For Benzini

Friday, 1st May 2015

A Brisbane Cup campaign for talented Hunterville stayer Benzini (Tale of the Cat-Paris Perfume, by Kurofune) has been ruled out through injury, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Adrian and Harry Bull-trained Benzini was rested after finishing sixth as second favourite in March's Gr1 Auckland Cup (3200m) following successive wins in the Wairarapa Cup (2050m) at Tauherenikau, the Listed Kaimai Stakes (2000m) at Matamata and the Nathans Memorial (2200m) at Ellerslie. He began his Brisbane build-up with a third placing in a trial at Wanganui at the beginning of April but injury ruled him out of a planned start in last Monday's Anzac 1600 at Awapuni. Harry Bull confirmed the campaign was over on Wednesday when he tweeted: "Benzini to spell with wrenched joint, be back for spring time".
