Benzini On Trial For Brisbane Cup
Benzini's (Tale of the Cat-Paris Perfume, by Kurofune) performance in Saturday's Gr3 Premier's Cup (2200m) at Doomben will determine the shape of his Queensland winter carnival campaign, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He's in a race at Doomben on Saturday and we'll look at the Brisbane Cup [Gr2] for him, but it depends how he goes at the weekend," owner and co-trainer Adrian Bull said. The stakes-winning and Gr1 placed 6YO, who hasn't raced since finishing runner-up in the Gr3 Canterbury Gold Cup at Riccarton on 23 April, travelled to Brisbane in the care of Bull's son and training partner Harry. Benzini's primary winter target the Gr2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) will be run at Eagle Farm on 11 June.
