Can Arbeitsam Claim Four Straight In Wyong Cup?

Arebeitsam will strive for his fourth successive win and his first attempt over the 2100m in this Friday’s $160,000 Listed Wyong Gold Cup. The Waterhouse/Bott trained gelding has been in super form putting together a trifecta of wins in his most recent starts, two at Rosehill Gardens and the third at Hawkesbury.

While untried over the distance, his strong win at 1800m at Rosehill on August 12 has the stable convinced he could make the step up. Stable foreman Neil Paine confirmed on Sunday the Snitzel gelding would be a likely runner in the Cup.

“He’ll be nominated and all being well should be in the field,” Paine said. “He’s fit and in-form and I don’t think the distance will be a problem.”

The 2100m won’t be an issue for the other Waterhouse nomination Dee I Cee. The six-year-old resumed from a lengthy spell with a win in the Listed Premiers Cup over the 1900m at Rosehill on Saturday.

He was runner-up in last year’s Newcastle Cup and following Saturday’s win Adrian Bott indicated he would likely follow a similar path, via the Wyong Cup and on to the Metropolitan.

It has been five years since Gai Waterhouse last tasted success in the Wyong Cup with Julienas winning in 2012. But the stable won’t have it all their way come Friday with a strong list of 13 nominations.

Kris Lees is vying for back-to-back Cups with two likely runners, Admiral Jello and Singing. The Waller stable will be hoping to continue their dominant run in the race with early Metropolitan favourite Sayed.

The promising stayer could give Chris Waller his sixth Cup since 2010. He was narrowly beaten over 2400m at Rosehill on August 19 and was successful in his previous start with a dominant five length win over the same distance at Randwick on August 5.

Allergic, from the Godolphin stable, would be another with a big chance, with consistent staying form around the 2100m distance. Allan Kehoe with Get On The Grange, third in last year’s Wyong Cup and Damien Lane with recent Taree Cup winner Pirate Ben will represent the local trainers.

The $125,000 Listed Mona Lisa Stakes has attracted 16 top quality nominations.
