Just Two Chances Remain To Qualify For Inverell's Battlers Cup

Barraba next Saturday (22nd September) and Bundara (29th September) the following week provide two of the final chances for trainers to qualify horses for Inverell’s version of the “one day championships” the $20,000 Battlers Cup in November.

Only runners at the one day club meetings at Deepwater, Glen Innes, Bingara, Narrabri, Warialda, Mungindi, Barraba, Bundara and Tabulam are eligible to run in the $20,000 Battlers Cup, run as a BM 58 Handicap over 1400 metres.

The inaugural Battlers Cup attracted great interest and betting turnover when run at the club's  New Year’s Day Cup meeting and has now been moved to be a feature on the Inverell Sky 2 meeting on 24 November with added prizemoney.

Both Barraba and Bingara programs have the traditional open Cup over 1400 metres with sprint and distance low benchmark races which should enable horses at various stages of their preparations to run and then be set for the 1400 trip on the spacious Inverell track in November.

The ‘last chance saloon” for qualifying is Tabulam’s iconic meeting on the banks of the Clarence River in November.

Inverell Jockey Club hopes the staging of the Battlers Cup will give the horses that support the one day club circuit in the north a chance to compete for TAB prizemoney against other “one day standard” horses.
