Regular Rivals To Settle The Score In Gundagai Cup

For the third time in four weeks, Pittsburgh and Nagging will strive to gain the edge in Sunday’s Gundagai Cup (1800m).

The duo have filled the quinella the only two times they have met – Nagging gaining the verdict in the Corowa Cup as a $100 chance and the result reversed in the feature mile on the first day of the Albury Cup carnival.

They have each raced once since, Nagging finishing last in Sydney and Pittsburgh being well accounted for in the Albury Cup.

Neither of their trainers are game to declare bragging rights and agree the result may come down to luck in running on a tighter turning track than what they have been racing.

“I’m really happy with my guy and he is well enough weighted on 58 kilograms to run a big race,” Pittsburgh’s trainer Daniel McCarthy.

The Wangaratta based conditioner has an impressive strike-rate when he ventures into the region and his representative is likely to start favourite partly for tat reason.

Nagging has struck form and her trainer Mark Gee feels it would be best to ignore her last start failure.

“She can bounce back. Her form has been solid so I’m expecting this class to be more suitable,” he said.

Bank On Henry is the knockout runner with a form line of 2-1-3-4 this campaign.

Training combination Barbara Joseph and Paul Jones have previously won the Gundagai Cup and have Bank On Henry primed for a big run.

The six-year-old finished fourth behind Pittsburgh and Nagging last stat beaten two and a half lengths and can easily reverse that result.

Visitor Hirokin throws a different dimension into the Cup with the form of his rivals exposed but he has central districts form which may prove superior.

The winner of the Bathurst Cup in February has been freshened since his last start failure in the Armidale Cup.

Supply Money also brings the form line from the Albury Mile into the race finishing third, while prior to that he was a solid fifth in the Wagga heat of the Country Championships.

The winner of the Gundagai Cup gains ballot exemption for the Wagga Gold Cup next month.
