FAVOURITES IN DOUBT FOR GROUP 1 SPRINT

The two favourites for the Group 1 Kingsford Smith Cup on Saturday at Eagle Farm are in doubt for the race after presenting with lameness during a routine vets examination in the lead up to the race

KIngsford Smith Cup Favourites In Doubt

South Australian Sprint Star Gytrash and fellow Group 1 winner Savatiano for the Godolphin stable are the pair in question with both needing to pass a further vets examination on Friday before being cleared to run.

If fit to run on Saturday the pair will line up against a strong field to contest the $700,000 weight for age spring over 1300m with further Group 1 success the target.

At the moment Savatiano has been heavily backed to win the race for the Godolphin team moving into a clear $3.90 favourite to win the race. 

Gytrash is on the second line of betting having been able to fly up to Queensland as scheduled after his initial plans had been thrown into chaos with the latest change to Covid restrictions. The South Australian currently sits as $4.60 second favourite.

A statement released by the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission read: “An examination of Kingsford-Smith Cup runners found Gytrash to be exhibiting lameness in the near-foreleg, Savatiano was exhibiting mild lameness in the off-foreleg and Savatoxl was mildly lame in the near-fore leg.”

Savatoxl is another one on the way up from South Australian having won the Group 1 Goodwood last time out and must also pass a further vets exam to be cleared to run on Saturday.

Savatoxl won that day with an impressive front running display however the finish of Gytrash was notable with the 5 year old steaming home late to grab third.
