Always nice to have a runner in the time honoured $500,000 Group 2 Perth Cup. Even better when you have a runner that is a genuine chance.
Cappo D’Oro will represent Oakland Park. He has had a very good campaign leading into the Cup, including winning the Listed Towton Stakes and being placed in the Group 3 R.J. Peters, and a last start third in the Listed ATA Stakes beaten 1.5 lengths.
Busy One will make his debut Saturday at Ascot in the 2YO Open Handicap over 1000 metres. By our exciting freshman sire Safeguard out of the Oakland Park bred and raced Busimiss (Key Business) who was a two-time metropolitan 2YO winner.
In Love with Paris, by resident stallion Rogano will line up in the $100,000 Listed Summer Scorcher over 1000 metres. It is a red-hot field so will need to be at his best. He goes into the race off a last start fourth beaten 1.8 lengths.
