MUNCE CHASING HOMETOWN CUP WIN AT CASINO

May 24, 2019

Trainer Chris Munce will be chasing a hometown Cup win when CONSTANTINE lines up in today's feature Beef Week Cup at Casino (1400m).

The Casino-born Munce will take a trip down memory lane when he returns to his hometown with CONSTANTINE and SHANAHAN, who resumes in the 2YO Handicap (1200m).

Munce has already tasted feature Cups success over the border, having won last year's Grafton Cup with stayer FIRST CRUSH.

Experienced jockey Scott Galloway takes the ride on both Munce-trained runners today.

Race 1 - 11:40AM P & K SOLICITORS 2YO HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
ColoursNo. / Horse Name / BarrierJockeyWeight
3. Shanahan (3)Scott Galloway      56kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "It’s not an overly strong race apart from the top two and SHANAHAN is fit enough to go to the races to kick off his preparation. He’s had a couple of nice trials and I’d expect him to show some good speed from the gate. The only query is the 1200m first-up with the uphill run home at Casino but he’s had plenty of work to go to the races and he’s in the race with a great chance."

Race 8 - 3:55PM CASINO RSM CLUB BEEF WEEK CUP (1400 METRES)
ColoursNo. / Horse Name / BarrierJockeyWeight
11. Constantine (6)Scott Galloway       54kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "He’s got no weight on his back and you’d expect them to go pretty hard up front. Scott Galloway rides and I’d love him to be able to get to the outside and give him plenty of daylight to gallop as I think that’s what he appreciates the most. With the right sort of run, he can win."
