|Werribee Cup Day
|Werribee Racing Club – 2-10 Bulban Rd, Werribee VIC 3030
|Sunday, December 10, 2023
Werribee Racing Club will host its marquee meeting this Sunday afternoon, where the $150,000 Cup will headline the eight-race card. Although the track is rated a Good 4, with a lot of rain forecast on Saturday, we expect the track to start in the Soft range come raceday. The rail will be in the True position, with the opening race scheduled to jump at 1:25pm AEDT.
Werribee Cup Tip: Keats
Coming off a strong third-place finish in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes at Caulfield last Saturday, the Gavin Bedggood-trained Keats will drop back sharply in grade to run in the Werribee Cup on Sunday. This seven-year-old gelding led the field in the Eclipse but was run over by Just Folk and Danish Fortune in the final 100m of the race. Now that this son of Galileo is third-up and dropping back in distance, we expect him to bounce and lead from barrier five. If Linda Meech can get a mid-race breather and then ramp the tempo up before the home turn, Keats should run away with the feature.
Race 7 – #8 Keats (6)
7yo Gelding | T: Gavin Bedggood | J: Linda Meech (58kg)

Best Bet at Werribee: Belnera
Belnera from the Michael Kent stable will step out for her first start as a three-year-old, seeking to break her maiden at her third career start. On debut, this daughter of So You Think was sent around in the Listed Dequetteville Stakes when she was far from disgraced and finished fifth. In her only other race start, this filly was well beaten in a Fillies Handicap race at Sandown; however, she finished 2.5 lengths of Couer Volante, which reads well after her Group victories this spring. With the benefit of an impressive performance in an 800m jumpout at Cranbourne on November 27, Belnera appears ready to kick off her preparation in style with a maiden win.
Race 2 – #2 Belnera (9)
3yo Filly | T: Michael Kent | J: Jye McNeil (56.5kg)
+150 with Picklebet
Next Best at Werribee: Humming
Humming will return from a 10-week freshen in a Benchmark 64 Handicap, seeking her second win at start four. The Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained mare has been given one quiet trial at Cranbourne in readiness for her first-up start but brings decent form through her last race start. This daughter of I Am Invincible was made to work from a wide barrier at Moe on September 28, and after leading for most of the race, she began to weaken in the final 100m to finish third. With the other speed influences drawn outside of her, Humming can find the rail in front and lead every step of the way.
Race 6 – #14 Humming (9)
4yo Mare | T: Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr | J: Jordan Childs (57kg)
