Black Caviar Leads 2011 BTC Cup Nominations

April 27th, 2011

Early nominations have been released for the BTC Cup and 38 hopefuls are in the running for the Group 1 sprint over 1200m.

As expected Black Caviar headlines the field with the unbeaten mare tipped to double the attendance at Doomben racecourse on May 14th.

It  will be her first assignment of the Brisbane Winter Carnival and by the looks of the nominations she’ll race against a full field with trainers north of the border not afraid to take race against her on their home turf.

Old favourite Snipers Bullet will return to Brisbane after racing all over Australia and the world.

Fellow warhorse Woorim is also in the mix to drop down to 1200m.

Other big names include the second best performing sprinter in Australia Hay List which will either came straight from Sydney or potentially via Adelaide in the Group 1 Goodwood.

Black Piranha is also there and has a handy record in the winter season and could return towards top form.

The wet track loving Atomic Force is also well up the nominations list on the back of a Group 1 double in Sydney most recently in The Galaxy by a huge margin.

Queenslander Albert The Fat looks comfortable back on his home Brisbane track while All Silent will be looking to find the winning form of old.

We’ll have a better idea of the final field when the BTC Cup field is narrow in the coming weeks so be sure to keep checking back regularly.
