Premier’s Cup Winner Tabulate on Track for Brisbane Cup

June 1st, 2010

Robert Heathcote’s in-form five-year-old Tabulate ran a sensational Brisbane Cup prep on Saturday when he took out the $125,000 Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2200m) in a gripping finish at Doomben.

Tabulate ($8.50) defeated Albertinelli ($21) right on the finishing line, the margin a mere short-half-head. The blanket finish saw Larry’s Never Late ($6.50) come in third a further short neck away, while early favourite Hissing Sid ($4) was the same length away for fourth.

Heathcote will now send Honours List gelding Tabluate onto the $300,000 Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) at Eagle Farm in just under a fortnight, as the local trainer hopes for his maiden Brisbane Cup win.

The excitement of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival moves to Eagle Farm this Saturday when the premier Queensland fillies’ race, the $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) takes place.
