Innovation Favoured For Gr3 Winter Cup
Dual stakes winning NZ mare Innovation (Keeper-Miss Grosvenor, by Grosvenor) is the current pre-post favourite for tomorrow's $100,000 Gr3 Winter Cup (1600m) at Riccarton. The 5YO, who has performed consistently this campaign with a win in the Listed JC Challenge Stakes and placings in the Listed JC Anzac Handicap & Listed Rangitikei Gold Cup, is presently $6.50 with NZ Tab, reflecting the open nature of the race. In a field of 21, Innovation will be opposed, among others, by last year's winner Art Beat, topweight I Am Sam, stakes winners Sacha & Khemosabi, the stakes-placed Negotiate, and emerging gallopers Authentic Paddy & Perfect Start.
