Vic Trainers Hold Adelaide Cup Aces
A trio of Victorian trainers appears to hold the aces for this afternoon's Gr2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) at Morphettville. Robert Hickmott will saddle up the Lloyd Williams-owned top weight Chance To Dance who seems likely to be up with the leading division. Darren Weir, meanwhile, has progressive stayer Master of Arts engaged, and the son of Mastercraftsman looks dour enough to be in the mix. Also well in the market is Stuart Webb's Caulfield-trained Annus Mirabilis who should love the step up to the longer journey. Kawabata has shown a liking for the extended staying trips, and has been specked from $25 into $18.
