Can't believe the WA Cup (3200m) is being replaced by a 66+ handicap over 3100m at Albany which is a qualifier for a $304,000 race (the Jericho Cup) at Warrnambool over 4600m.

This years WA Cup won by Spiritual Warrior was an 89+ listed race.  The year before Capo D'Oro beat Come Play With Me. 

The argument against distance races in Perth has always been the lack of stayers. How many do they think can run 4600m? I can't see too many taking that invitation up.


This is not a shot at Albany. I'm all for having feature races there and the tie in with the Anzac celebrations is a good initiative. 

This year's Jericho Cup was won by Ablaze carrying 70kg.
