Summer Cup Tips - Aloisia the one to beat in Sydney

  • Aloisia looks hard to beat in the Group 3 Summer Cup
Aloisia can return to the winners' stall.

Chris Waller has six of the 12 runners engaged in the 2018 Group 3 Summer Cup (2000m) but it’s the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Aloisia that looks very hard to beat. 

Since Victorian racing has banned the use of Regu-Mate in the state, some mares have been underperforming, none more than Aloisia. The four-year-old mare has struggled to recapture the form that saw her win the Group 1  Thousand Guineas and earn favouritsm for the VRC Oaks. 

She ran a nice third behind Shumookh and Invincibella in the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) over the Spring but then failed in her next two starts. Maher & Eustace gave her a five-week freshen up and she returned in Sydney, running in the Group 2 Villiers (1600m). 

The warm favourite Sky Boy looked like he was going to win easily at the furlong before Aloisia charged home late, making things very interesting over the final 50m. That run indicates that the step-up from a mile to 2000m will suit her perfectly. 

Her last run over 2000m in Sydney was a close-up third in the Group 1 Vinery Stakes behind Hiyaam and Unforgotten. She maps worse than midfield from barrier eight and if horses can swoop home, she looks very hard to beat. 

Following that Villiers form, the third-placed My Nordic Hero looks to be a danger from the Chris Waller yard, along with the Matthew Smith-trained Fierce Impact.
