Descarado Stakes Cup Claims with 2010 Hill Stakes Win

September 20th, 2010

Four-year-old Descarado, trained by Gai Waterhouse, staked its claims for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups this spring with a dominant win in the $175,000 Group 2 Hill Stakes (1900m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

Descarado is currently at a very juicy quote of $21 to win the Caulfield Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au!

Charging to the lead in the early stages, Descarado ($5.50) then coasted to victory outclassing the $2.90 favourite Triple Honour to win the 2010 Hill Stakes by a length with the Peter Snowden-trained Purple ($3.70) finishing two and a half lengths further away in third.

Waterhouse will now press on to the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) on October 9 with Descarado attempting to qualify the High Chaparral gelding for the 2010 Caulfield Cup.

Descarado is currently at $21 in the Caulfield Cup markets at Sportsbet and is also a long-shot chance at $41 for the 2010 Melbourne Cup at Flemington on Tuesday November 2.

To back the 2010 Hill Stakes winner at their next start the only place to go is Ladbrokes.com.au, who guarantee to give you a better price than the TAB!
