Copy That draws ace in cup

Highly-favoured Copy That has drawn one for next Tuesday’s New Zealand Cup at Addington.

While the Ray Green-trained pacer will start off the inside of the front row for the 3200m standing-start feature, the All Stars pairing of Self Assured and Spankem have drawn 11 and 15 respectively.

Stablemate Ashlez Locaz, who has been racing in Australia recently, has drawn outside Self Assured at 12.

Dual Kaikoura Cup winner Classie Brigade, who was third last year, has drawn 18, although will start from 15 after scratchings

It is a blow for the horse’s connections because he is a noted quick beginner from a stand.

Thefixer, the 2018 New Zealand Cup winner, has drawn three.

Copy That warmed up for the Cup with a win over Self Assured and Spankem in the Ashburton Flying Stakes last month.

Cruz Bromac won the race last year but is in Australia and has been injured.

As a result of overwhelming entries for the lower-grade rating races on Cup day, the Addington track will run a 13th race at 6:45pm.
