Famous Seamus 'over the odds'
28 Apr 2017Trainer Noel Mayfield-Smith believes that Famous Seamus (Elusive City x Clinique), who is rated a $51 chance with Crownbet for tomorrow’s Gr.3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m), has a far better chance than the betting suggests.
The eight-year-old graduate of Trelawney Stud won the Gr.1 BTC Cup (1200m) in 2014 and was most recently seen running eighth behind Tivaci in the Gr.1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).
“There’s no way he should be those odds,” said MayfieldSmith. “He might be an eight-year-old, but he is looking better now than he did last preparation when we had some problems. The firmer track on Saturday is definitely going to be an advantage.”
