26 Mar 2018

Manion Cup winner Master Of Arts (Mastercraftsman x Petit Verdot) has been given a 1.5kg penalty for the Sydney Cup, taking him to 51.5kg for the Group One staying feature.

Master Of Arts was one of three winners for Victoria's premier trainer Darren Weir at Rosehill on Saturday, the highlight Gailo Chop's Group One win in the Ranvet Stakes.

Almandin, the 2016 Melbourne Cup winner, Aloft and Alward are the $8 equal favourites for the Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick on April 14 with Master Of Arts firming to $15. 

Master of Arts was purchased by Waratah Thoroughbreds for $110,000 from Trelawney Stud's 2013 Inglis Easter Sale draft.
