Good track for Cup day at Ellerslie

8:02 am on 7 March 2012

A good track should ensure a capacity field of 18 runners for this afternoon's $500,000 Auckland galloping Cup at Ellerslie.

In the early market only three horses are at single figure odds, last year's winner Titch, the rising Matamata star Single Minded, already the winner of the City of Auckland and Avondale Cups this year, and the Taranaki mare Shez Sinsational, to be ridden by the champion jockey James McDonald.

They jump in the 3,200 metre race at 5.52.
