Mornington Cup Day 2020 Racing Tips - Will Diamond Effort make it a hat-trick of wins?

Mornington hosts its cup day this Saturday with a great card of racing in the offing.

Our best of the card comes up in the Hareeba Stakes while an ex-Kiwi looks mighty hard to beat second-up.

Mornington Cup Day Favourite

Race 7 No. 14 Just Benjamin

I am sticking with this bloke after he was luckless last-start against a heavy track bias.

With things being equal in that race I think he could have finished a lot closer. He now draws barrier four which look idea around Mornington, where I can see him getting the box seat in the run.

He now gets his chance to turn the tables on favourite Aktau, and Just Benjamin should be saluting.

Mornington Cup Day Roughie

Race 3 No. 3 Well Sprung

He has jumped out well in preparation for this race and looks well over the odds at a track that he loves.

He has been a third place getter in the Hareeba Stakes here and has also won at that track, one of his very few wins.

He is most definitely a hard one to catch, but he does look to have a few more ticks than usual coming into this race, so at the double figure odds, a small play his was could be a good one.

Mornington Cup Day Best Bet

Race 8 No. 15 Diamond Effort

She looks to have come back a treat this preparation after running behind Group One winner Pippie.

What I loved about last start was that she improved from that first-up demolition job and did it on top of the ground so we know she is at her peak condition.

She is not well suited at the weights considering she is giving 10 rating points to horses that have just a half kilo more in weight than her, but she is on an upwards trajectory which is promising.

This field is quite strong on paper, but her main rivals are still building into their campaigns, but she is a mare that is better kept fresh with a gap between runs as we saw last start.

It is a three week break leading into this race so it does look a great time to earn some black type with her.

Mornington Cup Day Next Best Bet

Race 6 No. 8 Chuck A Luck

This horse has Catalyst form and New Zealand Derby form, coming across from New Zealand to now be stabled with Busuttin and Young.

His first-up run in Australia was solid over 1400m, finishing third on a soft seven to a deadset wet tracker in Falls.

He will take great improvement from that performance and be all the better second-up here.

He settles forward so we know that no matter how Mornington plays, he will make his own luck, and drawing barrier four helps him do this.

This field is looking for more ground, but he has that x-factor to beat them over a mile.
