Hawk’s Saturday Selections – BTC Cup Day

May 11, 2013

Today sees Group 1 racing from Brisbane and Adelaide, with my focus today on the Brisbane card as the Winter Carnival gets underway.

The last two years, Black Caviar has run on this day.

Two years ago, she had another stirring battle with Hay List, prevailing around the tight Doomben circuit, while last year saw her coast to the line in The Goodwood, her last test before her Royal Ascot trip.

This year, the BTC Cup meeting was moved to Eagle Farm from Doomben in an attempt to lure her back to Brisbane, only for retirement to scuttle those plans.

Still, it is a competitive field for this year’s race.

Here are my selections at Eagle Farm, as well as my selections for The Goodwood at Morphettville:
