Cup Day fields now out

By Dave Di Somma - Harness News Desk

The highly-favoured Copy That has drawn one for next Tuesday’s  IRT New Zealand Cup.  

While the Ray Green-trained pacer will start off the inside of the front row for the 3200 metre standing start feature, the All Stars pairing of Self Assured and Spankem have drawn 11 and 15 respectively.   Stablemate Ashlez Locaz, who's been recently racing in Australia,  has drawn outside Self Assured at 12. 

Dual Kaikoura Cup winner Classie Brigade, who was third last year, has drawn 18, though will start from 15 after scratchings.  It’s a blow for the horse’s connections because he is a noted quick beginner from a stand.  

2018 New Zealand Cup Champion Thefixer has drawn 3. 

Copy That warmed up for the Cup with a win over Self Assured and Spankem in the Ashburton Flying Stakes.   

As a result of overwhelming entries for the lower-grade rating races on Cup day, the Met club will run a 13th race at 6:45pm
