Symon Wilde Delighted with Jericho Cup 2020, Count Zero’s Win
VICTORIA, Australia – Symon Wilde shared his positive viewpoints about the Jericho Cup 2020. He remarked that he appreciates the horse racing contest’s concept. Wilde said that the Jericho Cup 2020 is a fantastic match that has genuine meaning to it. The racehorse trainer added that the recently concluded competition is neither a money grab nor a pop-up horse race like some of the other tilts are. Wilde described the Jericho Cup 2020 as possessing authentic depth. He relayed that it is a true honour to be victorious in the contest.
The Jericho Cup 2020 is a competition held yesterday, Sunday, November 29. This 4,600-metre horse racing event took place at Warrnambool. Additionally, this third-annual Jericho Cup awarded the winner $300,000 as prize money. Another factor that made Wilde appreciate his experience in this year’s Jericho Cup is because his runner, Count Zero, is the champion. According to the information posted online by Australian horse racing news and tips portal, JustHorseRacing, the six-year-old gelding’s odds were $28 and $7.60.
Count Zero defeated Dambulla, whose odds were $3.80 and came in second, and Wil John, who came in third with a $2-odd. Alienated is the racehorse that made it to the fourth place during the competition at Victoria’s Warrnambool Racecourse. Count Zero joined High Mode and Ablaze as the champions of the reimagined Jericho Cup, based on the news posted online by Australian horse betting news and information website, Racenet.
Wilde had nothing but praises for Count Zero. He cited that My Duchess and Zed’s Kiwi-bred, bay-coloured offspring is as tough as nails. The racehorse trainer relayed that he had thought that Count Zero would be prepared for his trip. He shared that Count Zero’s last two runs are the events that turned them.
Wilde described that his galloper’s initial two runs in this campaign appeared typical. On the other hand, he referred to the last two runs as the events that provided their group with some confidence to participate in the Jericho Cup 2020. Wilde remarked that Count Zero had pulled up quite well. He also said that his sprinter is a good eater and is the correct racehorse to back up.
In the last 1,000 metres of Sunday’s horse racing event, Count Zero ran favourite Wil John and Dambulla ragged. His opponents were game in defeat, together with Alienated. The trio ran hard but to no avail. Wilde’s masterful preparation supported the successful and valiant Warrnambool resident three weeks on end. Additionally, local rider Luke Williams’ tactical nous made Count Zero more ready for the Jericho Cup 2020.
Williams relayed that his competitors attempted to drive him down towards the inside. He said, however, that as he came down to make the last turn, he stayed for a little longer and drove him and Count Zero to victory.
Bill Gibbins concocted his brainchild horse race, which is the Jericho Cup. He desired to honour the Australian Light Horse’s deeds in the First World War. This year’s Jericho Cup is the third in the annual event that began in 2018. It takes place on the fourth Sunday following the Melbourne Cup, based on the sporting event’s official website.
