26/11/2018 Pakenham Cup aim for Lycurgus

Trainer Danny O’Brien believes he made the right call to scratch Lycurgus (Star Witness) from Saturday’s Ballarat Cup (Listed, 2200m) and target the Pakenham Cup (Listed, 2500m). "He'll go to Moonee Valley to run in the 2040-metre benchmark-90 and then he will run in the Pakenham Cup off a seven-day break," O'Brien said. "He's always been a horse that we've had trouble with on wet tracks. He struggles on ground worse than a soft five. It's disappointing but he can't handle it, and the weather is the weather. He'll get his chance in these next two starts. So hopefully he can get the Pakenham Cup."
