Can All But One go one better?

All But One will be one of the favourites for the Coonamble Cup this Sunday.

The eight-year-old All But Gone finished second in the 2018 Coonamble Jockey Club Cup and connections will be hoping the Haradasun gelding can go one better in 2019.

The Damien Lane runner went down 0.44 lengths last year and is drawn to be another big show in the rich $75,000 event. 

Serg Lisnyy will jump aboard the old stager on Sunday and will look to give his charge every chance from gate eight. 

In a race that has attracted runners from all areas of NSW, Gai Waterhouse Racing and Adrian Bott will enter Falcon Island in the same event, ridden by Rory Hutchings

The five-year-old has been running around in city events in recent times and looks on paper to be the class runner of this field. 

A game front-running type, the Harbour Watch gelding looks every part the leader, and from gate four it will be interesting to see what kind of pressure he is put under by some of the best country horses in NSW. 

One runner drawn to get a nice sit in this event is the Jeff Englebrecht trained Hammond Lane. 

The eight-year-old Dreamscape gelding likes to sit midfield and there will be plenty of pace in this event, giving him every chance. 

Leading NSW jockey Aaron Bullock hops aboard and the pair will no doubt be screaming towards the judge when push comes to shove. 

Of the roughies, perennial cup competitor Free Billy will jump at juicy odds. 

Despite often sitting last or thereabouts, the nine-year-old hasn’t missed a place in four starts and is bound to be storming home. 

If the pace battle does take off for young and old, the Peter Sinclar runner could be a dark horse. 

After drawing gate 13, apprentice hoop Clayton Gallagher will no doubt settle at the rear and followers will be hoping the heavens open for the old boy to get a clear run. 

Regardless, the annual Coonamble Jockey Club Cup looks to be an enthralling fixture and will pique the interest of racing fans and punters alike.
