Group 1 Bold Trease 2011 Carnival Cup winner Zipping Malfoy

The script said it would be a match between litter brothers and so the Group 1 $105,000 2011 Carnival Cup Final (715m) at Sandown Park last night proved.

Grandeur and Echelon (Mogambo x Offspringer) versus Zipping Lad and Zipping Malfoy (Malfoy x Or Catra).

The form guide gave the verdict to the Victorian littermates Grandeur and Echelon, after all they both won their respective heats.

Of the Sydney brothers Zipping Lad and Zipping Malfoy, the former was given a hope while Zipping Malfoy, after a 10 length defeat in the heat won by Granduer, was being dismissed.

But while the final itself was somewhat one dimensional, the script was thrown out the window.

Zipping Malfoy, at $34.90 on TABsportbet, turned it around and simply led throughout to win the 2011 Carnival Cup Final.

Whereas the front runner folded badly in heat run running 42.52, he found another gear in the final to win in a quick 41.79 sec leaving his opponent shuffling for second prize.

That went to Echelon, $3.50, who began poorly and worked his way through the field.

He only made it to his final position coming into the home straight and by that time the race was over.

Zipping Malfoy won by three and three quarter lengths with Slick Lee ($22) another two and a three quarters away third after earlier tailing the field.

The win was a triumph for Londonderry trainer Anthony Azzopardi who has had a great month having won the Paws Of Thunder at Wentworth Park with Fancy Will.

Zipping Lad ran into second mid race but faded while Granduer got into trouble and never threatened.
