to attract one of the largest
crowds in the event s 140-year
A maximum temperature in the

South Australian Jockey
Club CEO Brenton Wilkinson
is expecting huge numbers at
"We re expecting in excess of
20,000," he said.
"Last year we got 22,000, I d love
to get in excess of 25,000 but there
are other events on on the day
which we compete directly with.
"But the weather is set to be

Wilkinson said it was great
for South Australia to have
several local horses in the mix
to claim the 140th Adelaide
Cup, none more so than equal
favourite Moment in Time, who
drew barrier number one at
Wednesday s draw.
"It is great and its run last

will bunch up, but even then it
will be hard to predict a winner,"
"Barrier one will make Moment
in Time show its cards early and
I don t think it will settle after
that. If it can t settle it will have
trouble running out the 3200 m.
"I just question it at this
distance. In its last win it got away
with murder -- it was just a sprint
McDonald said De Fine Lago
was the pick of the entrants;
the Damien Oliver ridden horse
emulating the pre-Cup feat of
last year s champion Zavite, by
winning the Hobart Cup.
He said Fairygem was another
to look out for after it s impressive
win in the Australia Day Cup at
Randwick. Interestingly, Zavite
could only manage a fourth in the
