Smart Twister will line up for a start in the Group 2 Perth Cup on December 31, 2011, and trainer Neville Parnham believes he will be a winning chance.
Parnham, who also has CB Cox Stakes winner God Has Spoken in the race, feels that punters have been forgetting about Smart Twist.
The trainer has laid out a challenge for fellow Perth Cup 2011 competitor Dancin On The Wind.
Smart Twister finished third behind Dancin In The Wind and Senhor Da Gama in the Coastal Transport Handicap at Ascot last start.
“I think Smart Twister will beat Dancin On The Wind home,” Parnham said.
“There is a big difference in the weights.
“He was terrorised by Senhor Da Gama from the 900m under a big weight and the weight told on him in the finish second up.
“Dancin On The Wind was extremely well suited by the way the race was run. He’ll run the 2400m of the cup on his ear and I rate him a very good outside chance.”
Smart Twister has won six of his 20 race starts and has earned more $140,000 in prize money.
The five-year-old gelding will stake his claim to the Perth Cup 2011 when he runs in the ATA Handicap at Ascot Racecourse tomorrow December 23, 2011.
