Quality galloper Cup Night in doubt for Northam Stakes on May 1 after latest setback

Cup Night could miss the Northam Stakes next month but trainer Bernie Miller is breathing a sigh of relief after the luckless galloper’s latest setback.

Miller had the reigning Group 3 Northam Stakes (1100m) winner checked by vets after regular rider Patrick Carbery said he “felt terrible” at trackwork on Thursday morning.

Minor issues with his hocks were detected and Miller expects Cup Night to continue his campaign, with the Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m) at Belmont Park on May 14 a possible first-up target.

“He worked real good on Tuesday but on Thursday Pat said he felt terrible,” Miller said.
