Master O'Reilly out of Cup


VETERAN stayer Master O'Reilly and Rosehill Guineas winner Zabrasive are early scratchings from tomorrow's $2.5 million Caulfield Cup

There are two early scratchings from tomorrow's Caulfield Cup with Zabrasive and Master O'Reilly coming out.

Master O'Reilly was withdrawn yesterday morning after suffering a minor bout of colic and Zabrasive was scratched late last night after suffering a joint strain.

Master O'Reilly's trainer, Danny O'Brien, said the horse was now fine but as he had received treatment he could not run.

He will now start in the Cathay Pacific Airways Cup (2500m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday week before running in the Melbourne Cup.

Zabrasive's trainer, John O'Shea, said it was a minor strain and had it been a good track he may have been able to run him.

Zabrasive will now go for a four month spell.

As a result the two emergencies, Mourayan and Red Ruler, are now starters.
