Ritzy’s Boy, a winner in TAB company two starts back at Cowra, set the pace in the event with Centabeel settling near the tail of the field.
With Mark Galea in the saddle, Centabeel ($5.00) dashed around the field at the 400m and after a good battle in the straight prevailed over Ritzy’s Boy ($4.00, Alan Barton) by a length-and-a-quarter.
Coming from last to finish third was 2012 Cup winner Azarax (Ricky Blewitt), which was backed from $4.00 into $3.00 favourite on course.
The George Wright-trained Daley, runner-up in recent cups at Bedgerebong and Condobolin, was scratched from the cup at Tottenham to instead race at Carathool.
Ridden by John Kissick, Daley started favourite and won the Class 2 Handicap (1400m).
It continued a good day for Wright, who has two winners at Tottenham in Banana Bender ($2.00 fav, Tim Phillips) and Beer Makeup ($4.60, Ricky Blewitt).
Meanwhile Dayne Bennett, who rides trackwork at Wyong for prominent trainer Allan Denham, achieved his first winner as a jockey aboard the Rodney Robb-trained Ring ‘N’ Swing in the Open Sprint (1000m) at Tottenham.
From near last, Ring ‘N’ Swing ($17.00) finished strongly to beat King Brown ($4.80, Stuart Brown) and Blades Of Glory ($2.80 fav, Ricky Blewitt)
