Australian Cup Betting Preview
Is the Melbourne Cup – Australian Cup double about to be achieved?
Melbourne Cup champ My Redeemer (2) has drawn perfectly in two for Saturday night’s feature. If he doesn’t lead then he will be close enough in the back straight and that may be all he needs to another the Australian Cup to his growing list of credits. Dyna Patty (1) couldn’t have asked for a better draw while Bago Bye Bye impressed in its first run back in Oz and Miss Splendamiro is capable of winning with an even share of luck.
The Key Runners:
1. Dyna Patty – A.Dailly: $3.60*: Blessed with brilliant box speed she is sure to be in the firing line throughout. Has won four times from the red and pinged the lids last week in the heat before overpowering the leader Italian Plastic. Major player.
2. My Redeemer – D.Geall: $4*: The Melbourne Cup winner has drawn perfectly in box two. Can come out and lead but is also a determined chaser as evidenced by his heat win last week when grabbing the leader Shima Breeze on straightening. Has won four times from box two and is a four time winner at the track/distance.
4. Bago Bye Bye – D. Russell: $4.80*: Produced the fastest time of the night in blitzing its rivals in last week’s heat. Led throughout from box eight and stopped the clock in 29.54. A huge effort considering it was having its first start back in Australia in nearly a year after dominating in New Zealand recently. Box is a slight concern but must be respected.
8. Miss Spendamiro – D.Geall: $4*: Arguably the fastest beginner in the race and box eight suits her down to the ground. Has won five times from out there and beat Poke The Bear in her heat after leading from five. If she finds the front, the last 50m will be the only concern.
What a brilliant race but we are sticking with the inside boxes in the hope of making some money.
