2010 Geelong Cup Field, Barriers & Betting Odds

Tomorrow, Wednesday October 20, a field of quality stayers will take to the track at Geelong to contest the $225,000 Group 3 Geelong Cup (2406m), many heading towards the 2010 Melbourne Cup in November.

The 2010 Geelong Cup has attracted 15-horse final field, with the betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au lead by the Ciaron Maher-trained Moudre.

One time favourite for the Caulfield Cup, Moudre missed out on a start in the $2.5 million feature last Saturday and is set to start as the odds-on favourite in the Geelong Cup instead, currently paying $4.20 to win.

Five-year-old gelding Moudre is still entered for the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday November 2, however is still unlikely of gaining a spot in the field even if he wins the Geelong Cup as he is yet to pass the first elimination clause.

Moudre has drawn barrier 10 for tomorrow and is due to be ridden by Craig Williams, a good light-weight chance with just 54.5kg suited to the spacious circuit at Geelong.

Other horses at the top end of the Geelong Cup betting at Sportsbet include Mr Charlie, Exceptionally and international raiders Americain and Drunken Sailor.

Second elect is Mr Charlie paying $6.50 after the Peter Moody-trained five-year-old drew ideally with barrier two.

Following closely is four-year-old mare Exceptionally at $7 to win after a favourable barrier three draw and impressive last-start second to Caulfield Cup runner-up Harris Tweed over 2500m at Flemington.

French stayer Americain and Luca Cumani’s Drunken Sailor are at equal odds of $8.50 for tomorrow, both making their Australian race debuts.

The Alain de Royer Dupre-trained Americain has come up trumps in the barrier draw set to start from gate one, topweight with 58kg, while six-year-old Drunken Sailor will jump from barrier nine.

Other notable runners lining up in the 2010 Geelong Cup tomorrow include Gai Waterhouse’s Melbourne Cup bound mare Once Were Wild, the John Thompson-trained Count Encosta and No Wine No Song.

Kevin Moses’ nine-year-old No Wine No Song is starting in his maiden race outside of Sydney tomorrow, the 2008 Sydney Cup winner drawn wide in barrier 14 but still a top chance after a number of eye-catching spring runs including his last start third to Herculian Prince in the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick.

In recent years the Geelong Cup has served as a good Melbourne Cup guide for punters with Dermot Weld’s European runner Media Puzzle the last to take out the double in 2002.

She’s Archie was runner-up in both Cups in 2003 and Luca Cumani’s great grey Bauer won the Geelong Cup in 2008 before his devastatingly close second to Viewed in the Melbourne Cup that year.
