2011 Perth Cup Futures Betting – Ranger Early Favourite

The 2011 Perth Cup is set to light up Ascot Racecourse on New Year’s Day, Saturday January 1, the highly anticipated showdown bringing the Perth Summer Racing Carnival to a close for another season and the early futures betting markets for the race are now open.

Ranger is installed as the short-priced favourite to win the $400,000 Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m), currently paying around $7.50 in the online markets after the Grant Williams-trained four-year-olds’ impressive stakes win in the W.A. St Leger (2100m) last Saturday.

Following closely in the Perth Cup odds is classy mare Impressive Jeuney at a quote of $8, who will be an excellent light-weight chance having been allocated 54.5kg in the Perth Cup weights.

Darren Mcauliffe’s four-year-old Impressive Jeuney has been in career best form this season, most recently running a gallant second to Playing God in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m).

Other top picks in the Perth Cup futures betting include in-form eight-year-old stayer Capecover ($11), quality local mare Ma Chienne ($11), Chris Waller’s consistent Sydney galloper Beijing Boy ($12) and the Neville Parnham-trained local Blackfriars four-year-old God Has Spoken ($12).

Longer priced roughies nominated for the Perth Cup that could prove excellent value bets from the early markets include G.A. Towton Cup winner Brandy Lane ($26) and improving Flying Spur three-year-old who has placed in all six of their career starts Hoegaarden ($41).

The 2011 Perth Cup final field of acceptors will be released on December 27 and published here at Races.com.au so bookmark this site.
