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.
