Apollo Stakes Day Betting – 2011 Parramatta Cup Tips

The 2011 Parramatta Cup will run this Saturday February 19, 2011, and here at Races.com.au we have put together the best tips for the race.

The Parramatta Cup is a Listed race run over 2,000 meters for runners aged three-years-old and upwards.

Worth $100,000, the 2011 Parramatta Cup has once again attracted a stellar field hoping to gain some Black Type on Apollo Stakes Day.

Current favourite at Luxbet is Chris Waller’s six-year-old gelding Beijing Boy, paying $3.30.

Beijing Boy has won eight of his 20 starts to date and won his only previous race at this track over this distance.

Chris Waller’s Beijing Boy finished second over 1,500 metres last start at Randwick on February 5, 2011, but was coming from behind and would definitely suit the extra 500 metres he will have in the 2011 Parramatta Cup to catch the leaders.

Last time Beijing Boy competed over 2,000 metres he beat the rest of the field by 1.3 lengths, and we are confident that he can do it again in the 2011 Parramatta Cup, especially considering he is only carrying 54.5 kilograms.

Here at Races.com.au we are confident that Chris Waller will pick up the quinella in the 2011 Parramatta Cup, tipping his other starter, Hawk Island, to finish second.

Hawk Island has drawn barrier four for the 2011 Parramatta Cup and has won eight of his 30 career starts to date.

You should keep in mind, however, that Hawk Island generally performs better on a slow/heavy track, winning 7 out of 12 races on tracks in this condition, while only winning 1 of 18 races on good/dead tracks.

Hawk Island will be carrying the heaviest weight of 59 kilograms in the 2011 Parramatta Cup and  will be ridden by jockey Hugh Bowman.

Hawk Island is currently paying $5 for the win at Luxbet.

We are picking Gerald Ryan’s gelding Ironstein to be in the placings in the 2011 Parramatta Cup.

The five-year-old Zabeel gelding has won five of his 19 starts so far and really blossomed into a dangerous competitor last preparation.

Ironstein will be up in class for tomorrow’s race, however will have dropped down in weight, carrying only 53 kilograms, and we think this is enough to guarantee him a shot at the placings.

Ironstein has drawn barrier nine in the 2011 Parramatta Cup, will have Corey Brown on-board and is currently paying $4.20 to win at Luxbet.

2011 Parramatta Cup – Rosehill Tips Race 5

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #3 Beijing Boy
  • Best Place Picks: #1 Hawk Island, #7 Ironstein and #9 Fusakeo

Also in the mix is Gai Waterhouse’s five-year-old gelding Fusakeo.

The Fusaichi Pegasus gelding won his first race this preparation and since then has only failed to place one out of four times.

Fusakeo has drawn barrier three and will be ridden by apprentice jockey Tommy Berry.

Luxbet is offering odds of $5.50 a win for Fusakeo.
