2011 Australian Cup Odds & Betting Update

The 2011 Australian Cup is one of two $1 million Group 1 showdowns highlighting a top nine-race Super Saturday programme at Flemington tomorrow and with race time approaching the Australian Cup odds and betting markets are starting to heat up.

In our exclusive 2011 Australian Cup betting tips and analysis post, the Races.com.au team named the Mark Kavanagh-trained Shocking as our favourite in the 15-horse field to win Flemington Race 7 tomorrow.

A track specialist well suited to the 2000m distance of the race, Shocking is a prime pick to become the Australian Cup winner at juicy odds through Luxbet.

It seems word is catching on as Shocking is one of the market firmers in the Australian Cup betting markets at Luxbet, shortening in from $8.50 to $8 in the past day.

Australian Cup Betting Market Firmers 2011


Shocking has firmed in Australian Cup betting

  • #1 Shocking ($8.50 into $8 Luxbet)
  • #3 Heart Of Dreams ($4.60 into $4.40 Luxbet)
  • #6 Ginga Dude ($21 into $15 Luxbet)

There has also been steady money coming in for the uncertain favourite Heart Of Dreams.

Fourth-placegetter in this race 12 months ago, the Mick Price-trained Heart Of Dreams has improved leaps and bounds over the past year coming on in his fitness and ability.

Last start the five-year-old coasted home, beating a number of his fellow Australian Cup rivals, in the Group 2 St George Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield on February 26.

However, Heart Of Dreams record over the Australian Cup distance is dicey and many can smell an upset.

Still the favourite has his share of fans and odds on Heart Of Dreams have shortened in from $4.60 to $4.40 in the most recent Australian Cup markets at Luxbet.

But it is Kiwi stayer Ginga Dude who has been the standout market mover for the Australian Cup 2011.

Opening at a generous price of $21 to win, the punters quickly jumped on the Ginga Dude bandwagon with odds on the in-form seven-year-old coming right into $15.

The Graeme Boyd-trained Ginga Dude came up trumps with barrier one in the Australian Cup draw, is well-tested over 2000m both here and back home in NZ and will be sharp with the addition of blinkers tomorrow.

Ginga Dude ran a game fourth in the St George Stakes last start and impressed many during the spring with three big Melbourne runs winning the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) at Caulfield by two lengths in October, finishing third to So You Think in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) on Derby Day and then coming in fourth behind Zipping in the Group 2 Sandown Classic (2400m) in mid-November.

Still at good odds paying $15, Ginga Dude is a definite upset chance to back at Luxbet in the Australian Cup tomorrow.
