2012 Albury Cup Odds – Top Two Tough to Split

The top two horses are almost impossible to split in the betting markets for tomorrow’s Listed $170,000 2012 Albury Cup (2000m).

A decent field of 14 stayers will make the trip to Albury and the early favourites are the Bede Murrary trained World Wide ($3.70) and five-year-old gelding Under The Hat ($3.80).

Both horses are coming into the race in good form with World Wide running second in the Canberra Cup while Under The Hat has experienced some good results at Flemington.

The John Sadler trained Under The Hat won the Festival of Racing Handicap in February before just missing out on top honours in the Mittys Handicap on March 3.

World Wide trainer Bede Murrary is brimming with confidence ahead of tomorrow’s feature country race.

“I think the horse is spot-on,” Murray said.

“The 2000 metres is about World Wide’s right distance. I couldn’t be happier with him.”

There is some distance in the betting behind the top two horses with the next closest being in-form New Zealand horse Muirfield ($7.00) who is chasing a third consecutive victory.

The Michael Moroney trained four-year-old backed up a win in the PFD Foodservices Handicap at Sale with a strong three-length win at Sandown-Hillside on March 7.

Last year’s runner up Extra Zero ($8.00) has a chance to go one better this year but the David Hayes trained gelding has it all up against him.

The five-year-old will carry the top weight of 60kg and received a further blow yesterday when he drew the widest barrier of the field.

Five-year-old gelding Cheviot Beach provides some value for the punters at $12.00 and prior to a hiccup in the Roy Higgins Quality, the gelding had been in good form.

He started his 2012 campaign with a sixth-place finish in the Chandler Macleod Handicap but followed that up with consecutive second-placings at Sandown before winning the Gurner’s Lane Handicap at Flemington.

Other horses set to run in the 2012 Albury Cup include the Peter Moody trained King Diamond ($10.00) and six-year-old gelding Bid Spotter ($26.00).

Orange Cup winner Micalong has been scratched along with Over Quota, Cosmic Fury and Pole Dancing.
