Sydney Cup 2012 Odds Update – Older Than Time Market Mover

Gai Waterhouse’s in form mare Older Than Time is being backed to go one better than her Sydney Cup second from 12 months ago, the five-year-old the early 2012 Sydney Cup betting market mover ahead of Saturday’s Royal Randwick classic.

Older Than Time & Luen Yat Forever

Older Than Time is one of early 2012 Sydney Cup betting market movers

Drawn in barrier 14 in the 16-stayer field for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m), Don Eduardo mare Older Than Time came within a length of last year’s upset winner Stand To Gain in the two mile showdown run on a Heavy (10) track in 2011.

While the Chris Waller-trained Stand To Gain is a $101 roughie in the Sydney Cup odds at to go back-to-back on Saturday, Older Than Time has been backed and backed well by the punters.

After opening at $9 she is now into $8 in the Sydney Cup betting markets, and looking at their form it is easy to see why.

This year’s Sydney Cup favourite is Permit, another of Waller’s trio along with the defending champ and last year’s fallen favourite Hawk Island, who has eased out from $3.40 to $3.60 over the past few days.

Older Than Time comes off two good runs behind Permit.

First she was four lengths away third in the Listed NE Manion Cup (2400m) at Rosehill on March 31 before she came closer when Permit beat her home three quarters of a length last time out in the Group 2 Chairman’s Quality (2600m) at Randwick on April 14.

Other horses to come in from their original Sydney Cup price at include:

  • #1 Efficient ($15 into $14) – 2007 Melbourne Cup winner so you know they’ll get the distance, queries by some over their fitness since stewards forced them to scratch from the Chairman’s but Lloyd Williams is confident in the 58kg topweight who comes off a fifth in the Australian Cup. Sentimental bet probably just past this.
  • #3 Niwot ($4.60 into $4.40) – Galileo seven-year-old was fourth in the Ranvet and The BMW behind Manighar at their last two, will relish getting up in distance having run a good eighth in the Melbourne Cup. Right distance and right time for Niwot to shine.

The firming price on Efficient comes after the veteran grey was cleared by Racing NSW senior veterinarian Dr Craig Suann to run on Saturday.

There have also been a few hopefuls to drift out in the Sydney Cup betting markets along with the favourite including the Peter Moody-trained Hanks ($34 out to $41) who will be ridden by The Galaxy winning jockey James McDonald.
