Rain Drum Dominates 2012 Wagga Wagga Cup Odds

The bookies and punters are tipping the magic run for Gai Waterhouse to continue at Wagga on Friday with her impressive four-year-old Rain Drum the pronounced favourite to take out the Wagga Wagga Cup 2012.

Gai Waterhouse has declared Rain Drum Friday's 2012 Wagga Wagga Cup winner

Due to jump at 4:15pm on Friday this year’s edition of the $140,000 Jam Media 2012 Wagga Wagga Cup (2000m) is shaping up as a beauty.

Of the 18 acceptors – 16 starters and two emergencies – it is Fastnet Rock gelding Rain Drum topping the Wagga Wagga Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au.

The consistent galloper raced away with their fourth win from eight starts last time out at Canterbury with a big three and a half length victory over 1900m, their second victory from three attempts at the distance.

Set to start from barrier 10, into eight if the emergencies don’t get a run, Rain Drum will be ridden by Tommy Berry on Friday and pays $3.80 to salute for the punters.

Waterhouse, fresh off an astounding seven Group 1 Sydney Autumn Carnival victories, has already declared them the Wagga Wagga Cup winner.

“Rain Drum will just win, simple as that,” she said.

“He’s a good horse in the making.”

Just three of their rivals are considered single-figure chances of an upset at this stage of the Wagga Wagga Cup betting with:

  • #12 Southern Shimmer ($8) – Ross Stitt-trained four-year-old has been racing consistently in Sydney recently coming off a close third over 1800m ant Randwick from Anzac Day, has seen the 2000m once before but failed because of a Heavy (8) track. Need it dry to do more than just try.
  • #6 Legsman ($8.50) – Pins six-year-old from the Randwick stables of John O’Shea ran 10th first up to fast Clip in the Doncaster Prelude, will improve on that second up over more distance, can handle it slow – heavy and James McDonald rides. Genuine Each Way Chance.
  • #4 Vintedge ($9) – Chris Waller’s Flying Spur mare comes off a sixth to Western Symbol in the JRA Plate over this distance, a Group 2 winner over the 2000m during the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemignton last spring and always peaks right at the end of her campaigns. Right time and place for Vintedge.

Other genuine hopes at longer odds include Victorian raider Lucky Eighty Eight ($10), Canberra Cup third placegetter Coliseo ($10), Extra Zero ($12) who carries the 58kg topweight and former New Zealander Roi D’Jeu ($14).
