Wagga Wagga Cup 2012 Betting Update – Favourite Firms

The punters are coming hard and fast for the Gai Waterhouse-trained favourite Rain Drum to win this afternoon’s 2012 Wagga Wagga Cup, the in-form Sydneysider the genuine betting market mover.

After opening at a quote of $3.80 to win the $140,000 Listed Jam Media 2012 Wagga Wagga Cup (2000m) at bookmaker.com.au earlier this week, four-year-old Fastnet Rock gelding Rain Drum has been heavily backed and is now at $3.30.

“Rain Drum has been smashed this morning in the Wagga Cup and is the only one they want so far,” Ryan Clark from bookmaker.com.au said.

“He holds more money than any other horse on our books at the moment.”

Set to jump from gate eight following the official scratching of the two emergencies, Rain Drum comes off an impressive three and a half length win over 1990m at Canterbury from April 13 and should handle the step up in distance without issue.

Tommy Berry reunites with them after Nash Rawiller rode Rain Drum last start, Berry having most recently ridden them for a four length victory over the Wyong mile in March.

The other notable market mover in from $8 to $7.50 is then Southern Shimmer.

Ross Stitt’s Taree-based four-year-old hasn’t won a race since the Dubbo Cup last September but has improved in each of their three runs this time in.

Coming off a third over 1800m at Randwick on Anzac Day, Southern Shimmer has been prepared especially for the Wagga Cup and Stitt believes the distance and timing are right for them to break the drought.

Most of the other horses have been ignored, many staying static on their opening price or easing out as all the pennies go into Rain Drum’s slot.

Horses to drift out in the Wagga Wagga Cup betting markets include the John O’Shea-trained Legsman ($8.50 out to $9), resuming Kiwi stayer Roi D’Jeu ($14 out to $16), and Graeme Rogerson’s former Hobart Cup champ Bid Spotter ($15 out to $16).
