Brisbane Cup 2012 – Betting Update and Tips

Rounding out the bumper day of racing at Eagle Farm tomorrow is the Group 2 $300,000 2012 Brisbane Cup which will test a full field of 18 stayers over 2400 metres.

Mawingo & Lights Of Heaven

Mawingo & Lights Of Heaven are the tip for a first-second Brisbane Cup finish

It is hard to separate the two favourites at the top of the market, with German import Mawingo ($3.40) holding a slight edge over Lights Of Heaven ($3.80).

Trained by Anthony Freedman, Mawingo beat Lights Of Heaven by a head in the Group 1 Doomben Cup while Lights Of Heaven is backing up seven days after an impressive win the Eagle Farm Cup.

The only other horse to fall under double figures is fellow Freedman-trained import Freuhling ($9.00) but the talented four-year-old is an emergency and will only gain a start if another runner is scratched.

Next best in the betting is Dan Morton-trained veteran Scenic Shot ($14.00) who has been consistent this preparation with a fourth-place effort in the Doomben Cup followed by an Eagle Farm Cup second.

Others set to run include the in-form Dance With Her ($15.00) and Michael Kent-trained Absolutely whose chances will both improve if the track stays in the slow range.

Unsure where to put your Brisbane Cup punting money? Keep reading as the think tank have been hard at work studying the form to deliver our best Brisbane Cup tips.

The Winner

#2 Mawingo $3.40

It looks as if it will be a repeat of the Doomben Cup with Mawingo and Lights Of Heaven battling it out to the line.

Provided the track is not too wet, Mawingo looks to have more in his favour and will get the gun run from barrier five.

The talented import has had just three runs on Australian soil so expect him to again improve here after a three week break since the Doomben Cup.

The Placings

#3 Lights Of Heaven $3.80 and #8 Dance With Her $16.00

Lights Of Heaven has improved every start this preparation and if rain falls between now and race day and the track is slow or heavy, she probably assumes favouritism.

The Peter Moody-trained mare produced two close runner-up finishes in the Hollindale Stakes and the Doomben Cup before dominating the Eagle Farm Cup to win by three lengths.

Jockey Luke Nolen has some work to do from barrier 19 but expect this mare to go forward early and show plenty of toughness at the back end of the race.

Dance With Her was beaten at the line last start in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup and prior to that was in exceptional form so expect her to again give an honest performance.

The Al Maher mare won the Warrnambool Cup and Centaurea Stakes earlier this year and will get an easy run from the inside barrier.

The Roughie

#10 Fantastic Blue $41.00

This Danehill Dancer gelding surprised everyone at the track last start when he stormed home to win the Group 3 Premier’s Cup last start.

Prior to that he was in horrible form but if he can get a decent run with Glen Boss on board he showed last start he is capable of a flying finish.
