Premier’s Cup 2012 – Betting Tips

While most of the hype at Rosehill this Saturday will surround the battle between Pierro and All Too Hard, the Listed 2012 Premier’s Cup (1800m) also promises to be an exciting affair.

Stout Hearted

Glencadam Gold is tipped by Races.com.au to beat favourite Stout Hearted (pictured)

A number of quality runners will return to compete with some who have already begun their campaigns ahead of major spring targets such as the Group 1 Metropolitan and Caulfield Cup.

Currently top of the market is the in-form Stout Hearted ($2.30) who will be attempting a third consecutive tomorrow in his first stakes test.

Just behind the favourite is fellow British import Glencadam Gold ($3.75) with Brave The Way ($9.00) and Nextanix ($9.00) the only other horses to feature under double figures.

Not sure who to back in the Premier’s Cup? Never mind, the work has been done for you with the Races.com.au bringing your our very best selections.

The Winner

#10 Glencadam Gold $3.75

Stout Hearted may be at short odds but given the lack of speed in the race Glencadam Gold looks the obvious top pick.

As with all Waterhouse-trained horses, the exciting import should be ridden forwardly and unless Chris Waller changes tactics to travel closer to the pace with Stout Hearted, it is unlikely he will be able to catch up.

Glencadam Gold showed he loves to win when fighting all the way to the line on Australian debut at Canterbury and he looks set to improve as he steps up in distance this weekend.

The Placings

#7 Nextanix $9.00 and #5 Stout Hearted 2.30

Nextanix scored a promising runner-up finish at Rosehill over 1400 metres two weeks ago and should really appreciate the step up in distance.

The Metropolitan-bound five-year-old appears to have returned a sharper horse this time in and looks ready to finally fulfill his obvious potential.

While we don’t think Stout Hearted can win, his form makes him difficult to leave out.

The Chris Waller-trained import will probably win some stakes races this spring and was highly impressive when wunning the Premier’s Cup Prelude last start.
