Punters Speak Cantonese – Christmas Cup 2012 Odds

Bjorn Baker’s consistent stayer Cantonese has opened top of the odds for the 2012 Christmas Cup at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday, the five-year-old looking to atone for their last start loss at the track a fortnight ago.


Cantonese has opened favourite to win the 2012 Christmas Cup this Saturday

A final field of 10 gallopers were accepted for in this year’s $100,000 Listed Uncle Tony’s Christmas Cup (2400m) which is set to run as Race 6 at 4:20pm on Saturday.

Of the hopefuls it is Cantonese drawn nicely in gate four with Jim Cassidy in the saddle who is the early Christmas Cup betting favourite paying $3.30.

Cantonese enjoyed back-to-back wins in November, including a big three length effort over 2200m at Warwick farm, before they ran a brave fourth last start when defeated half a length by Scream Machine in the Blackwoods Uvex Safety 3YO Handicap (2000m) at Rosehill.

Getting back up in distance on Saturday is sure to suit the horse who is stepping up to black type company for the first time in their 20-start career to date and they will also appreciate the drop back from 56.5kg last start to the 54kg minimum for the cup.

In tight market there are four other hopefuls under double-figures in the Christmas Cup odds with:

  • #1 Fiumicino ($4.20) – Barrier nine and the 59kg topweight to overcome but this evergreen Zabeel nine-year-old handled gate eight and the same weight to beat a similar field of rivals in the Listed ATC Cup (2200m) at Warwick Farm last start
  • #2 Moriarty ($5.50) – Chris Waller’s in-form import has run top three in all six of their runs this time in including three wins and their good last star third in the ATC Cup which they can improve on here with a bit of luck
  • #7 Iggi Pop ($7.50) – John O’Shea-trained Savabeel four-year-old was competitive in the Group races during the autumn and gets their first black type assignment this campaign here, ran third to Saturday’s favourite Cantonese at Rosehill last time out and will need to improve to get closer than 3.5 lengths again here
  • #5 King Utah ($9) – Port Macquarie galloper coming off a good second in the ATC Cup, on the 54kg minimum again here but has to overcome barrier 10, still a genuine Place chance with a clear run and distance suits
