Jet Away set to Fly – 2013 Easter Cup Betting

David Hayes-trained import Jet Away is expected to continue his early Australian success this Saturday at Caulfield, at least if the betting market for the Group 3 2013 Easter Cup (2000m) is anything to go by.

The six-year-old has been the best backed runner in early markers and is currently into $3 and a clear favourite at

Jet Away has been the subject of plenty of hype and there has been talk he could be a Caulfield Cup contender after he flew home to win on Australian debut in the Golden Mile at Bendigo earlier this month.

But it will be no easy task to make it two from two on Australian soil, with a host of quality stayers contesting the Easter Cup.

Second in the market is Mick Price-trained gelding Callanish ($4.40) who is expected to appreciate the step up in distance after running fourth in the Blamey Stakes (1600m).

“I’ve always wanted to get to 2000m with him. His form’s good, the horse’s good and I reckon he’ll be a live chance,” Price said.

The son of Fastnet Rock won the first eight starts of his career but has found the going tougher since stepping up in grade this autumn.

Bringing strong form into the race but facing a step up in class is Keep Cool ($7) who won his last start at Flemington over 2000m and has won three of his past four outings.

Folding Gear won the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes in the spring and at $7.50 can improve off a fifth-place finish in the Golden Mile.

In a similar position to Keep Cool is Whisper Downs ($9.50) who rises in grade after winning over the Easter Cup trip in a benchmark 89 at Caulfield.

A possible value runner in the field is Peter Moody-trained gelding Vatuvei ($17) who won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup at the Spring Carnival.
