Final Field 2013 Sydney Cup Odds – Kelinni Retains Top Spot

Updated Sydney Cup 2013 odds on the 11-horse final field have been released at bookies around Australia ahead of the two mile classic running at Royal Randwick this Saturday and Chris Waller’s in-form stayer Kelinni remains the clear favourite.

After a fourth in The BMW Refuse To Bend five-year-old Kelinni backed up to win last Saturday’s JRA Plate (2000m) on an extremely rain-affected Randwick track carrying 60kg.

They return to Sydney’s premier course just seven days later for this weekend’s $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m) and are set for a big run over the increased distance with a far more manageable 57kg.

Kelinni proved they could handle a short back up last spring when they came off their Lexus Stakes win at Flemington to run an eye-catching fourth just three days later in the world’s richest handicap – the Melbourne Cup – which like Saturday’s clash was also run over the 3200m.

Kelinni’s good record at the two miles, their ability to back-up, their favourable weight and draw, and their perfect lead-up has them installed at the top of the Sydney Cup odds at a current quote of $3.20.

Hot on their heels occupying the second line of Sydney Cup betting is then the Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes-trained 2010 Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday at $4.40 after drawing barrier one for Saturday.

The Zabeel six-year-old also comes off two nice lead-up runs when third in the Ranvet Stakes and then sixth in The BMW where they carried 59kg dropping to 56.5kg for the Sydney Cup.

Team Hawkes is confident Maluckyday can complete their big comeback from a number of serious ailments over the past few seasons with a Sydney Cup victory rating the horse as one of the toughest to come through their stables.

“Maluckyday’s been racing really well without winning,” Hall of Famer John Hawkes who now trains with his sons said.

“He’s as good staying horse as we’ve trained. He’ll never been as good as he was because of the damage done to his lungs.

“(But) I think he’s got enough to win the race. If he really put it together, it’s certainly a great race for him.”

The only other hopefuls under double figures are then Gai Waterhouse’s one-time favourite Julienas ($8) out to atone for their unexplainable last in the Chairman’s Quality last start and winner of that race Tremec ($8) who will jump beside each other from gates 10 and nine respectively.

Other longer-priced chances out for an upset Sydney Cup result then include Kiwi raider Blood Brotha ($10) who has winning form over the 3200m having won the NZ Cup, smart mare Aliyana Tilde ($10) who ran a nice third in the Chairman’s last start and the Lloyd Williams-owned Mourayan ($12) who is equal 58kg topweight along with the reigning Sydney Cup winner Niwot ($15).
