Buffering Clear Favourite in 2013 BTC Cup Betting

Queensland’s top sprinter Buffering is a clear favourite to win the Group 1 2013 BTC Cup (1200m) at his home track at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The five-year-old is poised to break his Group 1 duck and opened a $2.50 chance in the BTC Cup market.

Buffering has placed seven times in the top grade and heads into Saturday’s Brisbane feature on the back of a dominant Group 2 Victory Stakes win.

But despite his favouritism and form, the BTC Cup is no done deal for Queensland’s reigning horse of the year.

Among the top chances he will have to overcome are Sydney’s electric front-runner Rain Affair ($5) and defending champion Sea Siren ($5.50).

Rain Affair is coming off a runner-up finish in the All Aged Stakes while Sea Siren was last seen running fifth in the TJ Smith Stakes.

Just behind the three big guns in betting is boom Brisbane colt Better Than Ready ($6) who is being set on a Stradbroke Handicap campaign.

The Kelly Schweida-trained galloper was fifth in his first Group 1 shot in the Newmarket Handicap in March and returned with a strong win in the Listed Mick Dittman Plate last month.

No other runner falls under double figures, with Anthony Cummings-trained colt Your Song the next best at $10.

Arriving from Sydney off a last-start win is Rarefied ($18) who took out the Listed Hall Mark Stakes in just his second start back from a 16-month injury layoff.

Spirit Of Boom ($21) was third in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate in February but will have to overcome an outside barrier draw while stablemate Temple Of Boom is a $34 chance.

Outsiders in the field are New Zealand visitor Jetset Lad ($41) and Patinack-owned three-year-old Reflectance ($51).
