Three-year-olds Out to Upset 2013 BTC Cup Favourites

There’s been plenty of hype about the Group 1 2013 BTC Cup (1200m) which stands as the highlight event on the opening day of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

And rightfully so.

The race contains up a mouth-watering clash between genuine speedsters Buffering and Rain Affair who also have to hold off defending champion Sea Siren.

Understandably, the big three dominate the betting market but there are some exciting youngsters that will be out to knock off their bigger-name counterparts.

Queensland’s Better Than Ready and Sydney colt Your Song represent two serious winning chances should any of the big guns fail.

But just who are these three-year-old emerging gallopers? Keep reading for the Races.com.au rundown on some key knock-out chances in the BTC Cup.

#7 Better Than Ready $6.50

  • Really exciting Queensland colt from the stable of Kelly Schweida
  • Has won six of 10
  • Was fifth in the Newmarket on Group 1 debut in March
  • Last-start 1 1/2 length winner in the Mick Dittman Plate
  • Three-time winner from four starts at Eagle Farm
