Foreteller and Lights Of Heaven Equal Favourites – 2013 Doomben Cup Betting

It’s a case of Melbourne’s leading trainer against Sydney’s leading trainer as Peter Moody’s mare Lights Of Heaven and Chris Waller’s import Foreteller share 2013 Doomben Cup (2000m) favouritism.

The pair are currently at $3.50 for Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1. Both bring strong credentials to Queensland but Lights Of Heaven has the early edge.

The five-year-old mare won traditional Doomben Cup lead-up the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes, with Foreteller boxing on behind for a half-length second.

Lights Of Heaven is aiming to go one better in Queensland’s biggest staying race after finishing second to Mawingo last year.

Foreteller is well into a campaign that began in February but took out the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes in March over the same 2000m distance.

The final field won’t be known until Wednesday and the weather is likely to determine to its make up but occupying the third line of betting at $5 is Lamasery.

David Vandyke said his stable star is unlikely to start if Queensland’s big wet continues but he is certainly a winning chance if he lines up.

The injury-plagued gelding showed glimpses of his best in the Hollindale Stakes when running home for fourth.

No other runner falls under double figures, with another of Waller’s imports, Beaten Up, the next best chance at $10.

Rated an $11 proposition is Hippopus, a three-year-old from the stable of Gai Waterhouse. The colt is still lightly raced for just 10 starts but the three-year-olds have been dominant this year.

At his last start he showed his genuine staying potential with a three-length win in the VRC St Leger (2800m).

Other key Doomben Cup chances include triple Group 1 winner Manighar ($17) and John O’Shea’s talented gelding Lightinthenite ($17).
