Christmas Cup 2013 Odds – Top Two Hard to Split

The bookies are having a hard time separating the top two fancies in Saturday’s 2013 Christmas Cup at Kensington with Secessio and Hoylonny fighting for the number one spot in the markets.

One of the key support races of Villiers Stakes Day, this year’s $100,000 Listed Inglis Christmas Cup (2400m) features a diminutive field of just seven runners following the early scratching of #7 French Gift.

It may not boast the numbers but there’s certainly an element of end-of-season class about the stayers set to square off.

Currently leading the two horse Christmas Cup betting battle at a quote of $3.60 is Secessio drawn in the far outside barrier.

The Chris Waller-trained German import has been racing down under since this time last year and has so far won just three times in Australia.

The most recent of those was first-up at Rosehill over 1500m this November.

That run was followed by two more good Rosehill efforts when the Konigstiger gelding ran third over 1990m and then 2000m respectively.

They were last crossing two and a half off the Gai Waterhouse-trained Travolta, a chance for the 2014 Perth Cup in WA on New Year’s Day, in the Listed ATC Cup on November 30, an effort they’re out to improve on when stepped up to the mile and a half this weekend.

The last time they saw the 2400m was in July when they carried 58kg to a nice two length victory on a Slow (7) track.

For the Christmas Cup Secessio has 57kg and could get the give out of the ground again with rain threatening in Sydney.

Hot on Secessio’s heels in the Christmas Cup odds at $3.80 is then the nicely-drawn Hoylonny set to jump from gate two with Peter Robl aboard.

Another Waller-trained hope, the Lonhro five-year-old also comes into the race on the back of two good Rosehill runs.

The first was a win over stablemate Permit in a 1900m handicap before their ATC Cup second a fortnight ago when they carried one kilo less than their 58kg allocation for the weekend.

In a wide open race that seemingly any horse could win there are then four other single figure fancies.

The next best in betting are 2010 Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday ($5.50) who ran fourth in the ATC Cup last time out and the rails-drawn Garud ($7) out to improve on their dead last finish when 16th to The Offer in the Ballarat Cup in the mud on November 24.

The only other runner over $10 in the markets meanwhile is $14 ‘outsider’ Frozen Rope who was seventh in the ATC Cup which looks like the form guide for this race.
