Cooldini Heads Adelaide Cup Odds 2014

Markets are out and heating up for this afternoon’s 2014 Adelaide Cup at Morphettville Racecourse with the Robert Smerdon-trained Victorian visitor Cooldini heading the odds for one of the country’s last remaining two mile classics.

Run as Race 7 at 4:00pm (local time) this year’s $400,000 Group 1 Tattsbet Adelaide Cup (3200m) originally drew a final field of 16 genuine stayers.

There have been a number of early scratchings however with three coming out: Unchain My Heart, Aggregator and Waltzing To Win.

Adelaide Cup betting is now a close two horse battle between current $3 favourite Cooldini, who is the market mover at, and the in-form Big Memory at $3.20.

Drawn in 11, now jumping from nine with big race specialist Glen Boss aboard, Bernardini four-year-old Cooldini comes off a last start win at Flemington in the Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m).

Having their 18th start today the up-and-comer sees the 3200m for the first time and connections are hoping they handle the distance as they eye a shot at the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Royal Randwick on April 19.

Tony McEvoy’s Duke Of marmalade four-year-old Big Memory meanwhile also comes off a win, a stunning three length effort under the lights at Moonee Valley on February 21.

There they beat home Aggregator in the Listed Torney Night Cup (2500m) fighting back after over racing early and suffering interference with 600m left to travel.

This import has a super consistent record and also has experience at the track with two of their seven Australian starts being in Adelaide.

There is then just one other single figure fancy in the current Adelaide Cup odds with Outback Joe paying 7.

Getting in with 54kg, a full five kilos better than the 59kg top weight Black Tycoon ($21), the Nigel Blackison-trained Elvstroem six-year-old comes off a third to Cooldini in the Roy Higgins.

They’re looking to improve on that run today however as they go up in distance, hopefully emulating their form at Flemington from New Year’s Day when they won the Listed Bagot Handicap (2800m) defeating Hurdy Gurdy Man by two and a half lengths.

Also in the mix at more generous prices are then the likes of the David Hayes-trained Group 3 winner Motivado ($13) in gate two, local Kempinsky gelding Rialya ($15) and Peter Moody’s veteran Zabeel eight-year-old Macedonian ($17) coming via a Roy Higgins fourth.

Motivado is a British import, formerly with Sir Mark Prescott, and has form in Europe up to 3600m and is third-up here with improvement on their two season openers expected.

Rialya meanwhile is the best backed of the local Adelaide hopes, their latest run being a seventh to Distillation in the Group 3 Lord Remis Stakes (2600m) at the start of the month.

They are a Group 3 winner in Brisbane however having won their last winter, and of course won the Adelaide Cup back in 2012.
