2014 Roma Cup Betting Odds – Magnifisio Narrow Favourite

Jim Taylor’s flying Magnus mare Magnifisio is narrow favourite over triple Group 1 winner Luckygray to win the Roma Cup 2014 at Belmont Park in WA this weekend.

The four-year-old is one of 12 gallopers in the mix for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Del Basso Smallgoods Roma Cup (1200m), running as Belmont Race 7 on Saturday afternoon.

Drawn in the extreme outside barrier hasn’t deterred the bookies from installing Magnifisio, shooting for her fifth consecutive win, as the $2.70 favourite in the latest Roma Cup odds.

She has the wide gate but plenty of form to suggest she can overcome it, and her rivals, with a maiden Group victory.

Three length winner of the Listed Summer Scorcher (1000m) at Ascot on New Year’s Day on the back of her maiden stakes assignment, a win in the Listed R.S. Crawford Stakes at the same track and distance 11 days earlier, Magnifisio returned off a four month spell on May 4 at Northam.

There she enjoyed a one and a half length victory over Travinator in the Listed Northam Toyota Stakes (1100m) with Saturday’s race her first step up to 1200m since a second at Ascot in mid-November.

Hot on her heels in the Roma Cup betting markets meanwhile is the Trevor Andrews-trained Bradbury’s Luck six-year-old Luckygray paying $2.80.

Three and a half length winner of this race two years ago when resuming, the talented $2.57 million earner is first-up in the race again having last been seen running fifth in the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m).

They come off an easy trial win over 1000m here from May 5 though so look back on track, Luckygray after their first win since becoming a dual Railway Stakes champ in November.

The two battling for top spot on Saturday are also the only two single figure chances in this year’s Roma Cup with the rest of the field at $12 or over.

The $12 third fancy is Checkpoint drawn ideally in gate three.

Prepared by master Perth horseman Neville Parnham the Snitzel five-year-old is also first-up here like the bulk of their rivals having last been seen running a brave second in the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) in early November.

Next best in betting out for an upset Roma Cup result are then the Adam Durrant-trained Ranger, Lark Hill galloper Settle Strada after their first win since the WA Goodwood Stakes back in August last year and Grant Williams’ La Trice Stakes winner from New Year’s Day Elite Belle all at $14.
