Brambles Kept Safe in David Jones Cup Betting 2014

Despite looking like gaining a Caulfield Cup start on Saturday the bookies are taking no chances with Brambles for his ‘Plan B’, Peter Moody’s stayer the favourite in 2014 David Jones Cup betting.

UPDATE: Brambles has been scratched form the David Jones Cup after gaining a place in the 2014 Caulfield Cup field.

The six-year-old son of Savabeel is the first emergency for this year’s $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) and is also accepted as a back-up for the $150,000 Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) at the meeting.

Talk of Gris Caro, suffering from lameness in his off foreleg, being scratched from the 18-starter Caulfield Cup field following a vet test this afternoon has money coming for Brambles in Caulfield Cup betting at

Over the week he’s firmed in from $26 to $15 to win the world’s richest mile and a half handicap.

Should the Jake Stephens-trained Naturalism Stakes winner Gris Caro pass his fitness test however and line-up in Saturday’s major then it is the David Jones Cup where Brambles will be look for a consolidating win.

He currently dominates the David Jones Cup odds at a quote of $3.50 drawn in barrier five of 13 with Luke Nolen who will also ride him in the Caulfield Cup if he sneaks on, in the saddle.

Winner of the 2012 Queensland Derby as a three-year-old, a tendon injury saw Brambles miss nearly two years of racing before he came back this year.

Two back he beat fellow Caulfield Cup hope Big Memory in a Flemington handicap over 1700m carrying 60kg before an eye-catching last start third behind Lucia Valentina and the fellow Moody-trained Lidari in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m).

The Kris Lees-trained Turnbull Stakes winning mare Lucia Valentina is now the $4.60 top pick in the Caulfield Cup odds at Ladbrokes while Lidari is a $13 chance in Saturday’s Group 1 feature.

If Brambles comes out of the David Jones Cup field then it will be Signoff who starts favourite.

The Darren Weir-trained Authorized gelding pays $4.40 to win currently having run a brave second to Big Memory in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) here last Saturday.

With the close defeat he narrowly missed out on a run in the Caulfield Cup field but has a top chance of a second tier trophy in Caulfield Race 7.

There are then three other single figure hopes to win the David Jones Cup this year including UK import Nobel Protector ($7.50).

Getting in on the 54kg minimum, Robert Smerdon’s local Haafhd mare will be ridden by Craig Williams as she makes her Australian race debut here not having raced since a black-type third over 2400m at York on August 21.

The others under $10 in betting are then Contributer ($8) carrying the 57kg second top weight and Kingdoms ($9.50) in the outside barrier.

The John O’Shea-trained High Chaparral entire Contributer is another European import starting down under for the first time, the consistent Godolphin-owned galloper having won four of his nine starts so far including the Listed Wolferton Handicap (2000m) at Ascot on June 20.

Fellow High Chaparral five-year-old Kingdoms has been in good form this season including a fourth last time out behind Junoob in the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) in Sydney.

Also in the mix at more generous odds are the likes of the Chris Waller-trained Craven Plate third placed Vilanova ($10) and local Commands seven-year-old Commanding Time ($11) drawn in barriers two and one respectively.
