2014 Geelong Cup Betting Update

A field of 13 stayers will run in the 2014 Geelong Cup on Wednesday, offering punters a variety of betting options and the chance to back a winner.

The Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) will run as Race 7 at 4:00pm (AEDT) with a prize pool of $300,000.

More than half of the field is currently offering single figure odds for the race at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by More Than Sacred at $5.50.

Despite drawing barrier 13, which means the mare will have to overcome a start from the widest barrier, More Than Sacred is favourite to win the 2014 Geelong Cup after a fast-finishing run last time out in the Listed Cranbourne Cup (2025m), which saw her finish in second place.

The five-year-old is more than adept at the 2400m distance of the Geelong Cup, having won three times at the distance in New Zealand, last of which was the Group 3 Waikato Times Gold Cup (2400m) in December, 2013.

There are another six single figure hopefuls in the Geelong Cup betting market, with a number of well-priced runners for punters to choose from.

Sertorius ($6) will carry the topweight of 58kg in the race, up to four kilos heavier than his rivals, and has also drawn wide in barrier 11.

The seven-year-old has had a disappointing spring season, after finishing midfield in all three of his Group One starts. Ryan Maloney, who rode Sertorius home to third in the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) back in April will partner the gelding once again. A step up in distance after racing over a mile-mile and a half will also likely please the successful stayer.

Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) runner-up Zanbagh ($6.50) will have a great run from midfield after drawing barrier six. The mare will carry just 54kg in the race, three kilos less than her last three starts.

Zanbagh hit the line well her last time out in the Benalla Cup (2046m) in which she finished third and will appreciate the step up to 2400m distance.

The Danny O’Brien-trained Caravan Rolls On ($7) will get a good start from barrier two with Craig Williams to ride. The seven-year-old has only had two starts since winning the Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) last November, neither of which he ran well in.

Shoreham ($7.50) will need to turn around a seventh in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) with the same weight and jockey. He will however enjoy a start two gates in from barrier 10.

Ciaron Maher’s Marksmanship ($8) will enjoy the inside run with champion jockey Kerrin McEvoy after drawing barrier one. The seven-year-old is proven successful over the distance after coming third in the Group 3 Bart Cummings (2520m) last time out.

Like A Carousel ($9) is the final single figure hopeful, and will jump from barrier 12 with Craig Newitt in the saddle. The gelding is the only last-start winner on the field following a Listed Harry White Classic (2400m) win last month, clear of his rivals by 1.5 lengths.
