Malice Tops 2014 ATC Cup Odds

John O’Shea’s last start Rosehill winner Malice returns to the track this weekend for a shot at the ATC Cup 2014, odds for which the in-form four-year-old leads.

The Teofilo gelding posted his fourth career win on November 15 when beating a similar field to that which he faces on Saturday over 1900m.

This weekend he steps up in class for the $100,000 Listed ATC Cup (2000m), Malice again getting in on the 54kg minimum with Sam Clipperton to ride from the inside barrier.

With a nice weight, good hoop and gate one all working to his advantage Malice has opened top of the ATC Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.60 to win.

It’s a wide open ATC Cup betting market this year however with five of his nine rivals all also under $10 to win with:

  • #5 Beyond Thankful ($4.60) – Chris Waller-trained Whipper gelding, has been on the improve this time in including his fourth behind Malice a fortnight ago. Was only half a length off the winner that day and should get a better run from out in seven after the inside alley didn’t work to his advantage in that run.
  • #2 Midsummer Sun ($4.80) – Sam Kavanagh’s Monsun gelding ran second behind Malice in the lead-up and is well supported to perhaps turn the tables in round two as they step up in distance. Drops from 57kg to 56.5kg, while Malice stays on the same weight, so that should give him a bit of upside.
  • #7 Metaphorical ($5.50) – Peter Moody’s Dylan Thomas mare may be drawn in the outside alley (10) but over 2000m there’s time to overcome. She’s been over the distance twice and won once, last start at Moonee Valley on November 14 against her own kind carrying 57kg. Drops to 54kg for this and Dwayne Dunn comes aboard – two big ticks.
  • #3 Gallatin ($8.50) – Goldolphin’s second representative, Tommy Berry rides this Street Cry four-year-old who races for the first time since a close fourth when under a length off the winner in the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m) on September 27. First-up over 2000m should be finishing off well, nice bet for a top three finish.
  • #1 Permit ($9) – Waller’s veteran eight-year-old failed in this race 12 months ago but is going great guns despite his age after a close first-up third behind Malice and Midsummer Sun, both of who he faces again here. He’ll be better second-up (7-1-3-0) and extra metres suit as well.
