Real Love Leads 2014 Queen’s Cup Betting

A large field of 15 stayers will line up at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday for the newly-promoted Group 3 Queen’s Cup (2200m), one of six black-type races running in support of the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic.

Despite the large field size, only two of the runners are offering single figure odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, which means punters have a better chance at backing the winner at lucrative double digit odds.

The Adam Durrant-trained Real Love is the firm favourite at $2.70 after finishing runner-up in the Listed Carbine Club Of WA Stakes (1400m) last time out. The four-year-old mare is also the fourth emergency for the Kingston Town Classic but it’s unlikely she’ll make the field.

The four-year-old has finished top three in eight of her ten career starts, including coming second in the Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) and third in the Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) back in the autumn.

This experienced stayer will jump from barrier six with William Pike, carrying the minimum weight of 55kg.

The only other horse offering single figure odds is Son Of Something at $4.40. The Justin Warwick-trained gelding will jump from barrier three with champion hoop Tommy Berry on board.

Son Of Something only made the step up to black-type racing three starts ago, winning the Listed Northam Cup (1600m) on his debut. He then ran wide in the Listed Gold Cup (1800m), finishing midfield in eighth place before coming second in the Listed Tattersall’s Cup (2100m) last time out, just one length behind the winner Global Flirt.

With the single figure hopefuls out of the way, there are plenty of horses offering lucrative double figure odds that could easily cause an upset and win the 2014 Queen’s Cup, rewarding punters with a hefty win.

Tattersall’s Cup winner Global Flirt is currently paying $15 to win after drawing wide in barrier 11. The eight-year-old is the second of three runners saddled by Warwick, including Son Of Something and Lucciola ($13).

Global Flirt finished third last in the Ascot Gold Cup first up this campaign but turned it around in great fashion the next time out to win the Tattersall’s Cup. She also previously won twice over the 2200m of the Queen’s Cup, winning both a Benchmark 68 and Listed Towton Cup back in 2012.

Jemma Hayman’s Knightlike ($31) has scored the inside run from barrier one, carrying the minimum weight under Alan Kennedy while Tattersall’s Cup minor placer Kirov Boy is available for $13.

New customers will receive up to $100 in a bonus match on their first bet with the online bookmaker.
