Mares Lead 2015 Perth Cup Odds

Two in-form mares sit top of the futures Perth Cup 2015 odds with betting markets for Ascot’s New Year’s Day feature now open at bookmakers around the country.

There are officially 44 stayers nominated for next year’s $500,000 Group 2 Golden River Developments Perth Cup (2400m), the early favourite of which is the Adam Durrant-trained Real Love.

A four-year-old daughter of Desert King, Real Love leads Perth Cup betting as the clear $2.70 top fancy through based on her ideal form over the past year.

This time in she’s won two of her four starts, finishing second in the other two runs, all at Ascot between 1400m and 2200m.

Her latest effort was an impressive two and a half-length victory over Son Of Something in the Group 3 Queen’s Cup (2200m) on December 6, an effort the bookies are tipping her to repeat when she goes up to the mile and a half on January 1.

It’s a distance she’s twice been tested over before when under the preparation of her previous trainer Grant Williams in the autumn, Real Love finishing second to Balmont Girl in the Group 3 W.A. Oaks (2400m), and then a close third after a wide run behind Respondent (1st) and Ihtsahymn (2nd) in the Group 2 W.A.T.C. Derby (2400m).

Durrant told Perth Racing he was confident she will be the one to beat in the Perth Cup following her victory last weekend, saying she had “a few lengths” on her staying rivals.

The other mare at single figures to win the Perth Cup this summer is then the Paula Wagg-trained WA Oaks winner Balmont Girl at $4.80 through Ladbrokes.

The Balmont four-year-old returned in top form this season with three top three runs, including a Group 3 win in the Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) and then a brave second when only three-quarters of a length off the winner Elite Belle in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) on November 22.

Her latest effort however left a bit to be desired when, from barrier 12 of 16, she could only manage to run five and a quarter lengths off the Chris Waller-trained champ Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m).

With a better draw and up in distance again she could bounce back in the Perth Cup though, her last run over the distance being a fourth in the WATC Derby on April 12.

The rest of the Perth Cup nominations are all at double figures but there is a logjam of chances following the clear top two.

The next best in betting are is Justin Warwick’s Blackfriars five-year-old Son Of Something ($10).

The Listed Northam Cup winner over the mile back in late October has run second in his past two runs this campaign.

The first was one length behind Global Flirt in the Listed Tattersall’s Cup (2100m) on November 22 before crossing two and a quarter off the now Perth Cup favourite Real Love in the Queen’s Cup last Saturday with Sydney’s Tommy Berry in the saddle.

Following him are then three $13 fancies in: the Fred Kersley-trained Queen’s Cup third placed eight-year-old Ask Me Nicely who was third past the post in this year’s Perth Cup, Durrant’s last start Jungle Dawn Classic winner Real Charm and Grant Williams’ Kingston Town Classic failure Respondent looking to return to his WATC Derby winning form from last prep.

At $15 are then the Neville Parnham-trained RJ Peters Stakes winner Bass Strait who ran sixth in both the Railway and Kingston Town, Durrant’s 2013 runner-up behind Talent Show Mr Moet, Ascot Gold Cup winner Pop Culture and Dan Morton’s Boulder Cup champ from September Red Blast.
