Signoff Leads Early 2015 Sydney Cup Betting

Following a fine fourth in the Melbourne Cup during the spring, the Darren Weir-trained Signoff has opened top of the futures Sydney Cup 2015 odds for this autumn.

An ultra-consistent Authorized gelding, five-year-old Signoff has won seven of his 14 starts to date.

He worked his way up through the ranks last campaign running well in races like the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) when second to Big Memory, the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) when third to Contributer and the Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) on Derby Day that he won by an impressive two and a half lengths.

Last start he raced in the world’s richest handicap and had a lovely run when fourth behind German raider Protectionist in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) on the first Tuesday of November.

Now the bookmakers are tipping him to enjoy another strong season this time during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival targeting the $1.6 million Group 1 Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m) at Royal Randwick on April 11.

All-in Sydney Cup odds at have Signoff as the equal $7 favourite along with the Chris Waller-trained Who Shot Thebarman.

New Zealand import Who Shot Thebarman also ran well in the Melbourne Cup beating Signoff home by one when third in a top staying effort.

Winner of the Group 1 Auckland Cup (320m) in New Zealand before joining Waller in Sydney last year, the Yamanin Vital gelding contested last year’s Sydney Cup but could only manage to finish ninth behind The Offer.

There are then two other single-figure hopes in the current Sydney Cup futures markets with the reigning Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist and triple Melbourne Cup runner-up Red Cadeaux both at a quote of $9.

Monsun stallion Protectionist is now prepared at Newcastle by Kris Lees having been transferred down under by his Australian Bloodstock connections who are looking at an Australian Cup bid before the Sydney Cup this autumn.

Red Cadeaux meanwhile could be racing in Australia again either in the autumn or the spring, Ed Dunlop’s British stayer boasting an excellent 3200m record on Aussie soil.

The next best in Sydney Cup betting at this stage are then the David Payne-trained import Terrubi ($10) who is a Group 2 winner in France but unraced in Australia and Dermot Weld’s Group 1 placed Irish mare Pale Mimosa ($13).

Three stayers also pay $15 to win with Herbert Power winner Big Memory, Hong Kong galloper Dominant and the defending Sydney Cup winner The Offer for Gai Waterhouse.

At $17 the Lloyd Williams-owned import Almandin, last year’s Caulfield Cup third placegetter Lucia Valentina and Kris Lees’ French import Singing then round out the hopes under $20 in the markets.

Stay tuned to over the coming months for all the latest on the Sydney Cup nominations, field and betting updates.
