Taiyoo Favourite in 2015 Adelaide Cup Odds

The feature event running at Morphettville this Monday is the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m), which has attracted a field of 15 stayers.

Of those 15 horses set to tackle the two mile trip, just four are offering single figure odds in the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au. To no one’s surprise, Taiyoo leads the field at odds of $3.50.

The Darren Weir-trained gelding is kicking on after winning the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) at the track proper last Saturday. Taiyoo began well and enjoyed a good trip in fourth place before moving up outside the leader at the 1200m. He went to the front on straightening and after quite a battle got the upper hand and drew clear to win.

It was the fifth straight win for Taiyoo, who also won the Listed Torney Night Cup (2500m) on February 20, who was run an extensive campaign that dates back to October. Since then the gelding has had 12 starts, seven of which were wins.

Taiyoo will have to overcome a wide start from gate 14 (of 15) in the 2015 Adelaide Cup and carry the top weight of 59kg, which is two and a half kilos more than he won the Lord Reims on.

The gelding will face some fierce rivals on Monday, including the three offering single figure odds.

  • #3 Renew ($5) – The former British stayer will get his second start this campaign in the Adelaide Cup after not faring well in the Torney Night Cup – the gelding was three lengths off Taiyoo in sixth place – but will relish a return to two miles. Renew was brought to Australia in the spring and aimed towards the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m), however end of the field finishes in both the Group 2 Herbert Power (2400m) and Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) put an end to this plan. Renew was transferred to the care of Archie Alexander and the gelding won the Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) on November 15. He will enjoy a good jump from barrier two with Chris Symons to ride in the Adelaide Cup.
  • #5 Lucky Lucky Lucky ($5) – One of two horses saddled by Tony McEvoy in the race, Lucky Lucky Lucky will jump from barrier 12 with champion hoop Kerrin McEvoy. The five-year-old gelding has finished first two in all three of his starts since transferring to McEvoy’s stables in January, which includes running second to Taiyoo in the Lord Reims. Lucky Lucky Lucky challenged strongly rounding the home turn and fought on hard to finish just half a length away in second place.
  • #8 Crime Fighter ($7)Peter Moody’s four-year-old gelding is the market mover of the field after his price shortened from $8. Crime Fighter was last seen running a close second to Taiyoo in the Torney Night Cup, in which he kept on battling on well in the straight. The gelding will jump from barrier six with Glen Boss as jockey.
