Moriarty Leads Tight Eagle Farm Cup 2015 Odds

Chris Waller’s defending champion Moriarty holds a narrow lead over a red hot 2015 Eagle Farm Cup betting market for one of the major support acts on the Queensland Oaks Day program in Brisbane this weekend.

Twelve months ago the now seven-year-old son of Clodovil saluted in the same race he runs in on Saturday, Moriarty drawn on the rails in a small seven starter field for this weekend’s $250,000 Group 2 Pages Event Equipment Hire Eagle Farm Cup (2200m).

Running as Doomben Race 4 at 1:57pm (AEST) the Eagle Farm Cup field this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival is dominated by Waller-trained hopes with five of the seven set to line up hailing from his star Sydney stables.

Moriarty pays $3.90 in the latest Eagle Farm Cup odds at to go back to back in the weight-for-age showdown, Blake Shinn aboard the gelding in place of Hugh Bowman who rode him to a last start fourth in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) at the track on May 9.

Hot on the reigning champ’s heels in this year’s Eagle Farm Cup betting markets paying $4 for the win and drawn one outside of his stablemate in gate two is Dansili eight-year-old Foreteller.

Having his incredible 55th career start, Foreteller ran fourth two back behind Leebaz in the Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes (1800m) on the Gold Coast before a sixth finishing four lengths off Pornichet in the Doomben Cup last time out ahead of his fourth run at Doomben.

The next best in betting at $4.60 is then the in-form young Kiwi galloper Werther in barrier six, the Andrew Campbell-trained Tavistock three-year-old having just his second run down under.

A Group 2 winner back in New Zealand the up-and-coming gelding debuted in Australia on May 9 at Morphettville and ran a brave second to star Perth-based filly Delicacy in the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m), Saturday then a drop back in distance for the youngest horse in the Eagle Farm Cup line-up.

Another two runners are also at single figures in the open affair with market mover I’m Imposing ($6.50 into $6) and Index Linked ($6 out to $6.50) drawn in barriers seven and four respectively.

Waller trains both with veteran nine-year-old I’m Imposing coming off a string of third place finishes in the traditional lead-up races including the Doomben Cup and then last weekend’s Lord Mayor’s Cup, while Index Linked was last seen winning the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) by a mere nose a fortnight ago at the Sunshine Coast.

There are no blowouts in the Eagle Farm Cup betting markets either with the last two in the markets both also boasting genuine claims and being kept fairly safe by the bookies with Epingle ($10) and Hawkspur ($11) the longest priced of the runners.

Hugh Bowman rides Michael Kent’s recent Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2200m) winning mare Epingle on the weekend, the Pins seven-year-old looking to finish closer than her ninth in the Doomben Cup last time out.

Hawkspur meanwhile has Group 1 winning form in Queensland back as a three-year-old winning the 2013 Queensland Derby but hasn’t won a race since the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in September last year.
