2015 Hawkesbury Gold Cup Field & Odds: Prince Cheri Narrow Favourite

It is a wide open affair for the rescheduled Hawkesbury Gold Cup 2015 running on Sunday with all but three in the field under $10 for the win including the narrow favourite Prince Cheri who returns to racing after a year away from the track.

A washout earlier in the season, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Panthers Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) runs as Hawkesbury Race 6 at 3:09pm (AEST) this Sunday.

There were 13 final acceptors for the handicap clash but two early scratchings from major stables saw the Joe Pride-trained Keep Cool (6) and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Role Model (4) come out of the line-up leaving 11 to face off.

Seven of those are at single figures in the latest Hawkesbury Gold Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au for the win, narrow favourite at $4 being the David Vandyke-trained Lando six-year-old Prince Cheri.

The French import is drawn wide with Jay Ford riding on 58.5kg but is still considered the one to beat by the bookies after he won back-to-back Randwick trials over 1200m last month ahead of his first run in over a year.

His last official start under race conditions was in last year’s Listed Scone Cup (1600m) when fourth to Cameo, Sunday his first look at the Hawkesbury track.

Following Prince Cheri in the Hawkesbury Gold Cup betting markets are then the Chris Waller-trained stablemates Tales Of Grimm ($6) and Rugged Cross ($7).

Kerrin McEvoy has the ride on Distorted Humor six-year-old Tales Of Grimm who won this year’s Scone Cup over the mile last time out on May 15 carrying 54kg, three kilos less than his 57kg allocation for Sunday.

Rugged Cross is also on 57kg for the Hawkesbury clash, the British import third to You’ll Never in a Rosehill clash over 1400m last Saturday putting him on the short back-up.

Also at $7 for the win is the nicely-drawn Sons Of John on the 54kg minimum and jumping from barrier three on the back of an 1800m win at Randwick last month, the drop back to a mile the test here for the local Oratorio four-year-old.

The next best in betting are then the Waterhouse-trained 59kg top weight Bonfire ($8) who is first-up not having raced since the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) at Caulfield last October and another of Waller’s other hope Amovatio ($8.50) on the rails.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 is then Waller’s last start 1400m winner in the wet at Randwick on May 23 Beyond Thankful ($9) to be ridden by Glyn Schofield from barrier two.
