Danchai Leads 2015 Winter Cup Betting Markets

Imported galloper Danchai has opened narrow favourite in the Winter Cup 2015 betting markets for the sole black type race in Australia this weekend with trainer Chris Waller shooting for back-to-back wins in the Rosehill Gardens showdown.

Last year Waller trained the first four past the post and this weekend he’s back with a trio of runners in the $100,000 Listed Ronald McDonald House Westmead Winter Cup (2400m), which runs as Race 4 at 1:45pm (AEST).

Just seven horses are in the mix and it is the rails-drawn Danchai in barrier one with Hugh Bowman riding on 55.5kg who leads the current Winter Cup odds at $2.40.

Last time out the Authorized six-year-old improved on a third over 1800m at Rosehill to win the Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m) on June 13 defeating Banca Mo by a neck.

There wasn’t much in the winning margin but the extra metres suited the grey gelding who is up in distance again this weekend and also up in weights from the 54kg Ipswich Cup winning weight.

Hot on Danchai’s heels in the ATC Winter Cup betting odds for Saturday through Ladbrokes.com.au is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained top weight Bonfire at $2.70.

Drawn one outside of Danchai in barrier two with Danny Beasley booked for the ride, which he could then keep in the $150,000 Listed Grafton Cup (2350m) on July 9, the Manduro six-year-old is allocated a hefty 59kg.

Bonfire is second-up on the weekend after a solid resuming run when fourth behind Sons Of John in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) over the mile on June 7, the step up in distance to suit the Group 3 placegetter who also had 59kg on his back that run.

Two others in the small Winter Cup field and markets are also under $10 for the win with Dream Folk ($6.50) and Our Voodoo Prince ($8) drawn in the outside barriers six and seven respectively.

Tye Angland won the Winter Cup for Waller last year aboard Secessio (2014) and will look to repeat the feat 12 months on aboard the in-form Our Voodoo Prince.

A seven-year-old son of Kingmambo, Our Voodoo Prince ran third to Sense Of Occasion two back at Randwick in the Listed WJ McKell Cup (2400m) run on a Heavy (9) and was far from disgraced over the two miles in the Stayers Cup (3200m) last start on June 6.

He’s back in distance again for the Winter Cup and how he handles the drop back will be key to his chances over the 2400m, which he has a decent record of a win and three thirds from eight previous runs.

Gregory Hickman prepares Dream Folk who has apprentice Winona Costin aboard on the 54kg minimum, the Dream Ballad five-year-old coming off a third behind Reigning when beaten only a quarter-length over 2000m at Rosehill on June 13.

The horse is also 2015 Grafton Cup-bound next month like many in the Winter Cup line-up and is at much shorter odds than the $51 they jumped at last time out.

The next best in betting at $12 and the value bet in the race is Kapour in gate four with jockey Kerrin McEvoy riding the Ciaron Maher-trained Toylsome five-year-old who is out to improve on a sixth behind Digitalism over 2040m at Moonee Valley early in the month.
