Running as Sunshine Coast Race 6 at 3:21pm (AEST), this year’s $150,000 Listed Hutchinson Builders Queensland Cup (3200m) features a final field of just nine stayers.

It is a wide open Queensland Cup betting market with six of those nine at single figures through Ladbrokes.com.au including the current $3.40 favourite Major Major in gate seven with Tim Bell in the saddle.

Trained in Sydney by Bryce Heys, Encosta De Lago six-year-old Major Major goes up from 54kg last time out when sixth to Escado in the Group 3 Tatt’s Cup (2400m) at the Gold Coast on June 20 to 58kg for the Queensland Cup.

The galloper ran fifth to Iggi Pop in the Queensland Cup last year, run at its traditional Eagle Farm home, and is looking to improve on that at his second look at the distance.

The others right up in the markets are Steve Hodge’s last start Stayers Cup winner over the distance Lovethebeaches ($4.80) and third in that same 3200m lead-up Husson Choice ($5.50) who was also third over 2600m at Randwick last time out.

With so many livewire chances at similar odds for the win, see below for our insider Queensland Cup tips that you can lock in online at Ladbrokes.com.au – home of the $500 bonus welcome bet offer for new depositing players!


#1 Lovethebeaches ($4.80)

Paul King rides this daughter of Dubai Destination from the outside alley with the six-year-old coming off a win over the same 3200m distance at Royal Randwick in the Stayers Cup back in early June. That was an absolute bolt in as she finished five lengths in front of runner-up Our Voodoo Prince, an effort she can repeat this time in Queensland with the right run. If King lets her roll along as she did in the big Sydney win, nothing will catch her in this field.


#3 Mister Impatience ($6.50)

Market mover in from $8, Michael Moroney’s Hernando five-year-old is drawn the rails and won over 3000m at Ballarat with the same weight in late May by an all-too-easy seven lengths. Last time out was dropped back to 2600m and run on a Heavy (10) at Randwick, also carrying 58kg, and finished fourth to Soviet Courage. Should appreciate stepping back up in distance and while is up in class is a tough galloper that ticks plenty of boxes.


#5 Pop ‘N’ Scotch ($6)

Liam Birchley’s Husson four-year-old was runner-up in last year’s Queensland Cup but to date has only won up to 2200m. Has had three previous runs at the track, for just the one third place finish. Two back he won over 2150m at Ipswich before a Tatt’s Cup 10th when stepped up in class last time out. Well beaten that day but think they are the value improver in the market who should sneak in for a place.
