Dandino Leads 2015 Geelong Cup Betting Odds

The now Darren Weir-trained former Caulfield Cup runner-up Dandino is favourite to return to the winner’s stall for the first time in over two years with a Geelong Cup 2015 win in country Victoria this Wednesday.

The European import was still prepared in Britain when he travelled down under on the back of a USA St Leger win two years ago to finish second to Fawkner in his Australian debut in the 2013 Caulfield Cup.

Fifth also in that year’s Melbourne Cup over the two miles at Flemington, he hasn’t won again since that USA St Leger success but is out to break the drought as the favourite in Wednesday’s $300,000 Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m).

Due to run as Geelong Race 7 at 4:00pm (AEST), the Geelong Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have Weir’s veteran nine-year-old Dansili stallion paying $3.30 for the win but he can be had at Best Tote or SP + 20% on the day with a max bet of $50!

Dandino carries 57.5kg in the lucrative handicap clash with Ben Melham in the saddle from barrier nine, Melham aboard for the horse’s three most recent runs including a close fourth when under a length off Preferment in Flemington’s Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) on October 4.

Occupying the second line of Geelong Cup betting at $4.80 is the market mover and 59kg top weight Quest For More.

The Geelong Cup is the first run in Australia for Roger Charlton’s British visitor who missed out on a run last Saturday as the first emergency in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

The Teofilo gelding hasn’t raced since his second in the Group 2 Goodwood Cup (3219m) carrying 61.5kg on July 30, and is heading towards a run in the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) on November 3.

Two of the past five Melbourne Cup winners had their final lead-up run in the Geelong Cup with the French-trained duo of Americain (2010) and Dunaden (2011) both completing the double.

The only other single figure hope for Wednesday’s feature is Guardini ($7.50) who has been backed in early from $11.

Drawn in barrier six, into five if the sole emergency Disclaimer (4) comes out, the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained import hasn’t raced since a Group 1 over this distance at Saratoga in the USA back in late August.

He is allocated 57kg this weekend with James Winks booked for the ride and is an import to watch here.

The next best in betting representing more value at double figures but still with genuine claims at an upset Geelong Cup result include the Gai Waterhouse-trained Grafton Cup winner Bonfire ($10) coming off a sixth in Sydney’s Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) from the start of the month, John Thompson’s in-form Le Harve stallion Orbec ($11) on the rails who has eased out from $6.50 despite a Metropolitan fourth last time out and Sertorius ($13) who ran sixth in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) on Caulfield Cup Day last start.
