Illuminated Lights Up 2015 Ascot Gold Cup Field & Odds

Adam Durrant’s in-form four-year-old Illuminated is the clear favourite in Ascot Gold Cup 2015 betting in Perth on Saturday as he shoots for his fourth win on the trot in the black-type staying clash.

Three races on the Lee Steere Stakes Day program at Ascot Racecourse hold black-type status this weekend including the $100,000 Listed Ascot Gold Cup (1800m) that is set to run as Race 7 at 4:25pm (local time).

Getting in on the 54kg minimum and drawn well in barrier six for WA’s top hoop William Pike, Medaglia D’Oro gelding Illuminated is a two-time winner at the track from seven starts including a victory over 1800m here on October 24.

Carrying 2.5km more than his Ascot Gold Cup weight and drawn the outside alley in a 14-starter field, Illuminated got the jump done in his first look at further than a mile this time in.

He has been out as far as 2200m however, but was a well-beaten ninth in the Listed Melvista Stakes in late April over that distance.

The bookies rate the frontrunner as the one to beat and handle the class rise based on his ace lead-up and in the latest Ascot Gold Cup odds at he is at a short $2.10 for the win.

Three other hopes in the Ascot Gold Cup betting markets are also under double figures including Young Lionel ($4.40) to be ridden by Jarrad Noske from gate nine.

Lou Luciani’s 44-start veteran is a seven-year-old son of Young Lionel and comes off a half-length victory in the Listed Northam Cup (1600m) with Noske aboard.

Young Lionel carried 56kg that day, the same weight he is allocated this weekend shooting for back-to-back Listed wins, and boasts winning form up to 2100m so the step up to 1800m shouldn’t be a problem.

The next best fancied are Ben Pearce’s Dubai Destination six-year-old Raising Dubai ($7) who ran three and a half lengths away fourth in the Northam Cup and the rails-drawn Dark Musket ($8) who won the Listed Belmont Classic (2200m) back in July.

The Darren McAuliffe-trained Snippetson six-year-old Rebelson ($13) is another notable hope coming off a fifth in the Northam Cup while the early Ascot Gold Cup market mover is Woodsville ($18).

Third in the Listed Boulder Cup (2100m) two back, Jeff Noske’s Blackfriars seven-year-old was last seen winning the Listed Kalgoorlie Cup (2300m) on September 27, but will be better with a run under his belt post-Saturday’s assignment.

Heading the weights with 59kg is the $101 roughie shot, Pinjarra Cup winner from late March Kirov Boy looking to emulate this year’s Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance who won Flemington’s famous two mile feature on Tuesday at that price.
