Weir Duo Dominate 2016 Adelaide Cup Betting Odds

Darren Weir heads to Morphettville Racecourse on Monday launching a dual-pronged attack on the Adelaide Cup 2016 with the top two in betting Signoff and Real Love.

Running as Morphettville Race 7 at 4:15pm (local), this year’s $400,000 Group 1 Adelaide Cup (3200m) field is near capacity with 18 runners including the Weir-trained stablemates.

Signoff carries the 59kg top weight and also tops the latest Adelaide Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.05 to win his third race from as many starts at the track.

He ran the ideal Adelaide Cup trial last Saturday winning the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) by a runaway six and a half lengths, and even going up two kilos for Monday’s two mile feature he looks hard to beat.

Apprentice Harry Coffey retains the ride in the non-claiming classic and Signoff should get a lovely run from barrier two.

His biggest danger according to the Adelaide Cup betting markets is Perth expat Real Love, the former Perth Cup winning mare having her fourth start for Melbourne Cup winning horseman Weir.

She broke through for her first Melbourne win at Flemington last Saturday in the Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m) and looked impressive doing so.

After the weekend the Desert King five-year-old lines-up at Morphettville for the first time and while second in the Adelaide Cup weights, she actually drops a kilo from her Roy Higgins winning weight down to 55.5kg.

Real Love is $3.50 in betting with Brad Rawiller jumping aboard again from a wider barrier 12 draw.

Despite the bumper line-up for this autumn’s Adelaide Cup, no other runners are at single figures outside of Weir’s dominant duo.

The next best in the markets then out to score the upset Adelaide Cup result at $12 is Swacadelic in barrier 14 with Kerrin McEvoy making the trip for the ride on Aaron Purcell-trained import.

A five-year-old son of Adlerflug, Swacadelic won the Listed Torney Cup (2500m) last time out on February 19 where he defeated Signoff by a narrow margin at Moonee Valley.

He hasn’t had another run since, so for the rematch Signoff boasts the fitness edge, but Swacadelic can’t be ruled out as he gets in on a nice 53.5kg light weight.

Just behind him in the latest odds are Last Wish ($15), Jim’s Journey ($18) and Up Cups ($19) who round out the hopes under $20 for the win.

Tony McEvoy prepares Guillotine gelding who shoots for a third straight win after February victories over 2400m and 2500m at Sandown-Hillside and Moonee Valley respectively.

The latest saw the five-year-old carry 57kg to victory and he will appreciate the big drop back to 53kg this weekend with Sam Clipperton riding from barrier six in Last Wish’s Group race debut at his 23rd career start.

Jim’s Journey also gets in on the 53kg minimum in this year’s Adelaide Cup, the Peter Blanch-trained local Good Journey four-year-old looking to keep the trophy at home in South Australia.

A progressive type, the galloper has won five of his 18 starts to date, four of which were achieved at Morphettville.

He hasn’t won since late January, but his fourth to Signoff in the Lord Reims Stakes last time out was credible when carrying 3.5kg more than his allocation for Monday’s rematch.

Up Cups meanwhile is in flying form for his Tasmanian trainer David Brunton, the Helike five-year-old making the trip from the Apple Isle after winning his last four on the trot.

The latest two were over the mile and a half in Group 3 class when winning the Hobart Cup – Launceston Cup double.
