2016 QTC Cup Tips & Betting Update

The rescheduled QTC Cup 2016 takes place at Eagle Farm on Saturday as part of an extended Stradbroke Handicap Day in Brisbane, betting tips and the latest odds for the sprint showdown found below.

Due to run as Eagle Farm Race 5 at 1:05pm (AEST), the $175,000 Group 2 Mirvac QTC Cup (1300m) field will run at capacity with the first emergency Trubia (18) coming in for the scratched Danish Twist (7).

Sitting top of the updated QTC Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $6 for the win is the Gerald Ryan-trained Spill The Beans who is drawn wide (16 possibly into 13) and comes off nice NSW lead-up form.

The four-time winning Snitzel colt won the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) two back before a devastatingly close second in Scone’s Inglis Guineas (1400m) in mid-May.

He’s yet to race in Queensland but drops from 56.5kg last start to 53kg on the weekend and the 1300m will suit.

It’s a close QTC Cup betting market this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and the other top fancies include market mover Federal ($7) prepared by John O’Shea, the Joe Pride-trained rails-drawn Target In Sight ($7) down in class of a Group 1 BTC Cup sixth, Peter & Paul Snowden’s Group 3 BRC Sprint winner last time out Snippets Land ($7.50) and New Zealand-trained mare Perfect Fit ($7.50) shooting for four wins on the trot.

So will one of the single-figure hopes get the job done or is there an upset QTC Cup result pending this weekend from the likes of Darren Weir’s Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Stratum Star ($12) or the Peter Robl-trained Choisir mare Eloping ($14)?


#6 Perfect Fit ($7.50)

Really like the form back in New Zealand of this Kiwi visitor who is looking to continue the gun run when she debuts down under. The Ken & Bev Kelso-trained Elusive City mare has won her past three on the trot earlier in the season including the Group 1 Breeders Stakes (1600m) over the mile in early April. She’s been freshened-up since and is first-up on Saturday, the four-year-old boasting a top first-up record of three wins and two thirds from five runs to date. She overcame gate 15 of 15 and 57kg to win the Group 1 back home last start and looks well placed with 53kg from gate 11 on the weekend.


#2 Target In Sight ($7)

Pride’s Group 3 winner gets the inside run from barrier one out to break a winning drought going back to March last year. He’s raced well since then however including a close sixth last time out in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben on May 14 behind Malaguerra when beaten only 2.1 lengths carrying 58.5kg. He gets more distance and space at Eagle Farm on the weekend, faces a lower class of rivals and drops to 56kg so can be competitive.


#3 That’s A Good Idea ($15)

Like the price on Team Snowden’s in-form Flying Spur six-year-old who ran third to Straddie hopeful Kaepernick in the Listed Ortensia Stakes (1100m) at Scone in mid-May before a last start win at Randwick a fortnight ago. He’s got a strong record of a win and two thirds from three previous runs over 1300m and comes into the race in the right form.
