2016 Tattersall’s Cup Betting Tips & Update

A diminutive but classy field of stayers face off in Saturday’s Tattersall’s Cup 2016, betting tips for the Eagle Farm clash found below.

Running as Race 6 at 1:57pm (AEST) on Tattersall’s Tiara Day this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival, just eight runners are engaged for the $200,000 Group 3 Carlton Mid Tattersall’s Cup Handicap (2200m).

Of those the best in the current Tattersall’s Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.50 for the win in a wide open market is the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Tuchanchoo out to extend his winning streak to four straight.

Jumping from gate four on the 54kg minimum, the Pentire six-year-old won at Warwick Farm over 2200m in early March before two more wins over 1600m and 2000m respectively this campaign.

His latest saw him carry 58kg to victory at Randwick on June 11, so with four kilos less and winning form over Saturday’s 2200m distance, he could be hard to hold out.

As mentioned there are plenty of livewire hopes in the Tattersall’s Cup betting markets this year with the favourite followed closely by the likes of last start Group 2 Brisbane Cup winner over the mile and a half Benzini ($3.70) and Chris Waller’s 59.5kg top weight Junoob ($4.20) coming off a third in the same lead-up from Stradbroke Day a fortnight ago.

So who should you back and who should you sack in an exciting edition of the Tattersall’s Cup this weekend?


#1 Junoob ($4.20)

Waller’s veteran eight-year-old is allocated the top weight, but actually gets a turnaround on his last start conqueror Benzini here. He had 58.5kg to the winner’s 54.5kg when running a close third in the Brisbane Cup, but goes up just a kilo while Benzini is charged with carrying 58kg for the rematch. That could be the deciding factor with Blake Shinn staying on and Junoob boasting winning form over the 2200m.


#4 Malice ($7)

On his day John O’Shea’s Toefilo gelding has the right kind of form to win this. His lead-up in shorter-distance features over the season has been excellent including thirds in the Scone Cup and Lord Mayors Cup. Last time out he ran fourth in the Listed The Wayne Wilson Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm, and while he is proven only up to 2000m to date, think he can dig in here with Damian Browne aboard and be competitive.


#2 Benzini ($3.70)

Benzini was good winning the Group 2 Brisbane Cup last time out over 200m further, but does go up 3.5kg so needs to prove his class under those kilos. Still plenty to like from the Kiwi raider who will relish the distance and has Rosie Myers continuing her association in the saddle of the Tale Of The Cat six-year-old.
