Derryn Heads Pre-Field Kingsford-Smith Cup Odds 2017

Lindsay Park’s class colt Derryn is the pre-field favourite in 2017 Kingsford-Smith Cup betting ahead of the race formerly known as the BTC Cup running in Brisbane on Saturday.

The action of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival moves to Eagle Farm Racecourse this weekend with the meeting headlined by the new-look $700,000 Group 1 Darley Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m).

Of the official 64 nominations taken for the weight-for-age feature last month, it is three-year-old Derryn leading all-in Kingsford-Smith Cup odds online at

At a current quote of $6, the recent Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint winner in Sydney is out to be the first three-year-old to take out the race since Your Song (2013).

The form and history lines on the old BTC Cup are hard to follow into the Kingsford-Smith Cup however as the race is contested at a different time of the carnival and over a longer distance.

Last time out Derryn put the writing on the wall for a big showing in Queensland with his brave third, beaten under a length by the winner Redzel in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m).

Saturday will test his ability over more metres as he has only won up to 1200m to date, but the bookies are taking no chances after the good show at Doomben.

Following closely in the latest Kingsford-Smith Cup betting markets are then Clearly Innocent ($7.50) and Counterattack ($8).

Newcastle’s Kris Lees won last Saturday’s Doomben Cup with Sense Of Occasion and could be in line for back-to-back Brisbane Group 1 victories with Clearly Innocent set for the Kingsford-Smith Cup.

A five-year-old son of Not A Single Doubt, the gelding comes off a last start black-type win by over two lengths over the distance (1300m) at Scone in mid-May.

Counterattack is a four-year-old Redoute’s Choice stallion prepared by Chris Waller.

If the Doomben 10,000 form is the one to follow for the Kingsford-Smith Cup, then Counterattack is there to frank it having run a brave second in the lead-up.

Counterattack won last year’s Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) on this day when things took place at Doomben, before a seventh in his only Eagle Farm run to date in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

After a big two and a quarter-length win in the wet in the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) last Saturday on Doomben Cup Day, the bookies are also now taking no chances with the Mick Bell-trained mudlark Jungle Edge.

The six-year-old, who is a Group 1 placegetter and Group 3 winner in Sydney from the autumn carnival, blitzed the field in the last and could be up for a seven day back-up into the Kingsford-Smith Cup field this weekend.

Joining Jungle Edge at a current $11 quote in the Kingsford-Smith Cup markets is Music Magnate from the stables of Bjorn Baker.

The Group 1 winning Written Tycoon gelding won the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm two back before things went amiss when he ran dead last (13th) in the Doomben 10,000.

Godolphin’s Arrowfield Sprint third placed colt Impending, Waller’s returning Pins four-year-old Mackintosh and last year’s Stradbroke Handicap winner Under The Louvre are the other early fancies ahead of final acceptances all at $13 for the win.

The official Kingsford-Smith Cup 2017 field and barriers are due for release on Wednesday, with updated markets to follow at
