2010 Sydney Cup Final Field & Preview

This Saturday the final race meeting of the coveted Sydney autumn carnival will take place with the day?s main attraction being the $400,000 Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m).

The 2010 Sydney Cup has attracted an excellent 12-horse final field boasting many of the nation?s most exciting stayers.

It is one of the most open fields in years, with eight of the 12 contenders at single figure odds, paying between $6 and $9 for a win currently with Ladbrokes.com.au.

At the moment the pre-race favourite is the Bart Cummings-trained Precedence. Awarded a 1.5kg penalty, Precedence has drawn ideally with barrier four and will be ridden by the in-form Luke Nolen.

The Zabeel gelding is coming off a less than ideal fifth place finish in the Group 2 Chairman?s Handicap (2600m), but is still receiving lots of support from the punters.

Winner of the Chairman?s Handicap, Jessicabeel, is currently installed as the $7 second-elect. The John O?Shea-trained mare a half-sister to Precedence, also sired from Zabeel.

A winner of four of her 12 starts, Jessicabeel has drawn out wide in barrier 11 on Saturday and will have Craig Newitt aboard.

The close third-favourite at $7.50 for the 2010 Sydney Cup is the Anthony Cummings-trained Zavite jumping from barrier seven. Top-weight carrying 58.5kg, the seven-year-old gelding is another from boom sire Zabeel and has displayed sensational form of late.

Coming off two wins, one over 2500m at Moonee Valley and the other in the Auckland Cup (3200m), Zavite ran a gallant second to Littorio last start in the Group 1 The BMW (2400m) and will be looking to turn the tables and secure a win on Saturday, giving him a hat-trick of Cup wins following his success in both the Adelaide and Auckland Cups.

Following closely are three horses at $8 odds, veteran eight-year-old No Wine No Song (barrier five), last start The BMW winner Littorio (barrier nine) and the other horse from the stables of the genius mentor Bart Cummings, Moatize (barrier eight).

Even though Moatize is at longer odds than stablemate Precedence, many punters are still picking the Danehill Dancer gelding as the one to break Cumming?s Sydney Cup drought on Saturday.

Cummings, recovering in hospital following a virus, has had a dismal week losing his 2008 Melbourne Cup winner Viewed who tragically had to be put down after twisting their bowel, and a win in the Sydney Cup would be just the ticket.

Trissaro back in 1984 was Cumming?s last Sydney Cup winner and he is hoping either Precedence or Moatize will come through for him and hand the experienced and much-loved trainer his fourth victory in the Randwick feature.

Randwick is packed full of elite racing action on Saturday with other highlight events being the $350,000 Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) headlined by Rangirangdoo, the $300,000 Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) for two-year-olds and the $300,000 Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) featuring the likes of Danleigh, Hot Danish and Demerit.

As well as the four premier Group 1 events two other prestigious Group races are due to light up the track, the $150,000 Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1600m) and the $125,000 Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m).

The 2010 Schweppes Sydney Cup is scheduled to jump at 3:35pm as race six on the day?s bumper eight-event card.

With such a close race on the cards the odds and favourites for Saturday?s Sydney Cup are sure to change. Keep an eye on the latest betting markets and ensure you get the most from your waging dollar by visiting our preferred racing bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au.
