2010 Queensland Cup Preview – Lang & Tinseltown Dominating Betting

This weekend one of the highlight events on the Australian racing calendar is the $150,000 Listed Queensland Cup (3200m) at Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse, attracting many of the nation’s in-form stayers.

As one of the only races still contested over the ‘true’ 3200m Cup distance, the Queensland Cup provides an excellent lead-up race for horses heading towards spring carnival riches including the coveted $6 million Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday of November.

A top-quality field of gallopers will take to the track in the 2010 Queensland Cup including Tinseltown, Court Ruler, Sand Hawk and Lang.

Michael Moroney’s six-year-old Kiwi gelding Tinseltown is coming off an eye catching second to Ironstein in last week’s Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) and will be one of the sure-fire favourites in the betting markets, especially favourable if the track is slow.

The other horse sure to attract plenty of bets is seven-year-old Lang, whose performance in the Queensland Cup will determine whether connections will press on for a run in the 150th Melbourne Cup.

Lang placed fourth in the Caloundra Cup, the veteran galloper having made an impressive racing comeback after suffering a bowed tendon running in the 2009 Sydney Cup. Lang is another runner that loves a wet track, so if the rainy weather continues in Queensland he becomes a real danger.

The other feature race at the Eagle Farm meeting on Saturday is the $75,000 Listed Ascot Handicap (1300m).

More great racing action this Saturday can be found at Victoria’s famous Flemington racecourse with the $200,000 Listed VRC Winter Championship (1600m) final headlining the meeting.

The prestigious ‘mile’ race is sure to attract a quality field of contenders following the heats, with many of the country’s leading trainers nominating their gallopers for the 2010 Winter Championship in the hopes of securing more black type success.

After 47 horses qualified for the winter feature, nearly half dropped out after nominations closed at the start of the week with 24 horses left fighting for a spot in the 16 horse final field.

Leading the order of entry are talented runners including six-year-old grey Jungle Ruler, the Peter Moody-trained consistent three-year-old Doubtful Jack and Mark Kavanagh’s four-year-old Redoute’s Choice horse Dr Doute’s.
