Zipping Early Favourite in 2011 Australian Cup Odds

Defending champion Zipping is the clear favourite to win the 2011 Australian Cup, the nine-year-old warhorse sitting at the top of the futures betting markets for the Group 1 feature set to run at Flemington’s Super Saturday of Racing on March 12.

Defying his age and the odds, the Lloyd Williams-owned Zipping proved to be in career best form during the spring winning the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m), finishing a gallant second to So You Think in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), fourth in the Melbourne Cup and then took out the Sandown Classic for a record fourth year in a row.

Last year in a thrilling finish Zipping won the Darley Australian Cup by the narrowest of margins, and the punters are getting right behind the Danehill gelding to take out the $1 million showdown again this year with Ladbrokes.com.au paying $6 on Zipping in their early Australian Cup odds.

Close second favourite is previous Melbourne Cup winner Shocking paying $6.50 along with stable mate Whobegotyou, a proven weight-for-age performer who most recently ran third in the Cox Plate.

Other runners sitting at the top-end of the Australian Cup futures markets at Ladbrokes.com.au include Ciaron Maher’s consistent Warrnambool galloper Moudre ($9), Bart Cummings’ Moonee Valley Cup winning Zabeel gelding Precedence ($11), the Gai Waterhouse-trained Theseo ($11), Caulfield-based five-year-old Heart Of Dreams ($13) and Zipping’s promising four-year-old stable mate Linton ($13).

Generous early odds are available on all the other Australian Cup nominees with talent including Cummings’ classy mare Faint Perfume ($31), the John Thompson-trained Trusting ($41) and C’est La Guerre ($51) paying very well.

The 2011 Australian Cup final field will be released on March 9 and published here at Races.com.au.
