2014 Wyong Gold Cup Betting – Destiny’s Kiss v Queenstown

Two classy stayers are currently sharing top spot in Wyong Gold Cup 2014 betting for this afternoon with the bookies and punters having a hard time separating the Joe Pride-trained Destiny’s Kiss and Gai Waterhouse’s exciting mare Queenstown.

The duo are two of the remaining 12 hopes for the $150,000 Listed Carlton Mid Wyong Gold Cup (2100m) following the early scratching of #8 Iggi Pop and #13 Evangelist from the handicap clash.

Drawn in barrier seven, now into five, with Jason Collett to ride is the first punters’ pick Destiny’s Kiss.

The Power Of Destiny gelding is a dour stayer with winning form right up to the two miles having won the Stayers Cup (3200m) at Randwick in the mud back in June.

Fifth in his past two starts the six-year-old was most recently beaten only 1.1 lengths by Mr Chard in the Listed Rowley Mile (1600m) at Hawkesbury on August 21 and is set to appreciate the step up in distance today.

Wyong Racecourse is currently rated a Slow (7) and Destiny’s Kiss is also a known mudlark with awesome form especially on Heavy going (9-5-0-0) so looks a top chance in the wet.

His main rival and current co-favourite through Ladbrokes.com.au is then the widely-drawn Stratum mare Queenstown jumping from barrier eight with Tim Clark booked for the ride.

One of four in the Wyong Gold Cup field for Gai Waterhouse, Queenstown gets in on 56kg, three kilos less than the top weight Destiny’s Kiss (59kg).

She also comes off a last start fifth having carried 57kg to be beaten 3.4 lengths by He’s Your Man in the Listed Winter Challenge (1500m) at Rosehill a month ago.

Before that in July the now five-year-old beat a good field in the Listed Grafton Cup (2350m) and she will be improving on her resuming run getting up in distance here with a good second-up record (4-0-2-1) as well.

There are then just two other single figure fancies in Wyong Gold Cup betting with early market mover Travolta ($8 into $7) and Multilateral sharing the second line of betting.

Another Waterhouse-trained runner and equal 59kg top weight, Handsome Ransom gelding Travolta will be ridden by Tommy Berry on Saturday in his second-up run this prep.

The six-year-old ran fourth to his stablemate in the Grafton Cup two back and was also fourth in March’s Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m) over at Ellerslie in New Zealand.

If you can’t choose between Waterhouse’s Wyong Gold Cup chances back the quartet at $3.50 through Ladbrokes and if any of them win you will collect up to $50!

He, like Destiny’s Kiss, comes via the Rolwey Mile when 1.2 lengths off the winner in sixth and will also be improving.

Mizzen Mast gelding Multilateral meanwhile is prepared by ace Sydney trainer Chris Waller and, as seems to be the trend in this year’s Wyong Cup field, ran fifth in his lead-up run.

That was behind the fellow Waller-trained Hoylonny over 1800m at Rosehill on August 16 with the grey after his first win since a 1900m victory at Rosehill on July 19.

Also in the mix in a wide open Wyong Gold Cup market are then four chances at $11 with Waller’s Winter Cup winner and Grafton Cup runner-up Secessio, Group 2 runner-up Tremec, the Joe Pride-trained Canny Ballad and Waterhouse’s recent Rosehill winner over 2000m Laidback Larry with the rails draw.

Waterhouse’s fourth hope in the race meanwhile is European import Michelangelo ($31) who ran dead last in his Australian debut back in August last year on the back of a third to Encke in the Group 1 St Leger at Doncaster in September of 2012.
