2018 Ladbrokes Mornington Cup Field & Odds: Kings Will Dream Favourite

Darren Weir’s flying and well-weighted four-year-old Kings Will Dream is dominant favourite for Saturday’s Ladbrokes Mornington Cup 2018 field and betting odds in Victoria.

Held as part of incredible weekend of racing that includes Golden Slipper Day in Sydney, this year’s Listed $300,000 Ladbrokes Mornington Cup (2400m) originally drew a 14 horse field.

The line-up is down to 13 after the early scratching of the Lloyd Williams-raced Foundry (7).

Firming favourite in the latest Mornington Cup odds at race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au is the in-form Kings Will Dream who has been backed in from $3 to $2.70 to extend his winning streak to six on the trot.

Lightweight Group 1 winning hoop Dean Yendall comes aboard the son of Casamento who gets into the Mornington Cup field on the 54kg minimum.

Drawn a treat in barrier four, the gelding was last seen saluting over 1800m at Flemington carrying 55.5kg to victory and Saturday will be his first test over the mile and a half.

He was up on the pace throughout for his latest victory suggesting he can stay the distance and could take some beating from the gate with the weight.

There are three other single-figure hopes in Ladbrokes Mornington Cup betting this autumn with the $6 second elect being top weight Lord Fandango (60kg).

Archie Alexander’s Lord Of England entire gives the weight away to his rivals, but drops notably in grade.

He was last seen finishing a midfield seventh only two and a quarter-lengths beaten by Harlem in Flemington’s Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) as a $41 roughie.

The European import will relish the rise in distance on Saturday boasting three wins and a second from seven previous 2400m runs.

Lord Fandango, winner of the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) last October, also caught the eye in the spring when under two lengths back fourth in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

The other dangers are considered to be the other two Weir-trained runners in the race with Bondeiger ($7) in gate five looking for his fourth straight win and Gallic Chieftain ($8.50) out wider in barrier 12 but with plenty of time to overcome the alley.

Apprentice Ethan Brown rides War Pass six-year-old Bondeiger who was last seen taking out the Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) over the distance in Tasmania back in late February.

The ride on Tamayuz entire Gallic Chieftain belongs to Brad Rawiller, the Sandown Cup third placegetter over the two miles in the spring coming off a lead-up win in the Stony Creek Cup (2100m).

Gallic Chieftain has plenty of 2400m form (3:1-1-1) and the Sandown Cup form from last November has recently been franked with the winner Fanatic saluting in the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m).

Of the double-figure hopefuls those with genuine claims include the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Lexus Stakes winner from the spring Cismontane ($11), Launceston Cup runner-up Fastnet Dragon ($12) over from the Apple Isle and Lindsay Park’s seven-year-old Golden Mane ($13) coming off a trio of third place finishes.
