THE CUP – RED CADEAUX – RACE 7 No. 4 [Melbourne]
The two-time runner-up beat Admire Rakti in the Tenno Sho last year and finished alongside him this year.
Meets him a kilo better here and seems to find another gear in Australia.
BEST – LAW – RACE 5 No. 1 [Melbourne]
Was blocked for a run until the final 100 metres last time and still managed a close second.
Looks well placed in this company and is unbeaten in two starts at the trip.
VALUE – NOT LISTENIN’TOME – RACE 9 No. 2 [Melbourne]
Is running out of chances but this is significantly easier than his previous spring outings.
The trainer has said all along he’ll peak third-up and at $11 he is an attractive proposition.
LAY – MIHALIC – RACE 4 No. 1 [Melbourne]
Was impressive on debut but the current quote is poison in a race like this.
Takes on 15 other raw two-year-olds including plenty we know nothing about.
BACKED – ADMIRE RAKTI – RACE 7 No. 1 [Melbourne]
No surprise to see punters getting behind the favourite after his impressive Caulfield Cup triumph.
Will only be better over further and he’s the clear horse to beat.

THE CUP – FAWKNER – RACE 7 No. 3 [Melbourne]
A faultless preparation, similar to last year’s winner Fiorente.
If he runs the trip out you’d think he’d be in the finish and based on last year’s effort in the race there’s some confidence going into this.
BEST – WINE TALES – RACE 6 No. 2 [Melbourne]
Excellent first-up and beat home Careless then was strong to the line winning her next run.
Sea Spray looks the main danger but from a good draw she’ll position well and sprint too quickly for the opposition.
VALUE – ICONIC – RACE 9 No. 4 [Melbourne]
Finished ninth in the Manikato but close up and was one of many that had no luck.
Run prior was good behind Rubick, if he can finally run a strong 1200 metres then the $9 looks great value.
LAY – AMANPOUR – RACE 10 No. 9 [Melbourne]
Recent form has been sound, however a rise in distance will prove problematic for the mare who has had difficulties in the past.
Hot race, chances elsewhere.
BACKED – SIGNOFF – RACE 7 No. 24 [Melbourne]
Was well supported for the Cup prior to Saturday ($51-$17) was then backed to win the
Lexus so naturally the money has continued for him since, to the point where he’s vying for favouritism with Admire Rakti.

Daniel Bevan from Betfair







THE CUP – ADMIRE RAKTI – RACE 7 No. 1 [Melbourne]
His best form is at these genuine staying trips and he demonstrated, easily, the dominance of Japanese stayers in the Caulfield Cup.
The penalty won’t be anywhere near enough to stop him here.
BEST – THE QUARTERBACK – RACE 4 No. 2 [Melbourne]
He’s still on the improve and notched up a good win last start, demonstrating he’s recaptured (at least) his solid 3YO form.
In what is a pretty modest race, he’s got a class edge on them here.
VALUE – SEA SPRAY – RACE 6 No. 4 [Melbourne]
A good winner at Caulfield last start and is one of the most honest fillies going around with two wins and two places from her five starts.
They put up $10 on the exchange and I’m more than happy to play.
LAY – SIGNOFF – RACE 7 No. 24 [Melbourne]
Talk about overreaction. He beat up on a bunch of walkers in the Lexus, most of whom would be cricket-score odds in the Cup, and punters are happy to take $8 on the exchange? Madness. Lay all day.
BACKED – ORDER OF THE SUN – RACE 3 No. 3 [Melbourne]
Punters have been forgiving of his breakneck pace in the Bendigo Cup that saw him cruelled and that of Massiyn in the race.
Hasn’t traded longer than $4 for anything and is the best-backed runner in the race.


So, what are you waiting for? Just go ahead and put your bet on your horse! Best of luck to you!
