The 2011 Adelaide Cup has attracted a full capacity field with 20 runners to fight out the Group 2 over 3200m at Morphettville on Monday March 14.
As always with such a large field in a Group rated race it’s tough for punters but the rewards on offer are second to none.
We’ve scoured the form and analysed recent runs to pick our top contenders for the 2011 Adelaide Cup to help you win some cash.
Our tip to win the event is the in form Guyno.
Currently at a very attractive $7.50 fixed price with Luxbet, Guyno is unbeaten this preparation with a first up win paying $16 in the Mornington Cup followed by a win in the Lord Reims by the narrowest of margins.
He’s one from one at this track and unlike most he has experience over 3200m.
Guyno now exclusively runs events over 2000m so there’s no doubt he’s a genuine stayer.
Our second place pick in the 2011 Adelaide Cup is the current market favourite King Diamond at $4.20.
Mark Kavanagh is looking for his first win in his home event but we think he’s going to fall agonisingly short.
His worst result from seven races this preparation was a fourth, with four wins recorded in his last five.
The only question we have on the horse is the distance, having never attempted a race this long.
He also has run in various events this prep under 2000m, however we do note his last start win at Flemington was over 2600m.
The final place pick in this year’s Adelaide Cup is Maunatrice at $8.50.
The mare had won four in a row going into the last start Lord Reims with Guyno only halting her run by the narrowest of margins.
She’ll be amongst it again in the Adelaide Cup but is also questioned over the distance having never attempted it.
Her longest range win came over 2500m but her excellent form should carry her through to a place.
They represent very good value tips whether it’s each way or in a trifecta so be sure to throw something on the 2011 Adelaide Cup with Luxbet.
For a limited time they’ll even match your initial deposit dollar for dollar to give you twice as much interest in horse racing during the Morphettville Adelaide Cup Carnival.
