2014 Adelaide Cup Betting Update

March 7th, 2014

Having amassed six wins from 17 race starts to date, classy four-year-old Cooldini has registered as undoubted market mover and favourite for Monday’s Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) at Morphettville Racecourse.

Confirmed to line-up alongside 15 competitors for the major Group 2 race, leading jockey Glen Boss will take the ride on the exciting gelding, and will leave from the slightly wide barrier 11.

Punters have reacted to a resounding win in last weekend’s Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m) ahead of clear favourite Prince Of Penzance and Outback Joe, and wagered a large number of bets on the classy son of Bernardini; seeing his price cut dramatically from opening odds of $3.60 to currently sit outright favourite at $3.

In-form gelding Big Memory was arguable the biggest winner in the 2014 Adelaide Cup barrier draw, having been allocated gate six for Monday’s feature race.

The classy son of Duke Of Marmalade has returned to the track in scintillating form in his current preparation, scoring two wins and three seconds in only five races including the Listed Torney Night Cup (2500m) most recently.

In-form jockey Craig Williams has been confirmed to retain the ride on Big Memory in the 2014 Adelaide Cup; who currently offers punters good value at a quote of $3.20.

Currently featuring as the only other 2014 Adelaide Cup acceptor to appear at odds of less-than $10, Outback Joe has produced a mixed bag of results since returning to racing in the Great Strides Handicap (1400m) on November 10th, however has seemingly hit consistent form in recent events; winning the Bagot Handicap (2800m) by nearly three lengths before finishing third behind Cooldini in the Roy Higgins in March 1st.

Trainer Nigel Blackiston has outlined the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) as the major target for the Elvstroem gelding this preparation, but if confident his leading stayer can lay a serious claim on the Adelaide Cup on Monday from barrier 9.

Morphettville-local Distillation arguably offers the best value to punters for 2014 Adelaide Cup success at a particularly generous quote of $26 ($6.30 for a place).

Having finished no worse than third in his last five starts, the Half Hennessey gelding produce an incredible turn of foot to claim the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) on March 1st ahead of several fellow-Adelaide Cup acceptors.

Confirmed to leave from the ideal barrier 5 on Monday, Distillation is undoubtedly a serious contender for 2014 Adelaide Cup Glory.
