Master Of Arts carries winning form into the staying classic and is subsequently the $4.80 favourite in 2017 Adelaide Cup betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Posting seven wins and a further five minors through twenty career starts, Master Of Arts returned to racing this time for four-consecutive fourth place finishes, including a strong performance in the Listed Lord Stakes (1700m) on Box Day.

While failing to fire when eighth in the Listed Torney Night Cup (2500m) on February 17th, the Mastercraftsman gelding stormed home to win the Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) in South Australia last weekend.

Master Of Arts is drawn to receive a good run in transit from barrier 6 and will be partnered by Damian Lane.

Annus Mirabilis has posted a number of smart results this time in and is the sole occupant of the second line of 2017 Adelaide Cup betting at $6 odds.

A former Macedon Lodge runner, Annus Mirabilis required a couple of runs to find form upon resuming this time, but responded with a strong win in the OTI Racing BM78 (2400m) at Sandown on Christmas Eve.

Breaking through for his first black type win in the Listed Bagot Handicap (2800m) on New Year’s Day, the Montjeu gelding placed third in the talent-rich Ascot Racecourse Trophy (2000m) on February 18th before placing fifth in the Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m) at Flemington over the weekend.

Annus Mirabilis is another horse who has drawn ideally into the Adelaide Cup field in barrier 7 and will be partnered by in-form hoop Regan Bayliss.

Chance To Dance has so far received the greatest share of attention from punters in 2017 Adelaide Cup betting markets and has firmed onto the third line at a current $6.50 quote.

Charged with overcoming a topweight of 58kgs in the Adelaide Cup, Chance To Dance has found excellent form leading into the major staying race; winning the Mal Seccull Handicap (2400m) before placing second in the Torney Night Cup last time out.

Arguably the class horse in the Adelaide Cup field, Chance To Dance will jump from barrier 3 with Ben Melham in the saddle.
