2010 Schweppes Sydney Cup Draws Tight Starting Line Up

April 22nd, 2010

This Saturday the highly anticipated Sydney Cup Day will go ahead at the Royal Randwick Racecourse, and sees eight fantastic races form the proceedings headlined by the thrilling $400,000 Group 1 Schweppes Sydney Cup (3200m).

Due to jump at 3.35pm as the sixth race, the 2010 Sydney Cup has drawn 12 top quality stayers for the event with little between eight of the starting line up.

Sitting slightly ahead in the odds at the moment is the Randwick-based Precedence at $6.

With Luke Nolan aboard, the four-year-old gelding recently finished fifth in the Chairman’s Handicap (2600m), but despite this disappointing finish is still ahead in the odds of the eventual winner of the race – Jesscicabeel at $6.50.

Starting from barrier 11, Jessicabeel is equal in the odds with the Group 1 The BMW runner up Zavite, with the gelding having won the Auckland Cup over the 3,200 metre distance in March.

No Wine No Song and Moatize are two other contenders to keep an eye on for the 2010 Sydney Cup at equal odds of $7.50.

Winner of the BMW was Littorio, and with the ninth barrier comes into the race with relatively long odds of $8.

As the culminating day of racing at the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the racing card is one to impress with three other Group 1 races on offer to spectators –the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m), the Champagne Stakes (1600m) and the All Aged Stakes (1400m), along with the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1600m).
