Betting On The 2010 Easter Cup

March 31st, 2010

While all eyes may be on the Rosehill Garden’s Racecourse this weekend with the Golden Slipper Day, the Caulfield Racecourse will be holding a more laid back affair as the Easter Cup Day goes ahead featuring some great races.

Headlining the day’s proceedings will be the penultimate race of the day – the Group 3 Easter Cup (2000m) – which will see 11 horses compete for the $125,000.

Going into the 2010 Easter Cup, Kidnapped is topping the early odds, despite drawing a wide barrier, at $4.

Going into the 2010 Easter Cup, Kidnapped is topping the early odds, despite drawing a wide barrier, at $4. Finishing eighth in the Group 1 Royal Randwick Guineas, the Peter Snowden-trained gelding competed against a top-quality field and may prove too classy for Saturday’s line up.

Close behind the three-year-old is the Mick Price-trained Miss Maren at $4.20. Finishing in the top half of the Group 1 Australasian Cup (1200m) at Flemington, the mare is certainly a strong galloper despite the outside start.

Rounding out the odds for the top three is Fanjura at $5.50. The Marju gelding has recently won a 1,700 metre handicap at Caulfield, topping a field of nine – and with the fourth barrier is another starter to watch.

Closing the odds for the 2010 Easter Cup is Rowland at $101 – and with the ninth barrier to his name would payout a lucrative sum if backed.

Also taking place on Saturday as part of the Easter celebrations will be the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m).
