A talented field of 13 stayers have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2200m) at Doomben Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting perspective and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Let’s Make Adeal ($3.90) has been backed into clear favouritism in 2015 Brisbane Cup betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au after opening at a quote of $7; currently perched ahead of Index Lined ($5), Moriarty and Sense Of Occasion who share the third line at a quote of $5.50 each.
Will Let’s Make Adeal justify her resounding favouritism and win the 2015 Brisbane Cup or will one of her talented rivals find the line in the clear?
A proven performer over track and distance, Epingle is weighted well, has been confirmed to be partnered by Hugh Bowman and offers punters incredible value for money at current $9.50 odds. posting six wins and a further 14 minors through her 35 career starts so far, Epingle failed to make anything of an impact when beating only one runner home in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) first-up in March but responded in the best way possible when taking out the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2200m) on April 25th. Running third in the Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup (2200m) last weekend, Epingle will leave from the rails draw in the Brisbane Cup.
Index Linked ($5)
Index Linked was a late scratching from the Eagle Farm Cup last weekend and remains primed for a competitive run on Saturday. Placing a credible fifth in the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) at Randwick on April 18th, the Dansili gelding ran a close second to Epingle in the Chairman’s Handicap on the Gold Coast before returning to the winner’s circle in the Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) on May 16th. Sure to receive a good run from barrier 2, Index Linked undoubtedly has the class to post a second-consecutive win on Saturday.
Vilanova has been unable to secure much of a consistent run of form over the last 12 months, but is capable of big things on his day, is also a proven performer over course and distance and offers great value at current odds if he can get it together in the 2015 Brisbane Cup. Taking out the Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) and running third in the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) most notably over the 2014 Brisbane Carnival, Vilanova has steadily built to the task over three starts this time and is probably offered his best chance of success so far in the Brisbane Cup.
