Eleven runners have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s 2016 Parramatta Cup (1900m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Allergic has stamped himself as a potential staying star for Godolphin and currently figures as outright $2.60 favourite in 2016 Parramatta Cup betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Posting five wins and as many minors through only seventeen career starts so far, Allergic secured a number of commendable results through the 2015 Autumn Carnival; returning to the paddock after running third in the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m).
Requiring a couple of runs to find form this time, the Street Cry gelding ran second to Second Bullet in the Byron Moore Handicap (2000m) at Flemington on New Year’s Day and has won each of the Ascend Sales Trophies BM85 (2000m) and Frank Wilding Bday BM93 (2000m) most recently.
Kiwi raider Hasselhoof has been set for the Sydney Cup this time and currently rests on the second line of 2016 Parramatta Cup betting at a quote of $3.40 for success.
More than announcing himself to the New Zealand racing community through his debut campaign, Hasselhoof comfortably won each of his first four competitive starts and returned to the paddock after beating a number of handy runners to the line in the Thomson Wilson BM85 (2100m) at Ruakaka on September 12th.
Resuming this time for success in the Dunstan Feeds BM85 (1400m), the Tavistock gelding made a successful transition to black type company when taking out the Group 2 Rich Hill Mile (1600m) on January 1st.
Having made a credible debut in Australia for fourth in the Gardenia Handicap (1600m) at Randwick a fortnight ago, Hasselhoof will leave from barrier 7 in the Parramatta Cup with regular hoop Matt Cameron in the saddle.
Interestingly figure as the only other runner currently available at 2016 Parramatta Cup odds of less-than $10, Libran will carry a very-manageable $5.50 and represents terrific value for money at a quote of $5.50 for success.
A standout in Europe prior to his purchase and transfer to the care of Chris Waller, Libran debuted in Australia for sixth in the Swisse Wellness BM90 (1800m) in November before immediately returning to the paddock.
Having resumed for third in the Gardenia Handicap a fortnight ago, the Lawman gelding has reportedly taken plenty of benefit from the run and will be hard to beat in the 2016 Parramatta Cup.
Alpha Beat has so-far received the greatest market share of attention in 2016 Parramatta Cup betting markets; cutting in from opening odds of $11 to current register as outright fourth-favourite and clear market mover.
