Australian Cup Day Racing Tips - Can Larimer Street win the Sires'?

Super Saturday sees the Group One Australian Cup and Newmarket Handicap take place, two prestigious races on the Australian racing calendar.

The rail moves out to the nine metre mark so watch for horses down the outside part of the track, while we will be racing on rain effected going.

Our best of the day comes in the second race while we are keen on the outsider of the field in the seventh.

Australian Cup Day Favourite

Race 4 No. 1 Spanish Reef 

Third up and ready to launch is how I would describe this mares chances.

Third up she has had six starts for three wins and a second, she has won this race the previous two years and looks set to make it a three-peat.

She has improved at each outing this campaign, last seen finishing third behind Greysful Glamour on a leaders track last start.

Getting to Flemington is a massive tick as is the mile at this venue, having won three times from four starts and a Group One placing.

She will be ridden positively and I expect her to kick and not be caught down the straight.

Australian Cup Day Roughie

Race 7 No. 15 Selica

This filly had one very big spruik on her last prep where OTI owner Terry Henderson was at Moe racecourse to watch her debut, thinking that she would be heading down a Thousand Guineas path.

That debut was a victory before pulling up with a heart abnormality at her second start in town.

She went out for a break, coming back for a powerful victory over 1400m first up Sandown, defeating subsequent city winner and place getter Paradee and Diasonic.

Sticking to the 1400m second up may prove a great move with the mile a likely plan later in the prep.

Any sting out of the ground will benefit her as she is a swimmer and at $61, that is a ridiculous price for proven form lines.

Australian Cup Day Best Bet

Race 2 No. 1 Larimer Street

Having had two starts for two placing, and not much luck at either outing, we are expecting things to turn around for the son of Brazen Beau.

Last seen finishing third in the Inglis Millennium at Warwick Farm, he handled a heavy 10 super that day and probably would have won had he had more luck.

He comes from the right stable, the Blue Diamond winning stable in fact, the Busuttin and Young combination, where Trent was heard on the radio during the week pumping up this boy's chances.

This looks a much weaker race on paper and I am expecting him to be winning with even luck, and is therefore the best bet of Australian Cup day.

Australian Cup Day Next Best Bet

Race 5 No. 10 Wild Planet

A Group One WFA fourth behind Streets Of Avalon, Super Seth and Melody Belle reads well for this race.

His first up run in the Rubiton Stakes was worth a blackbook mention before simply being outclassed last start but still running very well.

He drops from 59kg down to the minimum of 54kg here which looks to suit a lot better and staying the seven furlongs looks a good move.

He handles the wet ground, so any extra rain or rain that does not come will not effect him.

His third-up form is excellent so we need to be sticking with him in the big drop down in class.
