2021 Geelong Cup Tips


Geelong Cup 2021 Best Bet – Tralee Rose

This mare looks primed and the clear horse to beat in this event after three really encouraging runs this prep, including last start where she hit the line well to finish second behind Melbourne Cup fancy Grand Promenade.

Although this does not gain her a start in the Melbourne Cup, Tralee rose can still cop a weight penalty which will assure her a start in the field which is all the camp are after.

This is not exactly a strong edition of the event, so the race looks to be well and truly within her grasp.

Geelong Cup 2021 Next Best Bet – Le Don De Vie

He comes back down from the Metrop where he had nothing in his favour, wide for the entire trip, but now draws well here in a much weaker race at Geelong.

Le Don De Vie is a Warrnambool Cup winner at his best so there is enough class there to prove compatitive, especially with Damien Oliver now in the saddle.

If Tralee Rose comes out of the event, this is the one I want to be with, a galloper that will be able to find the front and show a big kick into the straight.

Geelong Cup 2021 Value Bet – Amade

A galloper that can improve third-up is this Phillip Stokes-trained-gelding, who I am doubting enjoyed a fast run race when second-up in the Bart Cummings.

This is unlikely to be run anywhere near as quick, which could result in him finding a forward position and being allowed to build into his race as he did in April where he was an impressive winner at Flemington.

Amade was touted as a big Melbourne Cup chance last prep, so if he can find those heights again he can definitely take out this running of the Geelong Cup.
