Kingsford-Smith Cup Form Guide & Tips
1. Trekking ($8) Bet @ Sportsbet
Trekking is a quality sprinter at his best but we haven’t seen his best for some time. This is a race where he could recapture his form, so include in first-four bets.
2. Gytrash (Best Each Way – $4.80) Bet @ Sportsbet
Gytrash needed the run last time out and it was still a solid effort for third. He goes well with a run under his belt and despite drawing barrier 15, he should be respected.
The 10-time winner is rarely out of the money and punters get each-way odds worth taking.
3. Savatoxl (Best Roughie – $13) Bet @ Sportsbet
He comes off an all-the-way win in The Goodwood and that form bodes well for the Kingsford-Smith Cup.
The five-year-old makes his own luck in front and he has had experience at Eagle Farm, so that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Punters get value odds.
4. Imaging ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet
Always a danger to win but consistency and recent form is a big issue. He’s not running well enough and we’re prepared to leave him off our ticket.
5. Kementari ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
Needed two runs back from a spell and although yet to fire in two starts at Eagle Farm, he could spring an upset result.
It would be in Kementari’s nature to do so and he could add value to multiples.
6. Victorem ($18) Bet @ Sportsbet
Speedy on his day and he comes off an easy trial win. However, he has been found out at this level recently and we would need to see improvement.
Drawing barrier two is ideal, but punters should look for a significant betting push.
7. So Si Bon ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
Two wins from his last three starts and the enigmatic type is in career-best form. Different race here, but he can never be ruled out completely.
8. Niccanova ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
Got back to winning form with a victory on this track last start. He loves the track with 11 starts for three wins and six placings, so don’t discount.
Barrier 11 shouldn’t be a worry and he could settle back and finish strongly.
9. Vega One ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
Struggling to find his best form and this isn’t an easy race to win. We’re prepared to leave him off our ticket.
10. Jonker ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet
Returned to form this preparation which is good to see. Never too far away from the prize and returning to Queensland holds no fears.
Is he a Group 1 sprinter? We’re not sure, but watch late betting moves.
11. Signore Fox ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner fresh up but has been kept in check in two subsequent runs. Odds suggest he won’t be figuring in the finish.
12. Blazejowski ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters have a tough time catching when this runner will win. Comes off a solid third placing fresh but we’re not keen at this level.
13. Savatiano (Best Bet – $4) Bet @ Sportsbet
A quality six-year-old mare that was unlucky last time out when beaten by Kolding in a driving finish.
She won a Group 1 prior and her recent trial win at Randwick has topped her off nicely for this race.
$4 is a great price and she demands attention.
14. Outback Barbie ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
Took an age to win her fifth race but she got it done at Doomben. Much harder here and she will likely struggle.
15. Pennino ($81) Bet @ Sportsbet
Would need a lot of luck to finish in the first half of the field.
16. Dame Giselle ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Dangerous at her best and the 55kg helps. However, she would need to improve on recent form.
