Kingsford-Smith Cup Form Guide & Tips
1. Private Eye ($19) Bet @ Neds
Private Eye hasn’t been at his best this preparation and we’re struggling to include him in selections.
We’d need to have seen more and drawing barrier 16 doesn’t help.
2. Laws of Indicies ($23) Bet @ Neds
A solid fourth last time out but he grinds away and that could be tough to do from barrier 21.
He’s another runner we need to see win before we can part with our money.
3. Ellsberg (Best Roughie – $17) Bet @ Neds
We expect money to come for Ellsberg, who has already seen plenty of sizable bets throughout the week.
He is a talented type that has winning credentials and he’s a two-time winner at the distance, so keep him safe.
4. Eleven Eleven (Best Each Way – $14) Bet @ Neds
Eleven Eleven ran nicely for fourth at Scone last start and a repeat effort should see him right around the mark.
He’s a big race winner with $2.8 million in the bank, so include him at the odds.
5. Apache Chase ($15) Bet @ Neds
He’s a seven-time winner at Eagle Farm and that can’t be overlooked, despite facing some tough opposition.
The Queenslander is a track specialist and we’re not leaving him out of calculations.
6. Wild Planet ($71) Bet @ Neds
Not racing at his best and it’s tough to see his form improving enough to win at this level.
7. Rothfire ($19) Bet @ Neds
Could have been anything before suffering a serious injury. Not the same horse since and we’re unsure if that form will ever return.
8. Olmedo ($41) Bet @ Neds
Better when finishing second at Scone last start but we’re not sure if it’s Kingsford-Smith Cup level.
We’re prepared to leave him out of calculations.
9. Signore Fox ($27) Bet @ Neds
He’s getting better with every run this preparation but this is a sizable step in class and we’re not sure if he’s up to it.
A big betting move on race day would be the best guide but we can’t see it coming.
11. September Run ($17) Bet @ Neds
Dangerous to leave out of calculations because she’s a special mare when she’s on her game.
A good win two back and she wasn’t far away in the Sangster, so we’re not leaving her out of selections at the odds.
12. Entriviere ($4.60) Bet @ Neds
Most of the money has come for the Kiwi mare following a third placing in the Doomben 10,000 behind Mazu.
That should be a good form guide and she has solid second-up form, but Paulele beat her home on that occasion, so she’s our second pick.
13. Paulele (Best Bet – $4.80) Bet @ Neds
Paulele was second in the Doomben 10,000 and that should be the best form guide for this race.
His sectionals were terrific, and although he’s not suited by the weights, he has more upside than most in this field.
14. Isotope ($13) Bet @ Neds
Talented on her day, as she showed when winning fresh up at Gold Coast. The six-time winner can’t be left out of calculations.
15. Away Game ($20) Bet @ Neds
Away Game has forgotten how to win but she continues to produce good efforts against tough company.
She comes off a second placing at Group 1 level and she’s a past winner at Eagle Farm, so keep her safe.
16. Brooklyn Hustle ($13) Bet @ Neds
She owns a good turn-of-foot on her day and drawing barrier five could see her figuring in the finish at generous odds.
After opening at $20, there has been a steady flow of money come for her, so include in first four bets.
17. Scallopini ($34) Bet @ Neds
A three-time winner on the track but he meets a tough field and we can’t find room.
18. Niccanova ($91) Bet @ Neds
Big odds available and rightfully so. Unlikely to figure in the finish.
19. Jamaea ($23) Bet @ Neds
Talented on her day but she hasn’t won in some time and that’s a concern. Could be up against it here.
20. Ranch Hand ($26) Bet @ Neds
Returned to form with a win at Eagle Farm but consistent has always been tough to come by. It gets the inside draw, but there are too many nice types in the mix.
21. Alpine Edge ($51) Bet @ Neds
Unlikely to run and it would need to improve to figure in the finish.
