Sydney Cup Form Guide & Tips

1. The Chosen One (Best Roughie – $16) Bet @ Sportsbet

The Kiwi didn’t have any luck last time out and he could turn that form around. He was much better when running second fresh up.

Something close to that run should see him winning, so the $16 is an excellent value price for punters.

2. Southern France ($7) Bet @ Sportsbet

Yet to show his best form since arriving in Australia but bookmakers are respecting him in the betting markets.

$7 is too short in our opinion but it could pay to keep an eye on betting moves.

3. Sound ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet

Ran second in the Auckland Cup across the Tasman but showed little last time out. He would need to find a few lengths to be competitive in this company.

5. Chapada ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

We gave it a chance last start but he didn’t impress. The tempo of the race didn’t help, but it wasn’t an ideal hit-out before the Sydney Cup.

$26 is an accurate price from bookmakers.

6. Shraaoh ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Talented at best but it hasn’t shown much form since winning the 2019 Sydney Cup. It has experience winning the race, but it’s coming off a last-place finish at Rosehill.

7. Miami Bound ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet

Carrying 51.5kg helps but she is a touch short in the betting. Her best form comes on rain-affected tracks and her last 200m was good last time out.

We expect slightly higher odds on race day but with Craig Williams riding, she shouldn’t be overlooked for multiples.

8. Spirit Ridge ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet

Good enough to score back-to-back wins earlier this preparation and he owns five wins from 15 stats overall.

Two of those wins have come at Randwick but none of them have come against Sydney Cup-quality fields.

9. Hush Writer ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet

Tends to make its own luck but he hasn’t been able to show much in four runs this preparation.

We can’t him in selections and it would be a big upset if he wins.

10. Favorite Moon (Best Bet – $5.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

A quality type that showed his ability last start at Rosehill. It was his first start in Australia and he held off Realm of Flowers close to the line.

We like that form and getting in with only 51kg is a steal. The Manion Cup winner has been rock-steady in betting and punters get value odds at $5.50.

11. Rondinella ($14) Bet @ Sportsbet

Flashed home to finish second behind Quick Thinker last week. There isn’t much wrong with that form, but she has yet to win from eight starts at Randwick.

That is the big worry, but it was an encouraging effort last Saturday and carrying 50kg brings her into contention.

12. She’s Ideel ($7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

It hasn’t been a winning season for She’s Ideel, but she hasn’t had much luck in running either.

She owns four consecutive placings and although yet to be tested at this level, she should get every chance in the run.

50kg helps and we wouldn’t leave her out.

13. Realm of Flowers (Best Each Way – $6) Bet @ Sportsbet

A well-regarded type that that closed off stylishly behind Favorite Moon last time out. That form bodes well and she could be the progressive type in the field.

The daughter of So You Think is a four-time winner from 15 starts and rising to this distance shouldn’t pose a problem.

$6 is well worth taking.

14. Sacramento ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet

Looked good earlier on this season but after rising in grade, he hasn’t been able to replicate that form.

Another light weight chance but he shouldn’t be in the mix.

15. Good Idea ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet

An upset winner two back and he wasn’t all that far behind when sixth at Caulfield.

Unsure if his form is good enough, but in two starts over 3200m, he owns a win and a placing, so keep him safe.

16. Selino ($16) Bet @ Sportsbet

Getting warm and there is some market confidence. A past winner over this distance and it could enter first-four calculations.
