2017 Sydney Cup: Tips and Race Preview
Tips and Race Preview for the second attempt at the 2017 Sydney Cup (Group 1) at Randwick on Saturday.
Interesting that there is support so far for runners that didn’t compete first time around such as Boom Time who is specked at $21 into $19 at Sportsbet in the 2017 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick on Saturday.
2017 SYDNEY CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS
Lasqueti Spirit only knows one way to race so will keep pushing for the lead but with Penglai Pavilion, Polarisation and Boom Time all prominent the tempo looks genuine.
BIG DUKE is in stellar form winning his last three and is shooting to complete the autumn staying treble after landing the Chairman's Handicap and Manion Cup. He is well weighted, gives the impression he will run out a strong two miles and is drawn to get the perfect run in transit.
PENGLAI PAVILION had a strong hit out in the abandoned version of this race so that may have aided his fitness as he hasn't raced officially since last October. He has a touch of class and has the early pace to overcome the wide gate.
WHO SHOT THEBARMAN is an evergreen stayer who shows up in this type of race year after year while POLARISATION was another to perform well in the no race last time.
