Sydney Racing Tips The Championships Final Day

The Group 1 $2 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes over 2400m is the biggest Group 1 race of the final day of The Championships at Randwick racecourse. It will be the key focus of our Expert Sydney Racing Tips with Blaazing Ben Perkins aka Mr Longshot. However there are a number of other key Group 1 races to focus on for our Saturday Sydney Racing Tips as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Sydney Racing Tips – Sydney Cup

The Sydney Cup is held over 3200m and is clearly the premier staying event of the Sydney Racing Tips Autumn Carnival. But in truth it is a race that lacks class despite the $1 million (was $2 million before prize money cut) on offer.

Sydney Cup – a one paced grinding affair

There is no doubt that the Melbourne Cup is the 3200m race that captures the imagination of the nation. In real terms there is a massive drop in class to the other 3200m races like the Sydney Cup. It is a race that is generally won by the “true” stayer a grinding one paced sort of horse. The Melbourne Cup however, these days is a sit sprint affair for the horse with a turn of foot.

Sydney Cup – past winners

The great Makybe Diva (2004) and the mighty Kingston Town are two who are reserved for the echelon of horse that qualify as champions to have won this race. The 2019 winner was Shraaoh and 2018 Who Shot the Barman, both Chris Waller trained. The average odds of the last 5 winners has been 18-1 so it is a race where value can be found. The Offer was the last favourite to win in 2014 at $3.30.

The key lead up race and form guide to the Sydney Cup is run the week before the Cup and it’s the Group 2 race over 2600m called The Chairmans Handicap. It gives a very good guide to the chances in the Sydney Cup. Raheen Cup was the winner of the Chairmans last week and is on the third line of betting at $8.50 behind $2.40 fav Young Rascal.

Sydney Racing Tips – Australian Oaks

The Australian Oaks is a $1 million Group 1 race for 3 year old fillies over the 2400m at Randwick racecourse and it is a key race of our Saturday Sydney Racing Tips with Blaazing Ben Perkins. It is the number 1 staying race for 3 year old fillies during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.|

There are two key lead up races to the Oaks and they are the Vinery Stud Stakes run 2 weeks before at Rosehill and the Adrian Knox over 2000m run the week before the Oaks on Doncaster Day. In the last 30 years there have only been 4 horses to win the Oaks who didn’t race in Sydney the start before the Oaks. Shout the Bar (Vinery winner 2020) and Collette (Adrian Knox winner 2020) are both well in the market in 2020 along with Probabeel and Nudge.

Last years winner was Verry Elleegant in a brilliant performance and she runs in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes in 2020. She was even money in winning last years Oaks and the last 4 winners have been at an average price of $3.80.

Sydney Racing Coolmore Legacy Stakes

This race formerly known as The Queen Of The Turf Stakes was run at Rosehill over 1500m until 2014 when it was moved to build The Championships Autumn Racing Carnival. The Group 1 $1 milljon Coolmore Legacy Stakes is now run over 1600m at Randwick. Recent history shows mixed results for favourites More Joyous won it twice at $1.50 and $1.25 and Typhoon Tracy at $1.40 betweeen 2011-13. Of the last 10 races we have had 4 winners at double digit odds including 2019 winner Kenedna at $26. So we have a mixed bag here in terms of favs and value odds winners.

The two key lead in races for the mares are The Emancipation (1500m) and also The Coolmore Classic (1500m), won by Positive Peace and Con Te Partiro respectively. Funstar is a raging $2.80 fav here with last weeks Doncaster winner Nettoyer (a big Blaazing Ben $41 winner) is on the second line of betting at $2.50.
