Race 6 – Schweppes Sydney Cup – This main event will see over $30,000 in prize money paid out. Tiger Tara is the form trotter here having won all of her last 4 starts. She’s the short priced favourite here and looks to be near unstoppable in this despite starting with the widest barrier draw. Spare Me Days has been consistently finishing among the features and poses the biggest threat to the favourite here. Yayas Hot Spot is a very classy ride and is the only trotter on the second row. She is an experienced and successful ride and poses a very big threat to the front runners in betting. Controversial has been in good form of late, picking up a solid last start win on the back of a third place in her run prior. She isn’t expected to challenge for the win here but is capable of threatening for a place. Quick Turn is also an outside place chance after a good effort to finish third in his last run.
Betting: Tiger Tara $1.10; Spare Me Days $6.50; Yayas Hot Spot $12.00; Controversial $31.00; Quick Turn $41.00; Dynamite Denn Nee $101.00; Chantrey $126.00.
