January Cup Betting Tips
The January Cup is one of the ten races scheduled to take place at the Randwick Racecourse on Saturday 7th, January. Chris Waller dominated last year with eight runners in the line-up, with So You Win winning the race with odds of $9. However, the punter’s favourite was James Cummings’ Criaderas, with odds worth $4.80.
This year Chris Waller has five runners in the nominees. However, the betting odds are led by Steely. The runner was fifth in the recently held 1600m Maroubra Handicap held at Randwick Racecourse on New Year’s Eve. His last win was at Kembla Grange in 2021, while recent prominent track records include two second and one third place.
The second runner on the odds table is Berdibek, with odds of $7.00. The John O’Shea trained runner secured third place in the 2000m Summer Cup, held at the Randwick on Boxing Day. Next up, we have Mahagoni trained by David Payne. The runner scored a recent victory in the 1600m Benchmark 88 held at the Randwick Racecourse on Christmas.
