2010 Moonee Valley Cup Field

October 21st, 2010

The 2010 Moonee Valley Cup field has been released, with 15 runners and 1 emergency. Known this year as the 2010 Cathay Pacific Airways Cup, the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup is a 2500 metre run for 4 year olds and up run at set weights plus penalties.

Some notable entrants in this field are Precedence, Master O’Reilly, and Jessicabeel. While Precedence is unlikely to be given much consideration with second top weight of 56.5kg and a barrier 10 start, Jessicabeel will look good from barrier 5 and Master O’Reilly may be in with a chance from barrier 1. Be sure to join Luxbet to get the best odds as soon as they come out.

Jessicabeel may actually be a bit of a diamond in the rough if punters ignore her based on performances this season. It’s true that she hasn’t been doing well in recent runs, but Jessicabeel seems to do best at longer distances than she has run in her past three races. The 2500 metre length of the Moonee Valley Cup could change her fortunes and hand her an impressive victory.

Master O’Reilly is another horse that really only performs best at longer distances, and he has the potential to place in this run – or at least to finish in the first four. Depending on Master O’Reilly to win would certainly be a mistake, but don’t ignore him if you are making a box trifecta or box First Four bet.
