2011 Doomben Cup Early Betting Update

May 17th, 2011

With the Group 1 Doomben Cup set to run this Saturday May 21, 2011 at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane, early betting markets have now been released.

The current favourite to win the $500,000 Doomben Cup is Chris Waller’s My Kingdom Of Fife, who is paying odds of $4.20 to win the race at Luxbet.

My Kingdom Of Fife has won all three of his races on Australian soil since been imported from England earlier in the year.

With three Group titles, including the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes, already under his belt, My Kingdom Of Fife will be looking to make it four in a row in the 2011 Doomben Cup.

Close behind My Kingdom Of Fife in the 2011 Doomben Cup betting markets is other English import Glass Harmonium.

Glass Harmonium is currently paying odds of $4.40 to win the 2011 Doomben Cup at Luxbet after finishing second to My Kingdom Of Fife in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes last start.

The five-year-old entire has won three of his 13 race starts and will be having only his second ever start on Australian soil in the 2011 Doomben Cup.

Queensland local Shoot Out is third in the line of 2011 Doomben Cup betting.

Paying odds of $6 to win the 2011 Doomben Cup at Luxbet, Shoot Out will be looking to improve on his last two fifth place finishes this preparation.

The four-year-old gelding, who won the last year’s AJC Australian Derby and Randwick Guineas will be hoping to regather his three-year-old form that saw him win a number of Group races.

Shoot Out has won seven of his 22 race starts and has accumulated more than $1.8 million in prize money.

The least favoured horse in the 2011 Doomben Cup betting markets is currently Saint Encosta, who is paying odds of $126 to win the race.

While Saint Encosta won the Group 3 Randwick City Stakes in March this year, he has been unable to finish better than eighth in his four races since.

Most recently, Saint Encosta finished last in a 15 horse field in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap at Doomben Racecourse on May 14, 2011.
