Sandown Cup Final Tips, Preview, Odds and Field - Can anything touch the favourite?

  • He is one of four runners for Robert Britton

Tornado Tears will start a red-hot favourite to win Thursday night's Group 1 Sandown Cup Final, but will he justify the short odds in the world's richest staying race?

Robert Britton's Tornado Tears was breathtaking in the heats when romping clear to score Rippin' Sam, and deserves to jump as favourite for the $250,000 final with Ladbrokes making him $1.70. 

Litter mate Rippin' Sam came from a mile back to finish second behind Tornado Tears in last week's heat, but he was still a distance adrift of the impressive winner who clocked 41.297 seconds, the fourth fastest time ever run over the 715 metre trip.

Rippin' Sam is the second favourite in the Ladbrokes market for the final at odds of $3.30 but it would take some turnaround to reverse form with Tornado Tears with both having drawn wide.



Dyna Chancer and Benali, who have been drawn in box five and one respectively, are the other runners at single figures odds for the final with both posted at $6.50 chances. 

Benali gives Britton three of the top four in the betting after winning his heat and the trainer also has another heat winner Quick Jagger as a roughie at $26.

Dyna Chancer was the other heat winner on Saturday night and Correy Grenfell's challenger will look to upset the Britton cavalry charge.

Tips


On the evidence of the heats, nothing is going to beat Tornado Tears. The wide draw gives hope to those gaining more favourable boxes and that might give us a roughie to play as a place hope. Back the favourite to win and take the $4.60 for Quick Jagger to make the most of box 3 and place.
