Black Caviar will grace Brisbane for the first time tomorrow May 14, 2011, as she attempts to claim her 13th straight unbeaten victory in the $400,000 BTC Cup.
Seven quality horses will line up against her as she tries to achieve this incredible feat and here you will find our latest tips for the race.
Quite obviously it is impossible to go past the mighty Black Caviar to win the Group 1 BTC Cup.
With a perfect record and an optimum barrier draw (4), you would have to assume she is an unbeatable as ever in the BTC Cup.
Luxbet’s Paul Vincent is just a confident that Black Caviar cannot be beaten.
“The Black Caviar show rolls into Doomben where Queenslanders get to see this champion mare,” Mr Vincent said.
“She will win easily just has she has her previous 12 starts and again super sprinter in his own right, Hay List will have to be content with the minor prize.”
Sportingbet’s CEO Michael Sullivan has decided to take Black Caviar on at odds of $1.20, after she shortened into odds of $1.16.
“We have seen bets of $150,000 and $50,000 already but the total hold is well down on what we have seen on her starts in Sydney and Melbourne,” Sullivan said.
“Punters have been reluctant to take the $1.16 about her today so we are going $1.20 to make sure we get our fill out of her.
“As a bookie, it is our job to take these champions on and any punter who wants to back her can lock in $1.20 at Sportingbet now which is clearly the best price in the country.”
Mr Sullivan believes that many punters will continue to support Black caviar after she has been so good to them in the past.
“So many of our punters have had a huge run backing her during her unbeaten streak and are well in front of us so I can’t see them dropping off in this race,” he said.
“Punters have more confidence in her than any other horse in recent times which is understandable given her run of wins and I think the $1.20 will attract them.”
For second place in the 2011 BTC Cup, you can’t go past Black Caviar’s arch nemesis, Hay List.
Hay List would be an absolute super star if there was no Black Caviar on the scene and he will surely run second again here.
The five-year-old ran a perfect race to win the Group 1 All Aged Stakes last start and his trainer seems to think he has improved even more since then.
Although it is hard to believe he could ever be capable of beating Black Caviar, especially over her pet distance of 1,200 metres.
We are tipping Robert Heathcote’s Buffering to finish third in the 2011 BTC Cup.
Buffering won the Group 2 Victory Stakes last start, proving to the world that he deserves to mix with some of the best horse racing talent we have to offer.
The three-year-old gelding was unlucky to draw the second widest barrier of the race, but should still have the talent and ability to place against this tough 2011 BTC Cup field.
