Betting odds have been released for the 2012 BTC Cup which is due to run at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday May 12, 2012.
Buffering is currently the $2.60 favourite at bookmaker.com.au for the 2012 BTC Cup, despite his wide barrier of 14 in the race.
The four-year-old gelding has won nine of his 24 race starts and has earned more than $1.3 million in prize money.
Trainer Robert Heathcote is concerned that Adebisi could ruin Buffering’s chances in the 2012 BTC Cup.
“I still fear Adebisi. He probably can’t beat Buffering, but he can get him beaten,” Heathcote said.
“Having Nash Rawiller on certainly gives me that little bit more comfort because there’s no better judge of tempo than him.
“He’s the best front-running jockey in this country.”
Heathcote will also line up Woorim in the 2012 BTC Cup, who is paying odds of $15 at bookmaker.com.au.
The trainer was impressed with Woorim’s recent trackwork performance.
“He needed to work to the line on the bit with the intent to hit the line,” he said.
“Melissa (Leitch) rode him and knows him better than anybody and the work gave me an affirmation that the horse is back and the desire is high to want to compete.
“In saying that, we still have to be a little bit reserved because it’s only when they are under extreme pressure that these things rear their ugly head.
“I really need to see him savage the line on Saturday to press on to the Doomben 10,000 and Stradbroke.”
Neeson and Sea Siren are equal second favourites for the 2012 BTC Cup and are each paying odds of $7.50 at bookmaker.com.au.
