Gypsy Diamond returned to the winner’s circle with an impressive performance over the distance a fortnight ago and as a result, has opened as and maintained clear favouritism in 2015 Wagga Cup betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au at a quote of $3.20.

Posting four wins and a further six minors through her 24 career starts so far, Gypsy Diamond returned this time for third place finishes in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) and Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m); placing fourth in the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) in between.

Unable to match the late pace when ninth in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on April 11th, the Not A Single Doubt mare displayed a keen turn of foot late to take out the Group 3 Japan Racing Association Plate (2000m) comfortably last time out and will be tough to beat in the Wagga Cup as a result.

Kourkam is yet to finish outside the first three over three starts this time in and has maintained position on the second line of Wagga Cup betting at generous $5 odds as a result.

One of several leading chances for trainer Tony McEvoy at black type level this weekend, Kourkam took out a minor over a mile first-up on February 28th; progressing to a commendable second in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) a fortnight later before returning to the winner’s circle in the Listed Albury Gold Cup (2000m) most recently on March 27th.

Needing some luck in running from the wide and somewhat awkward barrier 15, Kourkam is sure to be boosted by the addition of leading jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the 2015 Wagga Wagga Gold Cup.

Our Voodoo Prince and Trade Commissioner have both posted competitive form this time in and share the third line of 2015 Wagga Cup betting at generous $6.50 odds as a result.

Beginning his career under the guidance of Ed Dunlop before transferring to the care of Chris Waller at the conclusion of his 2013 campaign, Our Voodoo Prince was unable to match the late pace in the JRA Plate last time out but did finish a close second in the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m) in his prior start.

Trade Commissioner only managed seventh in the Listed Anniversary Vase (1400m) last time out on April 18th but will relish a step-up to 2000m, and will be partnered by in-form hoop Blake Shinn.
