Punters expect Team Williams to win the Sydney Cup (3200m) this Saturday and are backing both of their runners with confidence to win the feature.
Melbourne Cup winner and last start Tancred victor Almandin holds the call at $4.20 after opening $3.80. There is a rumour going around he might be scratched, but at this stage, he’s a definite starter.
The stablemate Aloft has a great record at 2400m+ and is best backed to beat the fav. He is at $8.50, in from $9.00, with the stable putting Kerrin McEvoy on despite the jock winning on Almandin in the Tancred.
Chairmans winner Sir Charles Road has been supported also, into $6.50 from $7.50.
The x factor is the Japanese stayer Pre Swtick, who is at $11 and pretty solid after opening $10.
