Sayed has returned to racing in terrific form this time and is a clear $1.55 odds-on favourite in 2017 Wyong Cup betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Resuming for a smart win in a Newcastle minor over 1850m on April 29th, the Stormy Atlantic gelding ran second in the Servers Australia Handicap (2100m) at Wyong on May 16th before returning to winning form in the Clanbrooke Racing BM78 (2100m) on June 7th.

Second behind Encosta Line in the Grampians Region BM78 (2000m) on June 24th, Sayed posted consecutive and dominant wins in the Pro Rata Membership On Sale BM78 (2400m) and John & Denise Cobcroft BM85 (2400m) before running second behind Auvray in the Randwick Mayor’s Cup (2400m) on August 19th.

Sayed will be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy when he takes his position in the Wyong Cup field and will jump from barrier 7.

Destiny’s Kiss is yet to herald much interest in Wyong Cup betting markets, but remains sole occupant of the second line of betting at a $6 quote.

The nine-year-old has been a strong and consistent performer throughout his entire racing career; posting fifteen wins and as many minors through seventy starts, for more than $1 million in prize money.

The Power Of Destiny gelding steadily built to the task this time and ran on for a smart third in the Listed ATC Winter Cup (2400m) at Rosehill on July 1st with 61kgs in tow.

Having taken plenty of benefit from a freshen-up and fourth in the Listed Premier’s Cup (1900m) last weekend, Destiny’s Kiss will be ridden by leading hoop Hugh Bowman in the Wyong Cup and will jump from the ideal barrier 3.

Interestingly figuring as the only other runner currently available at Wyong Cup odds of less-than $10, Dee I Cee ($7.50) post a long-overdue win in the Premier’s Cup last weekend and arguably represents the best value for money at his current quote.

Third behind Mongolian Khan and Volkstok‘N’Barrell in the 2015 edition of the New Zealand Derby, Dee I Cee has been somewhat plagued by injury through his recent career, but is in the right form to figure amongst this Wyong Cup field.
