The Kingsford Smith Cup is the second leg of the Winter Sprint Triple Crown and is run over 1300m as part of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. The race will be run on Saturday 27th May at Eagle Farm racecourse with total prize money of $1,000,000.
The race has been a tough one for punters in recent years with only two favourites winning since the race was upgraded to Group 1 status in 2006. The race provides some great value betting opportunities due to its open nature with value to be had by astute bettors.
Below are the most popular bet types for the race.
This is the simplest and oldest form of horse race form betting. You do the form, pick out a Kingsford Smith runner and place a winning bet on them and if they win, so do you! It’s that simple. The 2022 Kingsford Smith Cup was won by APACHE CHASE at odds of $12. Meaning that a winning bet of $1 returned $12.
Similar to a winning bet but with more options to win. In races of 8 starters, place bets are paid out on the top 3 placings while fields of 7 or less pay out on the first 2 past the post. The payouts aren’t as large as winning bets, but the frequency of payouts is greater. APACHE CHASE paid $3.90 a place last year. A $1 bet would have returned $3.90.
This is a bet placed on who will finish in the top 2 of a particular race, in any order. Payout figures are larger than that of a winning bet as it is more difficult to find the top 2 finishes in a race. The 2022 Kingsford Smith Quinella (APACHE CHASE and PAULELE) paid $47. A $1 bet would have returned $47.
First Four Bet
A First 4 consists of selecting four runners to place first, second, third and then fourth in the correct order in the Kingsford Smith. While it is hard to pick the first 4 in the race, the rewards are big. The 2022 Kingsford Smith Cup First 4 paid well over $10,000. A first four bet provides the opportunity to get a large payout from a small outlay and is well worth considering in the competitive Group 1 races.
A Multi bet combines a series of single bets into one wager. “Multis” as they are commonly referred to have operated under a number of different titles in the past such as “accumulator” “all up” or “parlay”. Put simply it is combining a number of bets into asingle bet with odds multiplied for each selection.
Same Race Multis (SRM) is fast becoming a popular way to bet on horse racing. An SRM on the Kingsford Smith Cup is sure to return big odds with bets on horses to “finish in top 3” into another horse “to win” into another to “finish in top 4” a possible combination.
Multis are an excellent way to boost your payouts for a small outlay and are a good-value betting strategy.
