Albury Cup 2017: Weir runner headlines the Field

Filled in: Racing punters are keeping their powder dry when it comes to the Albury Cup (2000m) at Albury this Friday with a lot of unknowns still to be decided.

The key one is clearly Goldstream, trained by Darren Weir and to be ridden by Ben Allen. The Italian Derby winner is also accepted for the Mornington Cup, with a guaranteed Caulfield Cup start for the winner of that race. He is the $5 equal favourite. Alongside him is Cool Chap, who is in really good form without winning.

Green Sweet, who did a very good job at his Australian debut behind Hogmanay, is at $6.50, while the Hayes/Dabernig pair of Extra Zero and Bold Sniper represent value at $11 and $15 respectively, especially the latter off an eye catching first up run in the Wangaratta Cup.
