Rising staying star Big Duke dominates betting for tomorrow’s Sydney Cup.

The Launceston Cup winner has firmed from $2.80 into $2.50 with online bookmaker sportsbet.

Big Duke holds six-times more money than second favourite Assign ($7.00) and could give Darren Weir his first Sydney Group 1 winner.

Champion mare Winx ($1.10) holds around 40-times more money than second favourite Hartnell ($11) in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

The closest betting battle is between Bonneval ($3.60 favourite) and Nurse Kitchen ($5.50) in Oaks betting.

“Everything points to Big Duke being very hard to beat in the Cup. He gets in with a light weight and has had a faultless preparation and Weir deserves to finally break through for a Sydney major,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
