David Jones Cup

The David Jones Cup 2016 is a Group 3 race run over 2000 metres, held under open handicap conditions. It is held on Caulfield Cup Day in October each year at Caulfield Racecourse with prize money of $150,000.

The 2016 David Jones Cup will be run on Saturday October 15.
The David Jones Cup is a popular target for middle distance gallopers and stayers. The 2000m distance is an ideal lead up race to the 2040m Cox Plate held a week later. The David Jones Cup also has potential to be employed as a lead up race to the Melbourne Cup.

Officially registered as the Coongy Handicap, the David Jones Cup is often contested by horses who go on to race in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup on Cox Plate Day or the Group 2 Lexus Stakes on Victoria Derby Day. However, it’s not particularly accurate as a good to any individual race, mainly due to the extraordinary diversity of campaign plans and races on offer at this time of year.

David Jones Cup Betting

Betting on the David Jones Cup is quite popular, as the race is held on the same day as the Caulfield Cup. Punters at online betting sites like Ladbrokes.com.au will put most of their money on the Caulfield Cup, but a decent chunk still goes on the smaller events like the David Jones Cup.

Why should you spread your money and not just put it all on the outcome of the big race? Variance. If you bet it all and win the Caulfield Cup, it’s true that you’ll win big. On the other hand, a loss will wipe out your bankroll, so it’s better to spread your bets over a few opportunities. Your potential for epically massive wins reduces, but so does your potential for a huge loss, while your chances of coming out with any kind of profit go up.

For the best David Jones Cup betting, consider joining online betting sites like Ladbrokes.com.au or bookmaker.com.au. These sites are entirely trustworthy, and they frequently offer the best odds available. It is also much more convenient to use an online betting agency as you don’t have to leave the comfort of your desk.
