Having returned to racing in slick form this time in, Brambles has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in David Jones Cup betting markets and is currently available at odds of $3.50 for success at leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Securing six wins and as many minor places from his 17 competitive starts to date, the lightly-raced six-year-old has steadily built to the task over seven starts this time in; overcoming a forgettable run for eighth in the Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) on August 16th when finishing a close second in the Listed Thoroughbred Bloodstock Stakes (1700m), winning the Spring Is The Season Handicap (1700m) and running an impressive third in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) last time out.

Allocated the ideal barrier 5 and confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Luke Nolen, Brambles is a special to take out the 2014 David Jones Cup should he miss selection in the featured Caulfield Cup (2400m) on Saturday.

Maintaining status on the second line of David Jones Cup betting at a quote of $4.40, Signoff is an excellent chance of success this weekend having been charged with carrying just 54.5kgs.

Contesting an impressive record of six wins and two minor places from 11 competitive starts to date, Signoff has found slick form over four spring starts this time.

Beating just two runners home in the Wedrive Plate (1400m) first-up on August 30th, the Authorized gelding ran third behind Brambles in the Spring Is The Season Handicap and while unlucky to be blocked for a run in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) on September 26th, returned to impressive form when finishing a close second in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) last weekend.

Allocated barrier 8, punters may find value in adding Signoff as a selection in a David Jones Cup trifecta or quinella bet.

Confirmed for his maiden appearance in Australia in the David Jones Cup, Noble Protector is given some chance of immediate success in betting markets and is currently available on the third line of betting at $7.50 odds.

Winning the Listed Newsells Park Stud Stakes (2414m) first-up on July 19th, the Haafhd mare finished an impressive third amongst classy company in the Listed Henry Cecil Galtres Stakes (2414m) last time out, has been allocated the ideal barrier 3 and will carry just 54kgs in the 2014 David Jones Cup and therefore is more than worth consideration for a bet this weekend.
