Kirramosa was unable to match the late pace in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) last time, but will relish a step-up to 2400m on Wednesday and rates as outright $4 favourite in 2015 Bendigo Cup betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

A Group 1 winner having taking out the 2013 edition of the Crown Oaks, Kirramosa returned this time for fifth in a talent-rich Rosehill Gardens minor over 1200m; progressing to fifth in each of the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m).

Unlucky to be hampered in the run last start, trainer John Sargent is pleased with the condition of the Alamosa mare and is confident she is ready to run a big race in the 2015 Bendigo Cup.

Leebaz is yet to herald much interest in betting markets for the Group 3 feature race but remains outright second favourite for success at 2015 Bendigo Cup odds of $4.80.

Returning this year for sixth in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m), Leebaz continued to impress when third in the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m), and while unable to find late and eleventh in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m), responded well in running second in the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) and winning the Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes (1800m).

Clearly needing the run when twelfth in the Listed The Sofitel (1400m) first-up this time, the Zabeel gelding ran ninth in each of the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) before running on for third in the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) most recently.

Undoubtedly requiring some luck in running from the outside barrier, Leebaz has been confirmed to be partnered by leading hoop Dwayne Dunn and is sure to lay a great account for himself on Wednesday.

Maygrove charged home for an impressive fourth in the Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) last weekend and arguably offers punters the best value for money at 2015 Bendigo Cup odds of $6 for success.

Running eleventh in the Listed Heatherlie Stakes (1700m) first-up this time, Maygrove appears to be peaking in form at the right time for success in the Bendigo Cup after running seventh in the Listed Harry White Classic (2400m) and fourth in the Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m) leading into the Geelong Cup.

Kiwi hoop Matthew Cameron returns to the saddle of the five-year-old, who will likely receive the run of the race on Wednesday from the ideal barrier 4.
