Racing Sharks VIP Tips Package:
The first running of the Bendigo Cup was in 1946, with Skyway claiming victory. The race has been run over a variety of different distances over the years, but as of 2011, it has settled on 2400m.
The combination of trainer Charlie Appleby and jockey Kerrin McEvoy has had great success in the Bendigo Cup over recent times, saluting twice in the last four years. The first victory was with Francis Of Assisi and it was followed by a win with gelding Qewy.
Top Of The Range ran 2:27.41 to win the 2019 edition of the Bendigo Cup, and it was the fastest 2400m time the race has seen over the last 20 years. It edged out Qewy’s 2:27.50 (2017) and Puissance De Lune’s 2:27.92 (2012).
