Educated by Dan Clarken & Oopy MacGillivray, the in-form mare boasts a profitable mixture – a beneficial draw (gate 3), jockey Jamie Kah recent off a Group 1 double in Melbourne, and a runner-up end within the lead-up Lord Reims Stakes.

The Map is aiming to change into the primary mare to win the Adelaide Cup since Fanatic in 2018, and with a weight drop to 53kg, she seems well-positioned for the problem.

At present priced at $2.80 and firming via Ladbrokes, she is the clear favorite.

Nonetheless, there are challengers lurking.

Veteran Amade ($6.50) can’t be ignored regardless of his age.

The ten-year-old gelding completed third in final 12 months’s Adelaide Cup and comes into the race with a win within the Group 3 Geelong Cup from the spring.

Whereas carrying high weight (58kg) from an outdoor barrier (15), his expertise and up to date type make him a contender.

One other horse to observe is Yellowbrick Street ($7.50), winner of the Lord Reims Stakes.

Educated by Patrick Kearney, this Victorian raider is chasing a hat-trick of victories and a historic Lord Reims – Adelaide Cup double (final achieved by Apache King in 2001).

Yellowbrick Street’s spectacular win suggests it has the stamina for the two-mile Cup distance with a drop in weight aiding his probabilities.

Rounding out the highest contenders within the markets are Excelleration ($8) and Alhambra Lad ($9.50).

Excelleration comes off back-to-back wins, whereas Alhambra Lad completed second within the Launceston Cup behind Excelleration in Tasmania final begin.

The Adelaide Cup is ready to be run as Race 7 at 4:15 pm native time at Morphettville on Monday.
