As the Hawkesbury Gold Cup is held outside of Sydney during the week of the South Australian Derby, this is a race for the locals. It draws a field of local favourites or those that want to make the trip from Sydney for a little bit of competition. For this reason, it does not draw a lot of attention from punters. They are all busy focusing on the bigger races held at the Gold Coast and at Morphettville. Nevertheless, if you are new to the world of horse betting, this is an excellent opportunity to start out.

If you would like to put down a wager on this race, you are going to have to do a little research. Look into the form guide and choose a horse that performs well at the distance and on similar tracks. Are there any repeat contenders that have a good chance of placing? When all else fails, find out who the local favourite is. As this is a smaller race that attracts local handy types, it does not have any influence on other bigger races.

If you find yourself wanting to take a stab at the Hawkesbury Gold Cup, then get to a good online sportsbook such as Ladbrokes.com.au. Sites such as this will often feature the best available odds on smaller races such as this one. They will also offer punters access to plenty of betting tools that will help deciding on where to put your money.
