Who our tipsters like at today’s Rocky Cup meeting

HORSE RACING: Sunshine Coast-based Spectroscope is the topweight in today’s feature race, the $85,000 Rockhampton Cup at Callaghan Park.

The Cup was first raced in 1918, and today’s event shapes as a wide-open affair.

Rockhampton-based trainers provide seven of the 16 starters, with Jared Wehlow’s Balboa Rocks firming as the best local hope.

There are also strong local chances in the co-feature, the $65,000 Rocky Newmarket (1200m).

There are nine races on today’s bumper program, with the first jumping at 12.07pm.

Our resident tipsters Tony McMahon, Russell Leonard and Vince Aspinall have provided their top four fancies in each race.

Happy punting - and remember to gamble responsibly.
