Grey Lion is yet to make an appearance in Australia, but the classy European import remains a clear $3.60 favourite in 2016 Geelong Cup betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Resuming this year for a classy win in the Prix De Louviers (2500m), Grey Lion failed to fire in his second-up assignment but subsequently ran third in the Group 3 Prix D’Hedouville (2400m) most notably on May 8th.

The Galileo entire will leave from the outside gate in the Geelong Cup and will be partnered by in-form hoop Katelyn Mallyon.

Oceanographer has continued to receive plenty of attention in 2016 Geelong Cup betting markets and has firmed into outright $3.60 second-favouritism, having opened at a quote of $4.20.

A standout for prominent British trainer Charlie Appleby this year, Oceanographer resumed in May for a credible fourth in the British Racing Stakes (2414m) but failed at his second-up task during the Royal Ascot Carnival.

Having since won the Cover Wherever You Work Handicap (2066m) and finished seventh in the Ebor Heritage Handicap (2816m), the Sea The Stars gelding is drawn ideally for a good run in transit from barrier 6, and has been charged with carrying only 54kgs in the Geelong Cup 2016.

Kinema will have his first start for Chris Waller in the Geelong Cup 2016 and is worth consideration for a bet at current $4.60 Geelong Cup odds.

A multiple winner of notable stakes races in the UK through an impressive racing career so far, Kinema returned to competition this year for consecutive wins in the Al Basti Equiworld Stakes (2816m) and Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes (2414m).

Finishing mid-field in the Group 2 Goodwood Cup (3200m) most notably on July 28th, Kinema will leave from the rails draw in the Geelong Cup with Craig Newitt in the saddle.

Qewy ($5.50) and Black Tomahawk ($7) interestingly figure as the only other runners currently available at 2016 Geelong Cup odds of less-than $10.
