Cessnock Cup Betting tips

The Cessnock Cup is a mainstay of NSW country racing and one of the state’s favourite feature events.

Owned by the Newcastle Jockey Club, Cessnock is a venue that doesn’t draw a lot of attention from the city trainers which means you have to trust the local form.

On the odd occasion that a city-based trainer does visit however, you have to respect the power of the stable.
