European invader Benbatl has firmed from $10 into $8.50 with Sportsbet ahead of his clash with Winx in Saturday’s Cox Plate.
The online bookmaker was claimed for a $45,000 wager on Benbatl at $10 and money continues to come for the Godolphin star. Winx, who will jump from barrier six in the eight-horse field, remains $1.25 favourite and is by far the best backed.
Next in the market is another Godolphin runner, Avilius ($16) ahead of last year’s runner-up Humidor ($17).
“Benbatl is no doubt a star in his own right and there is plenty of punters that think he will give Winx a run for her money. We say bring it on and go Winxy, make history with your 29th win in a row,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
