Punters only want to solidly back one runner in the Australian Cup (2000m) this Saturday at Flemington with nearly all other horses in the market on the drift.
The money has come for Avilius who ran an eye catcher last Saturday in the Chipping Norton behind Te Akau Shark. Punters think he will be suited up to 2000m and will love a the cut out of the track. Punters have marked him as the horse to beat in the race and they have heavily backed him across all online bookmakers with the star Godolphin galloper in from $4.50 to his current quote of $3.60.
WA raider Regal Power opened second favourite at $5 but as it stands has no friends, out to $6.50. Kings Will Dream is another punters don’t want to touch. He opened at $6.00 but is now out to $7.50.
Outside of Avilius punters have solidly backed Fifty Stars who is $8.00 into $6.50 and have specked last years Caulfield Cup favourite Constantinople at each way odds which has seen him shorten from $35 into $21.
