Bookies are keen to take on Avilius when it comes to The Bart Cummings (2500m), with the odds on favourite on the drift.
He is 3/3 since coming from overseas, his latest win seeing him score a dominant triumph in the Kingston Town Stakes (2000m). He needs to win this to qualify for the 2018 Melbourne Cup and is at $2.10 to win, with most expecting him to start odds on.
The horse that is rock solid in betting is Yogi, who is at $7.50 despite a seemingly below par effort last time in the Tokyo City Cup but getting out to 2500m will really help his cause.
Midterm ($14-$12), backing up from the Metropolitan, has had specking.
