He’s a legit story due to his pedigree alone, but even that was super ceded last night when this 3YO was sensationally backed with the corporates.
BUCHAREST (Deep Impact-Miss Finland) opened yesterday afternoon at $3 for his assignment today at Newcastle in race 4.
This morning he was $1.80 at Sportsbet with huge money coming from across the land by those ‘who know’.
This, despite the fact he races an unbeaten filly with a sizeable boom named LAND AHOY (Dundeel-Aiden Sea) who won on debut by a huge maiden.
She too has been very well tried firming from $4.50 into $3.80 adding further merit and interest to the push for Bucharest.
But Bucharest, a big colt, and son of former multiple Gr 1 champion Miss Finland, must have improved since winning on debut when he finished too hard for the smart ZARZOU (Zoustar-Arinosa) at Newcastle over 1500m.
Incidentally, if you want a bank to back Bucharest with, Zarzou runs in race 4 today. He should win and you can multi him up with Bucharest.
The slight concern for Bucharest is the fact he’s up in grade but down in distance and he took the whole of the Newcastle straight to land the prize on debut.
But the avalanche of money for him today suggests those things aren’t concerns.
Fascinating day coming up.
