After two luckless runs from his last two outings, Sportsbet.com.au punters were stunned when Ghost Protocol opened $34 to take out Saturday’s Australia Day Cup (2400m) at Randwick.
The Paul Perry trained former European should have won the Tatt’s Cup here two back when second to Multilateral, then went to the Gosford Cup and had no luck in the straight behind Midsummer Sun. The punters haven’t ignored those efforts, and he has been crunched into $9, clearly being the biggest pre post plunge for the weekend.
Oriental Lady opened at $4.60, got out to $4.80 and now is $4.40. The Gai Waterhouse trained Danas Best is friendless. He is $3 out to $3.80. Off The Rails opened at $10, got to as low as $8 but is now back at his opening quote.
