She’s testing the patience of punters, but those at Sportsbet will be asked to take a relatively short price about Champagne Cuddles when she lines up in the Breeders Classic (1200m) at Warwick Farm this Saturday.
The Bjorn Baker trained mare had a gut like mine first up down the Flemington straight in the Kensington and ran accordingly late behind surprise winner BelwazI. You look at that form and think no, but she did carry condition and is on trial for the Newmarket. She’s $2.60 to win this Saturday but I suspect she’ll be taken on and get to $3+.
The best backed, and clearly, has been the stablemate Egyptian Symbol, who opened at $6.50 and has firmed into $5 despite a tricky gate. Cool Passion is first up and has firmed half a point from $6.50.
