The in form Riding The Wave heads the market with Sportsbet.com.au for the feature at Flemington this afternoon, the Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m).
The Lindsey Smith trained gelding was a dominant winner down the straight last Friday and the rise to 1400m should be fine. Opened $3.60 and has firmed, now into $2.15, mind you a portion of that is via deductions.
He holds the call over Vassilator, who sits at $5.50 alongside Blazejowski, who has firmed and should appreciate being fitter and stepping up to a more ideal trip.
Never Again, a strong last start winner, is $9.50 in from $14.
