Zarastro, scratched from a midweek maiden at Warwick Farm, heads the market with Sportsbet.com.au for the Phelan Ready (1000m) this Saturday at Eagle Farm.
The Chris Waller trained colt was a sharp trial winner a couple of weeks back at Randwick and was a short priced favourite for Wednesday, but was scratched in preference for this. Opened $4.80 and is into $4.60.
He holds the call over a couple of runners at $5.50. Baby Wong has the hard race fitness/experience under the belt while Alpine Edge is on debut for Team Edmonds.
At odds, there has been support for I’ve Been There, into $12 from $15.
