Sportsbet.com.au punters have the Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) this afternoon at Sha Tin as a race in two between a new local and a proven local.
The favourite is Everest winner Classique Legend, who is now based at Hong Kong after formerly being in Sydney under Les Bridge. He heads the market at $2.05, out from even money, but is still the most popular.
The one backed to beat him is the big gun of the locals, Hot King Prawn. He opened $4.00, got to $4.20, but is now into $3.90. You then have to jump to $11 to find the next best, which is the Japanese sprinter Danon Smash, who has firmed from $13.
