Despite drawing wide, Russian Camelot has been the noted firmer with Sportsbet.com.au for the Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
The four year old has drawn the widest gate, and normally that means the price of a horse would drift out, and $5 was the opening price after the barrier draw, but punters have said that’s overs, now at $4.60.
He has taken over as favourite over the horse that beat him two weeks ago in the Caulfield Stakes, Arcadia Queen. She opened $4.50 and got right out to $6 before settling at $5.50.
Epsom winner Probabeel has been met with good interest at odds, now into $8.50 from $10.
