The early support has come for Eckstein with Sportsbet.com.au when it comes to the feature race at Rosehill this Saturday, the Winter Challenge (1500m).
Eckstein was having her second start for Chris Waller in the Winter Stakes two weeks ago and produced a brilliant finale from the back to win. Up to 1500m and fitter, she’s likeable and that’s why she’s been supported, holding her line at around the $4.60-$4.80 mark.
The early firmer, and somewhat of a surprising firmer, is Take It Intern at $6, in from $7.50, after bottoming out at $4.60 and was favourite at one stage. Next best is the in form Gaulois, who is a $7 chance.
