Sydney gelding Red Excitement has been crunched into favouritism for Saturday’s Chester Manifold Stakes.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au opened the Gerald Ryan trained five-year-old at $5.00, but Red Excitement now tops the chart at $4.40. Tried and Tired is firm second pick, at $4.80, for the Listed Flemington sprint.
“Red Excitement scored a great first-up win after almost a year off with injury. Prior to that he won three in a row so it’s not surprising the punters have come for him,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
In a race of many chances another border hopper, Adelaide gelding Boristar ($7.50), is well in commission and Go the Knuckle ($9.50) is also popular.
