Astoria has been the best backed on the entire Flemington program with Sportsbet when it comes to the VRC St Leger (2800m) on Wednesday, with the three year old backed with confidence.
The colt was a had luck tale in the Australian Derby when getting flattened where he looked as if he was running into the race as a threat. That form is good enough for punters to back him, backing him into $2.05 after opening $2.25 and could start in the red if the trend continues.
High Energy, trained by Darren Weir, is the only other runner at single figures, sitting at $7.50, in from $8. If you are looking for value, there has been some specking for Fantastic Rock ($34-$31).
