It seems punters are willing to forgive Fiorente, with the stallion continuing to firm for The BMW at Rosehill.
Despite finishing a disappointing seventh in the Ranvet last start, Fiorente has been heavily backed with online bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au. The Gai Waterhouse trained stallion is firm $2.80 favourite over It’s A Dundeel, who has eased from $3.80 to $4.40.
“With more money coming for Fiorente than any other horse, it seems punters are happy to forget his last run and go on his previous Australian Cup win,’’ Sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson said.
Ranvet winner Silent Achiever ($4.20) has also been well supported and Sertorius ($11) is the second best backed runner.
