Sportsbet.com.au punters have shied away from the favourite in the Victoria Derby (2500m) and they have instead launched into a Godolphin runner at odds.
Shards, who is on the seven day back up from the Vase (2040m) last Saturday, has clearly been the best backed runner to take out the event, opening $19 and getting down to as low as $11, but has eased a touch and is now sitting at $13.
Favourite for the race is Tarzino, and he has been easy, out to $2.50 from his opening price of $2.30. The other key runner is the unbeaten WA galloper Kia Ora Koutou, and he has had his admirers ($8-$8.50-$8).
Lizard Island, who comes through the Caulfield Classic (2000m), has also been well backed, into $9 from $13.
