He might be on the path towards the Adelaide Cup (3200m), but that hasn’t stopped Sportsbet.com.au punters from launching into Averau in the Doriemus Handicap (2000m) at Flemington on Saturday.
The last start Bagot Handicap (2800m) winner is better suited over further than the distance he is set to run over this weekend, but he has been clearly the best backed runner in the event, firming to $4.80 from $6.50, which has pushed favourite Akzar out to his original quote of $2.80 after firming ten cents prior.
The other noted firmer is Index Linked, who has firmed from $14 to $9. Extra Zero had been supported from $6.50 to $5.50, but with the support for Averau, he has eased out to $6.
Punters have had enough of Fulgur, and he is friendless, out to $13 from $8.50.
