The in-form Darren Weir has become the pin-up trainer for punters and he is set to play a hand in Saturday’s Doomben 10,000.
Weir’s four-year-old, Stratum Star ($17) is the second most popular runner with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Azkadellia heads betting at $3.00 and remains the best supported runner.
Weir could have two other runners, Rageese ($10) and Scarlet Billows ($21), but punters only have eyes for Stratum Star.
The Chris Waller trained Delectation ($5.50) and Bjorn Baker’s Music Magnate ($6.50) also have admirers.
“On face value Stratum Star was disappointing last start, but it hasn’t stopped the money coming for the stallion. Weir has been having a stunning season and as far as punters are concerned form means nothing, if it is trained by D.K. Weir they want to get on,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
