Punters are keeping their powder dry when it comes to the feature race at the Gold Coast this Saturday, the Hollindale Stakes (1800m), with punters waiting to see what happens with scratchings.
Plein Ciel is one of the key chances for the race but is third emergency. He was best backed in early betting, into $5 from $5.50 but has gotten out to $6 now and isn’t assured a start at this stage. Favourite for the race is the big time performer Shillelagh, who is a $4.60 chance and has been relatively solid.
Youngstar is the Doomben Cup horse for Chris Waller and has been backed to win this weekend, firming half a point from $6.50. There’s also been a sprinkling of money for My Nordic Hero ($41-$35) despite coming back in trip.
