Garner is looking to press claims for a Goodwood berth via a win in the Euclase Stakes (1200m) this Saturday at Morphettville and he’s the Sportsbet.com.au favourite to do so.
The Gordon Richards trained three year old is yet to prove himself at 1200m but gave them a spanking two weeks ago in the Redelva over 1100m, suggesting an extra 100m will be fine. He heads the market at $2.80 over the horse he beat in the Redelva, Roccabascerana, who is a $4.40, out from $4.20.
The one that has been well tried is Xilong, who wasn’t given much hope last time out in the Redelva. Punters think she can bounce back because she opened $5 and has tightened into $4.60.
