The in-form Robert Smerdon yard is poised to claim another major win with More Than Sacred in tomorrow’s Geelong Cup.
More Than Sacred, Sertorious and Zanbagh share top billing at $5.50 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Shoreham ($8.00) and Caravan Rolls On ($6.50) also have admirers.
“More Than Sacred holds more than twice the money compared to other runner, but it does look an open affair. Punters will be having a close look at the race as the Geelong Cup has supplied two of the last four Melbourne Cup winners,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
Dunaden (2011) and Americain (2010) completed the Geelong-Melbourne Cup double.
