After a strong piece of work at Moonee Valley on Tuesday morning alongside Cox Plate (2040m) contender and stablemate Sweynesse, Gouldian has been well supported to claim the final lead up for the Victoria Derby (2500m), the Dilmah Exceptional Teas Vase (2040m).
The son of Street Cry, whose lone win came last time out in a Warwick Farm maiden over 1600m, has been the subject of a good push at Sportsbet.com.au, firming to $5 from $8. That has seen the two early favourites, Chivalry ($4.60-$5.50) and Atmosphere ($4.80-$5) drift in the market.
The money doesn’t just start and end with Gouldian. Other notable firmers have been Moonovermanhattan ($9-$8), San Padre ($16-$11) and Go Indy Go ($6.50-$6).
Horses that aren’t wanted in betting and have eased are Bondeiger ($8-$13), Duccio ($7.50-$9), Royal Standing ($34-$67), Coram ($51-$101) and It’s Thyme ($51-$101).
