He’s had a busy prep but Handsome Thief is the popular elect to take out the Moreton Cup (1200m) this Saturday at the Sunny Coast.
The Darren Weir trained five year old comes through the Goodwood at Morphettville where I thought he did a pretty good job in defeat behind Santa Ana Lane. This is a significant drop in depth but punters think he can run well. He’s at $4.20 and rock solid.
Calanda is a notable drifter in early betting, sitting at $4.60 after opening $4.20. Aide Memoire opened a silly price at $4 and is rightfully easing, now at $10. Platinum Angel ($7-$5) has been well supported.
