An unlucky sixth in the Cox Plate was enough for online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to install Happy Trails as favourite for Saturday’s $1 million dollar Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington.
The two-time Group One winner heads the market at $5.50 ahead of Cox Plate combatant Side Glance and Contributor (both at $6.50).
Criterion looks right in the race at $7.00, as does Caulfield Cup runner-up Rising Romance at the same quote.
“Happy Trails was a beaten favourite in last year’s Mackinnon, but Paul Beshara has the horse running as well as ever’’ saidsportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
