Adelaide trained Happy Trails is the best backed Emirates Stakes runner with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Happy Trails opened at $17, drifted to $21 before firming to $15, holding more than double the money than any other runner.
“It’s not surprising he has had good support. Happy Trails did not get the best of luck in the Cox Plate and he has D. Oliver aboard this time,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
“He’s back to his pet distance here and the punters obviously think he can recapture the form that saw him win the Feehan Stakes.”
In a wide open betting race, Fawkner, prepared by Melbourne Cup winning trainer Robert Hickmott, is the $4.60 favourite. Fat Al and Solzhenitsyn have both been solid in betting at $7.00.
Ambidexter ($7.50) and Free Wheeling ($7.00) have been unwanted in betting and Yosei is the best backed roughie at $26.
