The big money has started to roll in for Helmet in the Cox Plate at Sportingbet Australia with the star three year old backed from $3.50 to $3.25.

Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said big bets started rolling in once Descarado was a confirmed scratching with Helmet now likely to get an easier time in front.

“We took a bet of $10,000, a couple of bets of $5000 and a number of bets of $3000 and $2000 and he will run a clear favourite now after there was little between him and Jimmy Choux in early betting,” Sullivan said.

“There is likely to be a lot less early pressure in the race with Descarado scratched and Helmet could well get an unchallenged lead with only the likes of Lion Tamer and possibly Playing God pushing forward from out wide.

“Less pressure and the fact he will only carry 49.5kg should give him every chance to stick out a strong 2040m.”

Sullivan said Jimmy Choux had been friendless with punters drifting from $3.80 to $5.00 with good money still rolling in for Rekindled Interest.

“Rekindled Interest has been a big go shortening from $13 to $6.00 and he is now challenging Jimmy Choux for second favouritism after opening nearly $10 longer in betting,” Sullivan said.
