Punters have waited until close to the start of the first before opening their wallets on the feature the $250,000 Hobart Cup with a flood of money now coming for the favourite.
The Maher/Eustace trained Al Galayel opened at $3.20 in markets on Wednesday but wasn’t favoured by punters which saw him ease out to $3.60 but as time closed in on the first of the card punters have shown heavy support for the class runner of the field.
Al Galayel was at $3.50 in markets this morning but the big money has come for him which has seen his odds slashed into his current price of $2.50 and looks like he may start shorter if the support continues.
With the money for the favourite nearly all other runners have eased in betting.
