Was the amazing first up win of Hush Writer in the McKell Cup (2400m) a fluke? Well Sportsbet.com.au think not as he’s a clear favourite to win the Winter Cup (2400m) this Saturday.
The WaterBott trained stayer surprised many with an outstanding on speed effort to win the McKell Cup first up a fortnight ago. If he improves off that, he’ll be hard to beat, and is at $2.30 to repeat the dose.
The horse he beat, High Bridge, is on the second line of betting at $3.80 and relatively solid. Yogi is unchanged at $6 while the interesting runner is Saunter Bay at $9, who is having start two in Australia after failing on a bog first up at the Gold Coast behind subsequent Stakes winner The Candy Man.
