Illustrious Lad has been in fab form this time in for the Gelagotis boys and Sportsbet.com.au punters are keen on him to continue his purple patch when he steps out in the Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1300m) this Saturday at Sandown.
The five year old ran down the straight on Derby Day and was given a super steer from Anthony Darmanin to win, and he remains on. Despite drawing awkwardly here, he is the one the punters want. He opened $4.80 and has been well supported, now into $3.20.
Under The Louvre opened the $3.60 favourite but there are question marks as to how well he is going, so he has eased to $4.40. The one that has had interest at a price is Super Cash, who was enormous in defeat on Derby Day. She opened $9 and now sits at $8.50.
