Toorak Handicap winner Im Thunderstruck has been installed $4.50 favourite for the $7.5million Golden Eagle at Rosehill on Saturday with the declaration of the final field.
The Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained galloper was $11 in All In betting prior to his slashing third in the Sir Rupert Clarke on September 18. Fluctuations of $11-$9 and $9-$6 followed shortly after, with his price getting to $4 after his Toorak Handicap win before bottoming out at $3.50.
Epsom Handicap winner Private Eye ($6) and import Maximal ($9) are the only other runners in single figures.
Since Final Field betting commenced earlier today, Ellsberg ($17-$13) has been one of the main firmers along with Love Tap and Vangelic who are $34-$26 respectively.
TAB also opened Final Field betting on the Victoria Derby today with Forgot You, the Vase winner last Saturday, still heading the betting $3.50 after coming up with gate eight. His main rival in the market, Gunstock, is $4 second pick but has drawn terribly (19).
