Off the back of a sharp first up win, Monsieur Gustave has been best backed in early betting to take out the George Moore Stakes (1200m) at Doomben this Saturday.
The Daryl Hansen trained sprinter led them a merry dance to win last Wednesday at Ipswich in the Keith Noud. He is popular with the punters once again. He opened $5.50 and has been crunched into $4.00 aided by the scratching of Egyptian Symbol who will run in the Starlight Stakes at Rosehill. That has seen Calanda drift in the market, out to $3.30 after opening the $3 favourite.
Beauty Flame, the former Hong Kong Group winner, is $11 and there has been support after he eased to $17.
