A punter has taken a massive risk or knows something that we don’t know placing a $4,000 bet on an Everest runner without a confirmed slot in the race.
The TAB punter placed the $4,000 bet on the Gerald Ryan-trained Deploy who was at $21 in all-in markets for The Everest 2017 before being trimmed in to $13 after the bet was placed.
Deploy won his last in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes where he streaked his rivals to win by 4 lengths in the 1300m race in record time.
Spoke to @torryburnstud John Cornish no deal done. Brave bet. looks a worthy Everest contender.
