European invader Johannes Vermeer is the big mover in a Caulfield Cup betting shake-up with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Prepared by champion Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien, Johannes Vermeer has tightened from $26 into $6.50 equal favourite with Humidor.
The five-year-old ran a slashing second to Gailo Chop last Saturday and punters have launched into the five-year-old.
Bonneval has eased from $4.80 out to $7.00, but remains the best supported runner, ahead of Japanese stayer Admire Deus ($10 into $8.50).
Amelie’s Star ($7.50) is the only other runner under double figures, after Harlem eased from $9.00 out to $10.
“No doubt Johannes Vermeer will take great benefit from his first Australian start. He’s prepared by the master Aidan O’Brien and since the horse’s great run on the weekend punters are jumping on the bandwagon,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
