Sportsbet.com.au punters are warming to the Darren Weir trained Kiwia to take out the Warrnambool Cup (2350m) on Thursday.
The four year old won brilliantly on debut at this Carnival last year and has gone on to great things since. He returns off the back of a luckless effort in the VOBIS Gold Heath behind Self Sense. He bolted up in that debut on a wet track so give in the ground for Thursday is no issue and the Weir/Lane combo has been lethal. No surprise to see him firm to $2.45 after opening $3.50.
There has also been good support for the stablemate, Yogi, who never looked likely on a bottomless surface last time out in the Terang Cup. He is $5.25 in from $8.00 with good each way money rolling in.
The one that is rock solid is Scholarly, who is at $9.00 in from $10.
