Handy gelding Ninth Legion is the big firmer in betting for Saturday’s Shannon Stakes at Rosehill.
The team Hawkes trained six-year-old has been backed from $5.50 into $4.60 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Vashka has remained firm and still holds favouritism on $4.00.
In the Stan Fox Stakes, classy three-year-old Press Statement dominates the market at $1.40. Rageese ($5.00) and Shards ($8.00) are the only other runners to attract support.
“Ninth Legion can be inconsistent, but there was a lot to like about his first-up effort. He’s drawn to get the gun run and if he turns up again, betting suggests he’ll be hard to beat,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
