Team Hawkes holds a strong hand in tomorrow’s Epsom Handicap, but their outsider Ninth Legion is the one punters want.
Ninth Legion ($11) is the second best backed runner for the Randwick Group 1 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Stablemate Toydini ($6.00) is unwanted, favourite Royal Descent is firm at $4.40 an topweight Boban ($7.50) is the best backed.
“The Hawkes camp has been going really well lately and it’s no surprise money has come for Ninth Legion. He’s run some good races his last two starts, has 52kg and is going to be right on the speed,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
In Randwick’s other Group 1 races, Winx and First Seal are $2.50 equal favourites for the Flight Stakes. In The Metropolitan, punters have come for Junoob ($4.60), who has knocked Spillway ($4.80) out of top spot.
