According to punters, Signoff will win Saturday’s Lexus Stakes and go on to be one of the top chances in next Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup.
Signoff has attracted strong support to win the Lexus Stakes at Sportingbet.com.au since markets went up on Wednesday and the Darren Weir-trained five-year-old is also shortening in Sportingbet’s Melbourne Cup market.
“We’ve taken one bet of $10,000 and plenty of other big stuff for Signoff and he’s now $2.80 from $2.90 for the Lexus,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
“His Melbourne Cup odds have also been crunched in the last ten days courtesy of a huge spike in interest and bet numbers.”
Signoff’s odds of winning the Cup have halved from $34 into $17 at Sportingbet in the past ten days. That makes him an equal sixth favourite with Red Cadeaux and behind Admire Rakti ($5), Protectionist ($6), Lucia Valentina ($6.50), Fawkner ($10) and Mutual Regard ($10).
