Two massive bets on a horse who is an unconfirmed runner in the $10m Everest suggest that someone knows something regarding a slot in the race.
The two unusually large bets have been placed on Deploy to win next months The Everest despite the horse not having a slot in the race.
It was reported earlier HERE a punter had $4,000 on Deploy to win the race with the TAB at $21 whilst online bookmaker Sportsbet has just tweeted they have taken a massive bet of $20,000 for the last start G2 Theo Marks Stakes runner at $11 to win.
There are currently 4 slots unaccounted for with Chris Waller holding one of those unconfirmed slots meaning Deploy will need to receive one of three remaining slots to get a spot in the race but the money coming for the in form sprinter suggests a deal may have already been done.
Sportsbet has turned Deploy’s odds into $8.50 but punters can still get $34 with Ladbrokes’ Odds Boost.
