Melbourne Cup aspirant Surprise Baby is the Sportsbet.com.au favourite to resume a winner when he lines up this Saturday at Moonee Valley in the Feehan Stakes (1600m).
The Paul Preusker trained stayer hasn’t raced since finishing a mighty fifth in the Melbourne Cup last year. Jumped out well in July and produced a sharp piece of work earlier this week. He heads the market at $3.30 and is rock solid.
The notable early drifter is Harbour Views, who opened $3.50 but has been friendless since the market opened, now out to $4.50. There has been a couple of runners that have been popular in early betting, namely Regal Power ($11-$6.5-$7) and Sirrconi ($10-$5.5), both on the seven day back up.
