Spanish Mission has opened as the $1.70 favourite with TAB to take out the Zipping Classic at Caulfield on Saturday.
A gallant third placegetter in the Melbourne Cup, the 6YO is looking to claim his first win in Australia and for new trainer Peter Moody in the Group 2 race. Although a clear favourite, the international is followed in the market by Anthony and Sam Freedman-trained Warning at $6.00 and Ciaron Maher and Dave Eustace’s Smokin’ Romans at $9.00.
In Sydney, Ellsberg has firmed from $5.00 in to $4.00 for the Group 3 Festival Stakes. Kosciuszko winner Art Cadeau originally opened as equal favourite but has since drifted from $5.00 out to $6.00, while there has been early money for Linas Hero and Brutality who have both been backed $11 in to $8.00.
