She might be touted as the heir apparent to Winx but punters have taken a stand against Mystic Journey in her return run in todays PB Lawrence Stakes at Caulfield.
Current Cox Plate favourite Mystic Journey will return to racing in todays Group Two PB Lawrence Stakes at Caulfield where she opened as the very short priced favourite in the market at $1.80 which did not entice punters especially with a rain affected track and is now out to $2.10.
Mystic Journey still remains the clear favourite in PB Lawrence Stakes betting but bookies are having trouble writing a bet on her with a flood of money coming for the more experience Hartnell to get the better of the star Tasmanian mare.
Hartnell like Mystic Journey makes his return to racing in the event but was arguably unlucky behind Mystic Journey in the $5m All Star Mile which has prompted punters to back the Godolphin galloper due to the discrepancy in the price between the two horses seeing his opening quote of $5.00 slashed into $3.80.
Outside of the favoured two there has been money for the very talented Fifty Stars who is $9.00 into $7.00 and some specking at big odds for Sikandarabad at $51’s and Neufbosc at $41’s.
