Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports that Sepoy is an easing favourite for tomorrowâ€™s Golden Slipper, while some punters as late as last Saturday morning backed Salade at $331 before he streeted the field in his first race start in the Pago Pago Stakes.
â€œSepoy was $2.00 for the Slipper before the Todman Stakes, $2.90 afterwards and is now out to $3.30 after drawing barrier 10,â€ said sportsbet.com.auâ€™s Haydn Lane.
â€œSalade was $331 in early betting until last Saturday morning, was backed into $201 just before the Pago Pago and has been backed in again from $15 to $13 this week.â€
â€œThereâ€™ll be some decent collects if a roughie gets up. This week weâ€™ve laid Mosheen to lose $250,000 at $101, and Satin Shoes to lose $60,000 at $13.â€
In Golden Slipper specials betting, the boys ($1.25) are expected to beat the girls ($3.10) in the Battle of the Sexes, while a margin of less than one length is the $2.20 favourite in winning margin betting.
