Super-consistent gelding Upham is surprisingly being ignored by punters for Saturday’s Queensland Derby.
Upham, from the in-form Peter Moody yard, has drifted from $9.00 out to $10 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Last start winner Werther is the firm $3.75 favourite ahead of Master Of Arts ($4.80).
In the J.J. Atkins, favourite Press Statement has tightened from $8.00 into $6.00 ahead of Bassett ($7.00).
“The Derby looks a tough race for punters. It is neck and neck, in the popularity race between Werther and Master Of Arts. Upham, who has been in the money in seven of his eight starts, is yet to attract a lot of interest,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
